We had a dinner at apele Italia in Burleigh on Wednsdays and it was absolutely amazing! Not only food was seriously delicious but also service was outstanding despite the fact that they were pretty busy. Our waiter Fabio was very attentive and friendly! For all gluten free pizza lovers their GF pizza base is the best I ever had. I can not wait to be back there soon!😋

My meal was disapointing this time. I have been twice before and it was great. I got the lasagna and it was not heated through enough. For the two of us, it was $80 each which i thought a bit expensive.

We have dined a couple of times before.
The special burnt butter and sage agnolotti was average. The butter was basically just melted with no real sage flavour.
The pizza I ordered was good. But everywhere does a good thin crust pizza these days.
The burrata was fairly flavourless. It pretty much just tasted wet and cold.

Loved Fabio our waiter! Got to speak Italian to him as well! Staff didn’t really care that 2 children were screaming their heads off. Super noisy!!! And service was amazing, except that he forgot one of our dishes, but we reminded him and he was super on top of it! Would come here again! Amazing quality food! The only Italian place that has ever offered vegan cheese alternatives! I was in shock!

Real Italian experience of the best kind. Wanting a change from Coastal blue white decor seafood natural choice. Step inside for browns & of course Sophia Loren gracing the wall. Fabulous service! I did have the Fish Special-Fresh big whole Whiting baked in foil. He had the Ragu fresh pasta! Magnifico. Back to Burleigh for sure!

Delicious authentic Italian food. Generous portions, all the pasta dishes we had were outstanding, and using home-made pasta. Staff are friendly and professional. Can't wait to try the pizza next time and some of the mains but not sure if I'll be able to go past the Parpadelle Funghi - the best I've ever had.

More or less just a pizza and pasta restaurant
Not much choice if you wanted a steak chicken or veal dish compared to other Italian restaurants

Although I say no to recommendation it is not based on food. We were catching up with family and there was a very large loud group of young men who were inconsiderate to those around them. They were constantly up and down and extremely loud and my father in law has bad hearing. We chose your venue as we had been many times before and enjoyed the ambiance. The night was quite unenjoyable.
I am not one to complain as I too work in hospitality but feel an honest review is important

Pizza was excellent! Ambience was good, wine list good but expensive staff friendly and welcoming, menu appealing pasta was very disappointing I expected the Squid ink pasta dish to be made fresh with squid ink not commercially sourced black pasta with a Napoli sauce poured over it. if the pasta had been made with love and passion the restraint would have been very good.
Would go back and recommend it for the Pizza's though.

Everything is great at the very least, but the pizza and the cannoli are spectacular...like making a day trip to Naples and Sicily. If you don't like their food, for God's sake...don't ever go to Italy - you'll hate it!

It is great authentic Italian food, almost everyone who works there from Italy, it is awesome. Truffles, tastes etc. It is not cheapest and decor/atmosphere is not super great, but it is in Burleigh heads, so it is OK. Would recommend to anyone who likes Italian food for sure.
