Great Italian food, generous portions. I ordered 2 mains (Pizza and Calzone) paired with wine. The option of having gluten-free pizza was definitely a plus.
Very very good Italian food The pizza , the carpaccio is very good
Excellent food! And great service. Will definitely go there again. We had 4 mains amongst 3 of us. My favorite was the pasta with prawns in spicy tomato sauce
The food is excellent, order 1 pizza and 1 lasagne. The waiteress is attentive and fast. The ambience is good as well.
We ordered the following dishes on a Saturday night dinner: Risotto Con Maiale with pork neck and mushroom, Pasta Al Basilico, Spaghetti Aglio E Olio, Pizza Roma & Penne in Carbonara sauce. The Risotto Con Maiale and Pizza Roma were outstanding - The Risotto was Al Dente and was rich enough without overwhelming, the Pizza Roma had a nice mix of 4 cheeses without being overly salty, and the crust was crunchy and paper thin. Now the down side: The Pasta Al Basilico came with a heap of ham and fettuchine, clearly the wrong order because the diner in our party of 5 wanted vegetarian, and the asparagus was missing. We didn't send it back, decided to try it. Dish was overall ok but the white sauce was simply too rich, you won't be able to eat anything else after the pasta. We were surprised to find lots of Capsicum and mushroom in the Spaghetti Aglio E Olio (not the favourite vegetables of diner who ordered the dish), usually that means just plain spaghetti in olive oil, garlic and chilli flakes. But it was our own fault as it was written in the menu. Needless to say the vegetables completely changed the taste profile of the Spaghetti Olio, making it slightly slimy instead of the crisp and clean taste of garlic and olive oil. Overall service was prompt and attentive, but they charge $1 for a cup of warm water. The pasta and risotto dishes are already highly prices at around $30 each, do you need to nickel and dime the customers like this?
First time eating at Madrinaa Italiano and I was very impressed with the standard of food served and service provided. Service staff were polite and attentive. Food was great as well. Will definitely be back.
Better & wider range of choices for Vegetarians No cross transfusion of smell from non-veg, quite palatable, good taste. Visited second time ... (first time with colleagues & second time with family). Quality is good, Price Is on the higher side.
Food was good but not cheap. Had the crab ravioli which was fantastic, pizza crust was thin and crispy, the Parma ham could have been sliced into halves so it would be easier to eat. The toppings were generous though. Would come back for the pizzas. The spaghetti bolognaise was average.
It was great to have a choice of gluten free options at a restaurant. My Daughter loved being able to choose 'anything she wanted'. They could make pizza, pasta and calamari, all with gluten free flour!
Overall, had a good experience. The service, food quality and ambience are good. We have a dinner party of four and we ordered lamb rack, tenderloin steak, pasta and pizza. We liked all of them.
