The pavlova was superb. The pistachio cream was amazing and I would honestly go back and just order ten pavlovas for dessert. The mains were also amazing. Super fresh ingredients, lovely service, we loved it. Keep up the great work!

This is a great location and great service. The value for money is questionable because the meals were pricey and not very big servings.

This place still has the flavours and if you haven't been before it's worth a try. On the night we went the wait staff were friendly and attentive but the service was quite slow. There was nearly ten minutes between all the mains arriving at the table with the pasta coming last by which time the steaks were almost cold. Also for those that are not native Calabrese it might be worth warning a 14 year old there will be so much 'Nduja in the pappardelle only a true chilly lover is going to find it pleasant. The portion sizes were a bit on the lean side for the price so the value feels like its slipped a bit. We wont be rushing back to what once was a family favourite.

The automatic booking and confirmation was simple and straightforward. The tables were spaced appropriately. We ordered 2 first courses to share between 2 couples and 4 different main courses, all delicious. The Shiraz by the glass was very nice. We arrived early. The concrete floor makes conversation harder if the restaurant is fuller. We will be back.

Love my Truffles. This was by far one of the most well thought out truffle degustation menus I have had in some time. The menu really showcased truffles by matching truffles to ingredients that enhanced the truffle experience. The menu was beautiful executed and every dish was a mouth fill of joy. My favourites courses was the amazing desert and the gnocchi was the best I have ever had. Soft and silky with lashing of truffle. I was in heaven.
Please can we have another truffle night!!!!

Great restaurant. Had three courses and wine. Lamb Skewer and Arancini Entrees were tender/tasty. Barramundi and Crab Meat spaghetti mains were fantastic and finished with Nutella Pizza and Ferrero Rocher Gelato - perfect. Had a nice Rose wine. Service was attentive and friendly. Great atmosphere as well. Highly recommend.

We went there for Valentines Day dinner. We didn’t get any drink until 30mins after arriving. After 1hr and 10 mins despite repeated requests we had only one of the three entrees on the set menu. They were clearly struggling to serve people on time but no one would have an honest conversation and tell us what was going on. We just left and had to buy McDonalds since we never got any more food

The food was lovely enjoy it very much, the service was great the staff very friendly but the ambience is not there, like it used to be before the gym took part of the restaurant.

I recommended my friend to go to the restaurant me but we were disappointed, as it has changed! I haven't been to the restaurant 4 four years as I live outside of Sydney now and I remembered it how it was I use to go with my wife every second or third week, Now it doesn't have that same feeling anymore. It not a special place as it was Its just a restaurant
