Great venue. We took advantage of the bottomless lunch and it was fantastic.

The table was just a bit cramped for 3 people. Forgot part of our order hence service is only 3 stars.

Brilliant service and very friendly without being intrusive. The garlic pizza looked good and tasted even better---a good start! I had Yellow Fin tuna and it was done perfectly to my liking and my husband had an entree serve Calamari which was very tender and he was happy too. After the Show, we returned for Affogatos and they were great too. Loved this restaurant---not pretentious, just very friendly and knowledgeable staff who went out of their way to please. Thanks guys---it was a pleasure to dine there.

The staff were very polite and helpful. We asked for the lighting to be turn down a little and it was no problem to the friendly staff. The food was beautifully prepared. My steak was so tender. We enjoyed our evening.

Unfortunately the food was overcooked. Scallops, chicken breast and lamb rack were all overdone. Chicken breast was very dry. Flatbread was nice. Music was too loud and chairs need something on the bottom of legs as they scrape loudly on floor. Staff were friendly and attentive. An ok meal but not fantastic.

Arrived at 12.45pm for a 1pm lunch reservation and there was no staff around. Server that eventually appeared was surprised to hear that I had made a reservation. Clearly, we were not expected. Prior to seating us, we were reminded that the restaurant was an Italian restaurant and “did not serve Asian food”. This was a pointless statement and uncalled for. Server, who spoke with a French accent, evidently had a preconceived idea about the Asian palate. I was deciding if we should just walk away but decided to stay as we were all hungry. I was glad we decided to stay as the food was good in both taste and quality. It would have been a perfect experience if server could lose her condescending and racist attitude.

The slowest service I've ever had - over an hour for the entree. Fortunately we weren't in a hurry.

Understanding and taking into consideration that it was New Year's eve, it was still dissapointing to turn up at 7:50pm for an 8:00pm sitting only to have to wait till 9:00pm for the entree then till 10:30pm for the main to turn up. At the end we had to ask for the dessert to be brought out with the main and we ended up having to scoff the food down as we were late for our next gatherig, thus we could not enjoy the meal. This was our first time at this establishment and I think it will be our last. Not very happy.

Lovely food, but service was disappointing.... we had children and they weren’t served dinner until 945 pm, we arrived at 730 pm... adults main courses weren’t served until 1030 pm... it was a busy night at the restaurant, but the extensive delays aren’t acceptable... we asked to speak to the manager to voice our frustrations, but he too avoided us, and didn’t appear until after our main courses arrived...

We were actually staying at Sebel Docklands (ACCOR), but wanted to dine at South Wharf prior to a concert at the Arts Centre ... staff at the restaurant were most welcoming and went all the extra mile to serve us well! Thank you indeed!!!

Nice meal to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We loved the meal, the antipasto platter, beef cheeks, veal, and the lovely deserts of the chocolate self saucing desert. Perfect.
