Professional and excellent service. Staff was friendly and attentive, providing a fantastic dining experience. Came here before in 2017 and again today (4 Sep), was very impressed both times. Some of the best Italian food I’ve had in Australia. The food is delicious and the set lunch menu is an extremely good deal.
Good Friday special - Home Delivered "The Ultimate Lunch/Dinner Box" We ordered home delivery for Good Friday and it was absolutely brilliant. Our order was delivered on-time and the quality of the food was absolutely spot-on. Also ordered a bottle of Prosecco which was a great drop. We have dined at the restaurant in the past so we are very pleased to see these guys adapting to the significant challenges associated with C-19 i.e home delivery and pick-up service. Very tough times for anyone in the hospitality industry at the moment but these guys are a terrific local business and I really hope they are still trading on the other side! Try them and you won't be disappointed. Trust me on this one as I absolutely love my food and I am always in search of businesses and folks that provide outstanding customer service- which these guys do!!
We had an absolutely fantastic evening with all the delicious dishes and great wine. The service was great having Roberto as our waiter,who was very attentive and highly professional and added aditional italian flavour to the already fantastic authentic italian experience. We started with a mixed plateau of antipasti complimented well with chilled Prosecco.The arrancini followed and they were absolutely delicious. I chose porcini&king brown mashroom risoto with goat cheese and truffle mousse and crispy leak. it was just perfect complimented with Shiraz. The salmon fillet with quinoa and pearly cous-cous,fennel and chargrilled zucchini was simply fantastic. The deserts did not disappointed either.The dark Belgian chocolate marquise with honey wipped ricotta and citrus segments and candid walnuts was the desired great finish of the meal. We would love to come back again and would recommend it as a "must go" culinary destination in Brighton.
I’m very surprised with the negative comments as we have only ever experienced great food and service over the last 12 years. Thanks so much for our wonderful wedding anniversary dinner last night Chris. The gnocchi is truely the best in Melbourne and you must never stop making it! Looking forward to dining at the restaurant in person.
Hard to fault this amazing restaurant... The food is super good... If I am picky, I would say that; Like most restaurants, it can get noisy...
Good food. Great service. Beautiful wined
Welcoming, vibrant atmosphere on a chilly July Saturday night. Very popular, so book in advance. The seafood linguine was delicious and filling. The special roasted pumpkin soup with goat's cheese was a highlight. Thanks to the attentive staff, we stayed 3 hours over a wonderful bottle of wine. Definitely worth returning.
A great Restaurant with a modern Italian/Australian menu. Food is always good and pricing reasonable. Good wine selection but expensive. Nice decor and friendly and attentive staff. Owner Chris is always very helpful.
