Perfect for an early dinner before a 7pm Opera House concert. We ordered a selection of plates to share. Loved the beetroot 2 ways and the calamari and zucchini fritters Tiramisu Martini and the Wild berry spritz were outstanding!!

Great location, great food, great service. One minor thing though, we had to ask for an updated bill as we were charged the full price first, it was fine as we were a group of friends but it mightn't been awkward for a business meal etc. Would come back here again.

One of the best pizzas I've ever eaten, and the mushroom gnocchi was absolutely delicious. Great value meal for 2x including wine and salad for just $65. Great location and lovely service with cheery smiles all round. Will definately be back. Thank you!

My partner and father had the salmon and both absolutely loved it. The focaccia was amazing and I wish I'd got a pizza, judging by the fluffiness of the dough.

My mum and I got the crab pasta, she had the gluten free option and it was cooked to perfection. My past however was disappointing, if we weren't already getting 50% off, I would have complained. The pasta was all stuck together and a little tasteless, we think that because mum is on a low salt diet, they did low salt on mine as well but I was disappointed in the quality given that it is an Italian restaurant.

Lovely cheese platter. I had the Tasmanian salmon mains which was delicious. Staff not very attentive. Took a while to take our order, when we had a show to go to, so were in a bit of a rush. Otherwise they were friendly and polite. Lovely cocktails.

Perfect for our day in the city. We were greeted happily. the waiters were friendly and attentive. Our choices from the menu: the steak was cooked as requested. Pizza was tasty, perhaps could have been in the oven a few minutes more for a bit more browning. We will return. Was great for lunch before a 2pm concert at the Opera House. Thanks to the staff

It was my husband’s birthday and I wanted to treat him with great dinner at great restaurant but within my budget. I booked this restaurant salt, meats and cheese from first table and we loved our birthday dinner. It was a great service with really friendly and helpful staff. We were so happy at the end.

Quick and easy pre-theatre dinner. Only marked 4 for service because the first version of the bill didn’t have the first table discount. Otherwise we were perfectly happy. Thanks

We had a super dinner of lamb shoulder roast for two and pumpkin risotto. It was way too much food for just two but we worked hard to try to eat it. Highly recommend. The waitress was very helpful with recommendations that worked with our allergies and preferences.
