This place is always reliable for decently sized, well-made Italian meals. Highlights include puffy, crusted pizzas topped with favourites like ham, mushroom, artichokes and anchovies, and thick logs of eggplantfilled cannelloni draped with a creamy and fragrant béchamel sauce. Especially good is a lightly oiled salad layered with thick, fatty cuts of Parma and crunchy cucumber. Much less pleasing is what looks like a complimentary bread basket on the table but – unless you’re alert enough to return it – actually costs $4.50, as well as the restaurant’s stubborn refusal to serve plain tap water.
nice salad, soggy pasta and bland sauces! what's going on?? When you pay $100 per head, one would expect higher standards than this. and house wines start at $70! Then of course, they want to close up at 11pm on a sat night! My own pasta's better than the soggy, blah pile i was served with!

A said: “No value whatsoever...”
Food was nice enough,but terrible value for money and eager to kick customers out after 11, despite still eating. $400 for 4 people, plus $5 charge for basic bread basket - what a joke. Cook at home or go to Senso (at least you get great food, great wine and great service for the price).
