We took advantage of the two take away Pizza's for $35 deal. The Pizza's were OK but not great. Not sure but the bases seemed like those pre made one's you buy in the supermarket. Toppings though were nice.

Great location at the end of the Esplanade and overlooking the beach. Very busy each night we walked past and after speaking to another couple who raved about it, we visited it ourselves. Great selection of Italian dishes which also catered for those that don't eat meat. My wife had the Gnocchi with pumpkin ina creamy sauce. It tasted as good as it looked. I had the Spaghetti Marinara with a ingredients that were fresh and not from a packet. I would rate it as one of the better one's I've had. The service from the Italian staff was attentive and friendly. For the quality of the food it was pretty reasonable. We couldn't have afforded to eat there every night but as it was a special occasion, we were pleased we we had.

This is one of our favourites in Palm Cove. We ate here a couple of times last time we were in Palm Cove. Traditional Italian food with the accompanying music. We thought the prices had gone up a bit since last time and we ate on a public holiday unknown to us and they charged us an extra 15%. We noticed that other restaurants only charged 10% so thought that was a bit over. We still enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. It's lovely at night as they put white tablecloths on and light candles so it's a nice setting outside on a lovely Palm Cove evening. We also had pizza take away one night.

As we love Italian food, we were instantly drawn to this restaurant. We arrived in late on a Friday evening and we were greeted warmly and enjoyed our first of 4 meals we had there during our weeks stay. The place is very busy so book if you can, but if you have to wait a while, it's worth it. The wait staff are lovely and very engaged with their customers. We had a lovely chat with the owner who works hard to make his guests happy. We'll be back again next time we visit beautiful Palm Cove.
