We have eaten here twice and we really like it. The atmosphere is always warm and inviting and the staff are friendly and accommodating. We have been able to walk in and find a table without a booking and it is always excellent value for money. We had a three course meal for two with a glass of wine and it only came to 70 - 80$. I have had the Marinara dish twice which is apparently made from local seafood and it's always very nice and hubby has really enjoyed the pizza. Last time we ate we couldn't finish our meals as they were a really good size (and we ate too much entrée) however they do let you take home your leftovers so that's an added bonus as it makes a great lunch the next day. The only criticism is that my Bruschetta was a bit too oily, although hubby enjoyed it, and I would really love it if they had a Lasagne on the menu. We suggest you park across the road or on Gatton St as it's hard to get a park on Sheridan St.

Outstanding little Italian restaurant. Huge menu to select from including Pizza, pasta, veal, chicken, seafood..... Pizza is thin crust and delicious. Service is excellent and the ambience is fine. You will probably need a car to get there though.

We stayed near by and visited for our evening meal. The service was quick and on hand for help with the menu.

We all had pasta which was fantastic and one of the best we had.

Unless you are super hungry stick to the regular size main and do not be fooled with the words 'small'

We would go back

The pasta was excellent. The pizza was good, nothing exceptional. The service could have been much better
