Having been asked to book at a specific time & to pre-order our food we could not understand why we waited 45 minutes. We could have arrived at the time we wanted to be seated at!

This is very much a place to visit if you like authentic Italian food. The waiters are mainly family and Italian. Be prepared to be flirted with ladies. It is always a very good experience eating here.

Nice pizzas with plenty of toppings, good service and a rustic atmosphere. The dessert was almost the same size as the main courses!

I was nearly put off by an earlier reviewer but as this was the only place we could find open in Penrith at 5.30pm on a Sunday, we decided to give it a go. I am so glad we did. The pasta we had was delicious and freshly cooked. The service was very friendly and attentive. The after dinner coffee... More
