Disappointed and underwhelmed!
Food was ok, presentation wrong; truckstop type crockery including the salt and pepper. Ideal for tourists and the regular local backpackers. We were well over dressed and left assp.

Terrible food. Tastes like dolmio sauces from coles. Do yourself a favour and go to Crinitis across the road.

Last night our group of 4 had a fabulous meal at Manly Italian Each of us were very pleased with our meals and the staff were extremely attentive even though the restaurant was packed My Veal Marsala was the best I have ever had! The room was cosy and warm, which was appreciated in the cold & rainy weather We would certainly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back next time we visit Sydney

Was here last night for a birthday dinner and OH LORD! As Italian living in Sydney I never put my expectation too high when I go to Italian restaurants however this was definitely an (bad) EXPERIENCE!
The interiors and menu have not changed since 1985, dark and dusty it definitely needs a makeover.
Even tho it was a fairly quite night the service was beyond slow. 3 floor staff and It took over 15mins to take our order. After 1 hour waiting for 7 plates of pasta and no one coming to check our table we asked where our meals were, the answer? "i do not know". The waitress not only never checked on us nor brought us water or bread to make up for the wait but she couldn't even be bothered to go and check with the kitchen why tables were not being served. But let's get to the food. Italian restaurant you expect pretty good pasta right? Well forget it. I ordered a spaghetti carbonara and they were bland, tasteless and floating in heavy cream (what a delish for $20).
On the positive note the bill took 2seconds to come!!!!

Summing it up this place is not worth anyones time - seriously pick anything else around there, even Macca's can cook better meals and at least they smile when they serve you!!!

Good fresh food with particularly good lasagne....veal dishes were also good. We were there on a fairly quiet night but definitely worth a visit and prices were reasonable.
