Any reviews yet?
I heard their antipasta platter is awesome.
Reminds me of that episode of Australian Masterchef where Jaime cooked it.
I'd love to give it a try!

Just went yesterday. Nothing fantastic.

When we were seated, the initial service level was pretty good. A lady sat us down and told us our table captain will attend to us shortly. A guy then came over and explained their daily specials and also the kids menu. And from there on, service went downhill. We asked for ice water and it was not served until the 3rd time we requested. We were seated at a table with 4 settings but there were 6 of us, and they did not provide enough glasses, and cutleries. We requested for individual plates to as we were sharing the food ordered and none came. And they mixed up our orders.

Food wise, pretty disappointing. We ordered 3 types of pasta and 2 starters and 2 kids meals. Chose the small portion as we were not big eaters, but even for small eaters like us, the small portion was pretty small. The kids meal came with a salad but it was not edible, the vege mix was too bitter for the kids.

After a rather disappointing meal, we decided to skip dessert there. Don't think we will be back there again.
