It looked authentic Italian as soon as you walked in the door. There were young men making pizza in the centre of the room. They were all smiling and welcoming. We were taken upstairs and seated in a cramped position but cosy. Our waiter was sensational. He was funny, friendly & helpful. We all had a great time. We were quickly given drinks and complimentary bread and olives. The children had Carbonara which smelt delicious. We had Charcuterie, Caprese salad and bruschetta between us - all very tasty, followed by the Flounder served with vegetables. All very nicely cooked, Fritto Misto and Marinara Pasta. We had very nice wine. The waiter was able to recommend and describe it to us.
We opted out of desserts. I think $15.90 for ice-cream and six of us nearly $96 is a bit much. Otherwise prices are average for a decent establishment. We thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience and would definitely recommend.

Most authentic Italian pizzas on the south side of the Yarra! Great service and the place was full which is always a good guide in terms of how good the takeaway is. Highly recommend.

Had a wonderful meal at this comfortable restaurant. The garlic focaccia to start was perfect and the pasta dishes were well cooked and full of flavour. Staff were well placed and were present but not intrusive. Will be back.

Our group of 4 friends had dinner here on a Sunday night. The restaurant is deceptively large having a long narrow dining area at the entrance downstairs as well as upstairs seating.

We were given menus promptly and asked if we wanted drinks; 2 ordered wine and the others juice. Soon after our orders were taken.
The meals came in about 15 minutes and were all delivered hot. We found them to be a good size and tasty.
We managed to squeeze in some tasty desserts as well.

If there is a downside it is the ambient noise coming from the barista and pizza maker right in the middle of the eating area.
The manager acknowledged that this was a problem but wasn't sure how he could rectify it.

We would probably return and eat upstairs.
