The food here is great (disclosure: it's so good we are repeat customers). This time we both ordered the lamb main which was tasty and filling - one of us had run for hours that day, and the other had been building a fence, and we both came away full. Our waitress was lovely and we were impressed by how quickly our food came out (especially since we were so hungry).

The four of us enjoyed a wonderful meal. The service was good, with a nice selection of Italian wines. Delicious starters; the fillet steak cooked to perfection and the tiramisu is always amazing. thanks

Our first foray into First Table and we definitely would give Casa Nostra the thumbs up!
This very busy Restaurant exceeded our expectations for many reasons but certainly it had a lovely atmosphere which suited its neighbourhood location.
The menu was comprehensive and certainly had something for everyone. The portions were very generous, tasty and well presented.
The service was prompt and friendly and the bill was very digestible at $66 for two. I can’t wait to try First Table again!

Dined here recently and to be honest not very impressed.
Crumbed Veal was tasteless and tough not what was expected.
Chicken pamagiano also very tough just didn't seem to taste that good.
Dish sizes were huge,really huge and we could not eat very much because of the above.
Probably the worst food we have had since using First Table but if you want Huge Plates of average food go for it.
Maybe the Pasta dishes are okay.
We certainly won't

Excellent service, attended to very quickly. We ordered the calamari to start with, was lovely and fresh. Shared the lasagne and pumpkin ravioli, both delicious, would order again. For dessert we shared the tiramisu (amazing) and the lemon tart. We didn't really need the 2nd dessert as the amount of food for two was adequate. Will definitely be going back again to try the other dishes.

If you want a truly delicious and authentic Italian Pizza then this is the place to go. The pizza base is so light and the toppings delicious. I had the one with smoked salmon. Yum! This restaurant is so hospitable you feel like you are a very special guest in the owners own home. Great for a couple having an evening out or for a family enjoying a meal together. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Fantastic food, very generous portion size as well. My girlfriend and I got a main each and a pasta to split and we over estimated the food required. Our mains were plenty, in fact, I'm eating the pasta now for lunch before I spend this beautiful day inside playing video games with friends :)

The restaurant was impressively busy and buzzy. My giant pizza was very generously topped, and my friend was very happy with her ravioli. Great dinner thank you - see you soon.
