The atmosphere was pleasant, and the service was great! Came here with my family, and the 5 of us ordered 2 pizzas, a starter and a pasta which was sufficient. We spent about $180 in total (inclusive of a $60 bottle of wine) The 4 cheese pizza is very nice, but can be a bit heavy for some people, and the La Pizzaiola was delicious though the meat is a tad bit lacking. Both were thin crust and very well done! I definitely recommend this place for any casual Friend or family gatherings, it’s a nice cosy place with great food and atmosphere to dine in.

It is located in a nice quiet neighbourhood so it is a good place to go to if you want a quiet meal but it can be a little inaccessible without a car. The service staff were really attentive and friendly. We ordered the mussels for our appetiser and for the mains, the cod and the tenderloin steak. The mussels were fresh and delicious. The white wine broth sweet and rich but I wished there was more of it. The cod was moist and flaky and was complemented well by the tomato based sauce. The portion of the fish was decent but the sides of a few halves of tiny little potatoes was a little underwhelming. The tenderloin was served nicely medium rare and was really tender. Once again, the puny serving of sides was the only disappointment.

Had wanted to dine at the Braddell Heights Estate branch as it is nearer for us but it seems either the Quandoo reservations are not allowed for their evening hours or they are really that booked up for the next few months. Anyway, brought some overseas friends to the Teacher's Estate branch and it was fabulous, they enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We were glad that we end up in Teacher's Estate branch as it was less crowded, even on a Saturday evening and we could have our conversations without having to shout. Fantastic food!

Excellent service and ambience at the restaurant last night! Although the place was full house, our food arrived promptly. We had a variety of pizzas and pastas.. our favourites include Quattro Stagioni and prosciutto e funghi pizzas and the seafood spaghetti. Focaccia for starters was good as well. Cream of mushroom soup was popular but it was a pity we couldn't order more. Very good experience overall! Cheers!:)

Excellent attentive service and lovely ambience. The pizzas were very decent but a tad soft and didn't hold very well. The melting chocolate cake (aka lava cake) was ordinary, small and the vanilla ice-cream could be of better quality for this price. Overall a good experience to visit if you're looking to explore a new neighbourhood but parking is limited (they're actually quite near the famous Casuarina Curry).

This wasn't our first visit, and the food & service quality have always been consistently good! Pizzas were really good - toppings are generous. Pastas very delicious, and the roast chicken was well-flavoured and tender. It was a birthday celebration and they helped light a candle on the lava cake :) Would definitely be back.
