Not cheap for just a Pizza and 2 local beers in cans. For the bill, I would expect properly made italian pizza and a bit generous. I get it, it’s probably a bit upmarket due to its location in the heart of commercial strip but I still expect value for money. Service is great though.

The staff were so welcoming and attentive as soon as we walked through the door, always checking if we needed anything more. That’s how customer service should be!! We ordered starters, main and dessert all of which were great! My spaghetti marinara was especially very good. The ambience was lovely. Would definitely go back!

The restaurant was buzzing on the Saturday night we visited. Whilst the exterior doesn't look like much, we had a friendly greeting on arrival and good service all night. The Sicilian Duck was to die for, as was the Veal Scallopini, very tender with its lemon sauce. The Mushroom Risotto was enjoyed by one of our party of 4, the only miss was the Spaghetti Puttanesca. Wine prices were fair and an enjoyable night was had. Can be a bit noisy, so not the place for a romantic evening. Pizzas were also on the menu around the $25 mark.

First time Tassie traveller and upon last day of holiday-trip landed upon this beauty of a bar/restaurant. From the friendly waiter who served us (looking like the tired hikers we were sitting outside) came over with an enthusiastic smile and set us down with some menus and glasses poured (choice of sparkling or still.) and took orders for other drinks too. Coffee was superb but like many other reviewers is just one persons opinion. Upon feeling only slightly peckish I ordered the arancini balls (4 total) and wow was I blown away, presentation was stellar and topped my list of ‘best of’ in the business, compliments to the chef. Other friend ordered garlic bread and I couldn’t help myself nor stop thinking how amazing these two combos would go together; using the bread to soak up the remainder of the sauces is a great Italian trait. And thanks to the other staff member who graciously agreed with my opinion and was very thankful for the compliment towards the shop.

Looking for somewhere quick to eat & stumbled upon this unpretentious gem. Ordered the gnocchi carbonara & pizza arugula. Both dishes were very flavourful . Prices seemed on the slightly higher side for pizza & pasta however the quality justified the cost.
