A gem of a restaurant in the heart of Manly! Great food at very reasonable prices. The service was also excellent - friendly and informal without being pushy. Quiet atmosphere with pleasant background music. All in all a very pleasant experience.
After waiting 20 mins we were served water at our table, then told that the table next to us took precedence because they were the Manly sea eagles football team. Our table had been booked days earlier as it was my 58th birthday dinner. No wonder footy players have a bad reputation when everyone treats them above others. The bad service ensures I never go back. Not a fan of Manly Sea Eagles much anymore either.
Best italian restuarant on the northern beaches been going here for 15 years. The food is amazing and the portion sizes are huge! Only let down is the decor, the place is in desperate need of a makeover and has been for years. It's very dark and dated and would really benefit from a Reno. Still the old warm charm of the place is somewhat pleasant just need to lighten the place up. The snitzel combo is the best dish on the menu, topped with your choice of pasta (see photo) amazing restaurant for the whole family, or romantic dinner for two. Definite recommend!
I loved this restaurant and was a regular many years ago. We went there with a large group of 20. The service was disgusting, a few members of our party were waiting for their mains at least 20 minutes after the rest has received theirs, the staff seemed to think it was quite funny. We weren't even given the chance to order coffee or dessert just handed the bill. Then once paid they started to hoover the floors around us.
The food was poor, service was awful and I will never return nor recommend this restaurant to anyone. Its a real shame as it was a Manly Icon in its day!
I agree with previous comments. Portions are big and great value for money. I was recommended to eat here and I was not disappointed along with the other 8 people I'd made a booking for. Its small but the food makes up for it. You won't be disappointed.
I was happy with the food, very nice lemon sole and nice pasta too, very big portion though, however, the restaurant itself seemed to be lacking of something, outdated deco, different wine glasses at our table, not polished, it might be just needing a makeover.
I took a group of 25 people here. They did a special deal for us with a limited menu which left plenty to choose from. Service was great. They have improved out of sight in the last 6 months. Take a group here and ask for Rosemary. She's a doll.
