Seated outside on my own decided to ask for Veal Scallopini, not mentioned on the menu, it was a hidden gem, the chef knew exactly how to produce the best I have ever eaten. Service was attentive wines were the real Italian deal, altogether a great dining experience

Dinner recently offered a choice of tables. We chose a table outside and were rewarded with a cool breeze. Service was very good and the meals came quickly. Serving sizes were ridiculously huge. Meals were lovely but too big. We could have shared a meal between two of us!

I went for the spaghetti and meatballs, interesting flavours, sweeter than I expected and it went very well with their recommended house red, 3 glasses and I could have had more :-). I'm not normally a very big red drinker, but this combination went down well. Service was great and fast.

Delicious Italian food cooked to order. Great selection on menu. Indoor/outdoor setting which can be quite noisy due to birds in the trees opposite. Delightful owners who are very attentive to client needs.

Excellent Italian and contemporary food. Hosts very welcoming and attentive. Interesting menu, highly recommend the baked prawns and avocado. Everything is cooked fresh so depending on what you choose there may be a wait. Would definitely eat here again and again. Good wine list.

If trip advisor had half marks I would give it 3.5 as it was better than just good. Pizza had plenty of toppings, good flavour just a bit greasy and floppy. I prefer a thin crusty crust. The setting is rather nice and across from the River. Price about right maybe slightly higher than expected.

We recently had a business lunch at Pacinos. Good choice of menu but as we were a large group we had more lunch than business meeting. It is a busy restaurant so can get quite noisy! Good service and prompt attention. Well worth the visit.

Delightful to hear the lorikeets settling at dusk, although some with sensitive hearing might want ear-plugs during the crescendo. Pleasant venue and hearty Italian food of reasonable quality. As might be expected quite a few dishes are quite fatty and those prone to indigestion may need to choose their dishes carefully. City dwellers accustomed to more choice may find the... More

Location is great , catch the river breeze in a warm Rockie day. Creamy marinara to die for needed lots more napkins though for that slurpy sauce. Only couple of comments the garlic bread did not arrive just as well as the marinara was filling & the hedge need to be trimmed do shorties can see the river. :)
