Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 April 2017

I went to this restaurant with my family for lunch around 11am on a Sunday. Firstly there was no one in the restaurant so we had to ask if they were open and the older gentleman rudely said "of course we are open"...we didn't really have a choice for another place near the mall so we decided to give it ago.

We ordered gnocchi, salad, risotto, and a soup.
They didn't have any lunch menu and the price was quite expensive for being a casual restaurant at a mall. It was a "dinner" price, very pricey. (The salad was around $15 and pasta was over $20 if I recall correctly).

The food was less than average and service was awful. They made us feel like we were a bother to them. If you are spending more than $20 for a plate of pasta, this would not be my best choice.

Came here for lunch with my mum and grandma today and was very disappointed with the service we received, not only was the staff rude ( not the young boy who just started ) but they pretty much said we couldn't have anything we wanted to order and didn't say it nicely. We ordered and ended up with terrible meals and half our order was wrong anyways I didn't have more than one mouthful of mine. Horrible food horrible service

Ordered a pizza and pasta for takeaway, the menu looked really good. When I got home the pizza was stone cold only after a 2 minute drive. The flavour was awful, and not what a pizza should be like. The ravioli tasted like it was boiled and then some cream chucked in. Would not recommend eating food from here, some attention to detail is needed.

We went with a groupon voucher for 4 people but when we got there they sais it was only valid for 2 people as that was what came through the system. We showed them our voucher for 4 people and then they let us in after some conversations.
When we ordered beers they ran out of 2 types of beers and we told them to go to the liqueur shop and get a case. We ordered a $30 wine as well cabernet shiraz and they came back and said it was not in and given us a cabernet merlot instead.
At this stage we were hoping that they had all the ingredients for a pizza. True
The pizzas came out and it was ok.
But when we wanted a coffee the waitress said the machine was tured off.
Food at the end was ok but not to rave about. But the service was very very poor. We wont return again and very disappointed that groupon promotes this business.
