Everything was just perfect. The Staff were just wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed a Family Birthday Dinner, including bringing our own birthday cake.

I used to frequent this place almost weekly many years ago, I can remember the meals being huge and a wonderful friendly bustling atmosphere. Took my partner & teen kids to dinner and wow things have changed. The restaurant interior hasn't changed at all...I think...More

This restaurant used to be outstanding. I celebrated my 50 here two years ago and have eaten here regularly for over 20 years. However it must have have been sold recently because the food is dire and service worse. Served frozen pasta and bland chicken....More

Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere and reasonably priced. Just my opinion but why the huge servings that no one can finish? Please consider the old phrase that "less is more". I will not be going back only because I do not like my plate piling high....More

After wanting to go here for 3 years, I finally made it. The pasta and gnocchi were as fresh as the rumours said. The prices excellent and the service homely and accomodating. Thoroughly enjoyed. Could probably get some better air conditioning but apart from that...More

For years I have visited Manly Italian, westernised rather than regionally authentic, it's consistent, large servings, the restaurant at times is quite busy and noisy, if you can forgive it's interiors and appreciate its offerings you won't be disappointed.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
