Yes... we do now split the bill for groups 🎉

We know this is one of the biggest questions you all ask... Can we split the bill?

Well, until now we have been pretty strict at saying no. Why? Well it's complicated... But the most exciting thing is that this is about to change, thanks to groupee. There are loads of reasons why we, and so many other restaurants have been saying no splitting he bills in the past, but that's about to change!

So we know its frustrating when 25 of you finish, no one has cash and you need to either run to the nearest ATM or transfer to your mate while he puts it on his card.  You should be heading to another bar and not dealing with this!

So why cant we, and why do we do this to you? 

We can only talk from our oint of veiw, but this is a sydney wide issue. No on lets you split bills, and it does suck, but its gonna be better, we promise 

We offer exceptional value in our offering, and with that means that we dont have a door person standing at the door with little else to do but welcome guests and print bills. and thus it is our waitsaff who run bills, and take payments. Its just not possible to take them away from serving tables for such a long time to split a bill a million times ( 😡) Each card transaction takes up to 1 minute, not even allowing for people unsure of the account, or getting the pin wrong, or not having money in the account and needing to transfer. Multiply this for 25 and thats nearly half and hour to process 1 bill. We seat 75 people, in one siting. So you see where im going. 

But... this is the past, let us focus on the future. This is the exciting bit.  

Did you know there is an app out there which lets you and your mates not only split the bills, but take payments effortlessley and deals direct with the restaurant meaning if you all use groupee no transaction takes place and it can take just one minute for 25 people to split the bill. .  Means you guys can work it all out once you have your bill, get the staff to simply sign off the transaction with one simple code and you are one your way!

We love the idea of groupee and you can use it to pay your  way whether you are a couple of mates or a party of 48! It's another way to make Sydney dining even more accessible. 

Welcome to 2017! 🎉 🎊 🍕 🍴

Happy New Year! We hope you had an enjoyable break over the festive period, or if you are a visitor, we hope are enjoying some time in our beautiful city of Sydney! 

What a year 2016 was! We are so proud of our little restaurant and can't wait to see what 2017 will bring as we continue to grow!

2016 saw us welcome more and more people through our door each and every week, and deliver thousands of meals direct to you. Without you, this would of course not be possible, and we thank you for your continued support. Not only have thousands visited every month, but so many of you write amazing reviews on Tripadvisor, Zomato and Google which continue to showcase our restaurant to the world!

Because of these amazing reviews, we received a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence in mid 2016.  These are given to only the best restaurants with consistently high reviews on TripAdvisor. We are currently in the top 100 restaurants in Sydney. So thanks 😃

The past year also saw huge shake up in food delivery which has been massive for us. We now deliver hundreds of meals a week to locals and visitors through partners like UberEats, Foodora and Deliveroo, which was previously not possible. Of course,  our locals can continue to pick up direct from us, receiving a 15% discount, plus you also get to say HI!

 In 2017 we will continue to add even more delicious Italian inspired takeout options to keep you fed while unable to visit the restaurant. Keep and eye on our takeout options on our website for an updated menu. 

2016 saw us add new group menus for our dine-in guests perfect for that extra special occasion and our group space has been packed, so we advise booking in early to avoid disappointment. 

In 2017 we will continue to grow our private dining options which have already been popular in 2016.  Our awesome concrete slab dining table is now available weekend lunches for private parties, seating up to 28 people. It's the perfect space for a big get-together with friends and family.

2017 will also bring an expansion to our offsite options, serving you when you can't come to us. We will be adding to our catering options throughout the year, which are already available for office catering and large parties. We plan to roll this our further to local businesses, to keep you fed throughout the day (or night!). From our delicious Pizzas and pasta, through to delicious desserts, sides and salads.  If you would like more info don't hesitate to get in touch. 

Once again, thanks for a great 2016 and we look forward to welcoming you through the door in 2017. 

From all the team, Happy New Year!
