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!

The seafood risotto was beautiful, partner had the meatballs and they were melt in your mouth good! The cannoli though, another level of deliciousness!! Can not recommend enough! Also nabbed a booking about 15 minutes before we wanted to eat.

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.

Wow, what a great experience. From the time we entered to the time we left, fantastic.
The waitresses were very attentive and efficient each o e i tune with the other and with what had to be done.
The food was an explosion of flavours with every bite. I followed you guy's on facebook for about 10 month's but this was the first time going and it definitely won't be the last. It was worth the 45 minute drive.

It felt like we were in a production line. Waitress very pleasant but we felt rushed. Prices on the menu were not the correct price. Wine very expensive. My agnoloti was very bland not much filling. My husbands meal was nice.

The staff were exceptional, very professional and friendly. The food was nice, some sauces are a little bland but others like your Agnolotti pasta was delicious. Will definitely go back there and especially due to they have vegetarian options and meat dishes to suit all our families diets. Also, we can eat outside with our puppies. Thanks!

Great new find, creative and traditional authentic Italian options in a cosy but vibrant atmosphere with mostly Italian excellent waiters and perhaps the best house made gluten free pizza in Australia.... Gluten free options extensive but usual boring gluten free packet penne that they charge you extra for whilst everyone else enjoys beautifully done hand made pasta for $3 less. Never understood why nearly all restaurants do that.... And yes I'm a real coeliac and I buy excellent quality GF penne at $3 for a whole 500gram pack (4 serves....)

Food was fantastic but we were charged $5.00 for still water, even though I checked with the waiter that it wasn’t bottled water. If I wanted to pay for water I would have requested sparkling so I found this a bit annoying, it was as though we were tricked into buying it when all we wanted was some cold tap water.
