“Food + Service = worth repeating”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Movies in Rosebank are something I do. Dinner before is a pre-requisite and this is a favourite spot. Fine dining it is not but it is good food served efficiently and with a smile. The specials are varied and tempting and I have never been unhappy with anything I have eaten here. It says something about an establishment when you keep going back.

“BUSINESS LUNCH”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is a Primi restaurant in The Zone - central Rosebank. I was there for lunch with friends and noticed there were mostly business people in large groups. They have a smoking section called The Studio just off the main restaurant. The background music was lovely and our waiter Simo gave us excellent service. Pity the food was not as tasty as it looked.

“Good Service, good food”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Friendly helpful staff, our drinks was serve promptly. Virgin Strawberry daiquiri was out of this world. The waiter knows his menu and could make a few good suggestions. My Pasta Campagnola very nice and my husbands Bolognese taste like home made Bolognese. Thanks for your friendly staff that sings for my husbands birthday. You have make our lunch with friends a nice experience.

“Still rocking this place.”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

With a slightly changed look , with an open kitchen where love is being prepared as they have written in the restaurant . This place is still rocking . A no fuss restaurant serving nice italian food in a great place where anybody can enjoy a nice lunch or dinner.
First course of carpachio and calamari salad very nice . Main course of mutton filled ravioli and salmon penne with a light curry sauce ( i preffered the old way they used to make it with a cream and vodka sauce but also this light curry sauce very nice ) with plenty of meat and fish very nice even if pasta needed another 30 seconds of cooking.
All of this with some nice wine for an aceptable price .
Usually service is very good and fast but yesterday i think our waiter was eather drumk or he just smoked something . Beside forgetting to take our main course order he was extremely slow and seemed to be confused and kind of lost in the restaurant. Furthermore his language was polite but a kind of english i could not or was very difficult to understand,. Guess he smoked one to many yesterday all be it we found it funny but would advise restaurant management to take care.

“never had a bad meal”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

you have to look for this place, as its on the second level of the Rosebank Plaza, but when you find it you will be pleased. Great service, and the food has always been good. Try the beef fillet, mouth watering, so are all the burgers, and the pasta..........hell try everything! hahahahaha
