A variety of imaginative salads are also available and include the delicious halloumi, spinach, dates and avo salad. Steaks, burgers, wraps and gourmet sarmies with tons of fillings and toppings have earned their place on the menu as well.
A house speciality is Nonna's Meat Balls, slow cooked in a chunky tomato sauce topped with fresh basil and parmesan shavings.
Homemade cakes and decadent desserts add a wicked touch to your meal and thee are best accompanied by a glass of bubbly.
