I have been here for a number of party of 10+ birthday meals. The tables are always too small and guests are squashed together. the wholeeoom is like that though, getting out of your seat and crossing the room can feel impossible.

The staff are usually quite abrupt, rude, slow/ bad at serving. The manager/ owner is often heard shouting at staff and conducting them in a rude way.

The menus average for Italian. Almost all the food have eaten was obviously frozen and was disappointing. I was so unimpressed by the pasta dishes ( which are not made with fresh pasta) tasting awful thati ordered a spinach and chicken salad, it was drenched in oil and the chicken was deepfried. It was inedible.

It's also overpriced.
The only good thing I can say is that
The portions are huge, but huge portions of expensive terrible food just ads to thedisapointment.

Our favourite place to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner - we've tried them all. The food is always well presented with excellent quality and taste, being going there for years.

the meals are so generous its hard to finish but every mouthful is divine. It's so popular it's sometimes hard to get a table because people have heard about the food. We recommend it to all our friends and everybody agrees its great.

The pasta dishes are always excellent. I generally have the one with salmon - it is very addictive. My husband loves the marinara. Helpings are large, you will be pushed to fit in sweets. Can highly recommend. Bookings essential as it gets very busy.

Great value. Best seafood platter we have had, $45 and was plenty of beautiful fresh seafood for 2 people and includes a salad. Awesome $9.50 lunches mon-sat.
