I say lost purely because a section of the shopping centre has been torn down and replaced by a tall building which abuts Wanneroo Road. It’s so close to the edge its alarming. It doesn’t really matter what it’s going to house, all that is concerning is a nice shopping centre is now aesthetically unpleasant.

The venue is fully licensed and there is a fabulous dessert cabinet. There is also a wide variety of pasta dishes to eat in or take away.

Opted for a take home spinach and ricotta ravioli and while the ravioli was actually very appealing, the sauce was overpowering. The sauce had pesto, red peppers, sun dried tomatoes and a couple of other things. Way too rich for my palate and I decided to ask for the dish next time with sauce on the side. Very Harry Met Sally.

Visually, the view from my table was of an aisle in a mall with light grey walls and semi colourful shop fronts. And, that construction which blocked out the sun a bit. Of course, that will change.

So, the venue itself is well thought out and has a very comfortable feel to it. Plus, the bonus of being able to enjoy a glass of wine with your lunch or dinner.
