I have fussy eaters in my family and this was a definite winner AND cheap! There are so many delicious choices. Dessert is wonderful too.

“Lovely pasta options”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

My 2nd visit was much better than the 1st, previously buying take away Fettucine Marinara which had watery, bland sauce with the seafood. (perhaps it was thawed marinara mix ?). This time I chose the Pumpkin Ravioli, which was plump and delicious and the sauce was rich and tangy. Eating in is an option, take aways are offered cold or heated, and there is a selection of small cakes as well as gelato, drinks & coffee. I took my meal cold and heated it in the hotel microwave without a problem, appreciating the parmesan cheese included in a paper bag. Will definitely return on another visit to Launceston, as the fresh pasta is a much better alternative to other take aways.

“Homemade gelato! Need I say more?”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

These guys may be all about pasta but their gelato's are absolutely devine! I've been back many times now just for the icecream. I'm yet to try their pasta but picked up their menu last time I was in and it sounds really good and well priced.
