They Say

I highly recommend this place. We arrived without a reservation and the place was packed but the manager that greeted us did everything he could to get us a table in short time. We had great service and the food was superb. Both our waitress and the manager continually checked on us despite the fact they were run off their feet. These guy couldn't get any better as they were perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. We will be back and soon I hope.

Good value traditional Italian meal, service was great and meal portions generous. Kids loved their spaghetti and three cheese pizza, tiramisu made by nonna, way too much to finish - overall awesome.

- Matthew Pryse via Facebook

Beautiful alfresco dining, lovely food and great service. Would recommend for anyone visiting Broadbeach.

- Emma Falkenberg via Facebook

One of the best restaurants I have eaten in, across three states. Was so good we ate here two nights in a row. Our wait staff on both nights were exceptional and our food on both nights was awesome with a lot of food left on our plates due to the meal sizes. I recommend the flat pizza with napoli sauce, sprinkled with chilli and parmesan for starters and then anything else, because it's all good, very family friendly atmosphere. Will be our new spot when on the coast.
