    We were recommended by friends. And what an absolute gem the Postmistriss is. Great for Sunday lunch. The service was fast and friendly. Food was full of flavour with portion size just right. This will become our new local.

    Food was absolutely delicious. So fresh and tasty. Ricotta gnocchi was so light, the lasagna was so tasty and the service was outstanding by Reece.

    The ambience was good; tables well-spaced (not too close together). Staff were super attentive, bordering on overzealous. Within 10 minutes of taking our seats, two different waitresses approached us multiple times seeking to take our food order before we'd had time to look at the menu. The Affettati (selection of cured meats for 2) was a generous serving, and when paired with a garlic foccacce, satisfied our party of 4 as a starter. Three of the main dishes (Agnello, Pescatora and Lasagne special) were excellent, however, the Pesce in Umido was overcooked. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our dinner and would not hesitate to return.

    Great food and service as usual. Amazed, but happy, they could keep up this standard on an obviously ultra busy Fathers Day. Staff must have been exhausted, but did us proud.

    Second time at this place. Food was great. Service was attentive despite how busy the place was. Was a little loud but shows how popular the restaurant gets. Won’t hesitate to return again.

    A very cool place, nice ambience. Pasta was fresh and a generous size portion, though meal could have been hotter. Staff were friendly, though we had to wave them down a number of times to get more drinks etc.

    We've loved the Postmistress and this time their usual standard of excellence was not met. We arrived at 530pm and mentioned up front we needed to be done by 645pm The entree was delicious - we ordered our usual rosemary salt pizza and the kingfish ceviche to share. For our Main we chose the FlatHead tails and the Risotto special for me. Sadly the special I ordered was not available - we were dining at 6pm so strange there wasn't any left. Perhaps our waiter didn't know what the special was. I also then ordered the FlatHead tails. Our mains arrived and we commented to each other - 'if that's a flathead tail - the flathead must be gargantuan. Being pressed for time we started out meal of Barramundi. Neither of us enjoyed it but by the time the waiter apologised for giving us the wrong meals we had no time to send it back and wait for flathead tails. The cocktails are delightful but a better choice of gin would make a martini better! Next time I'll remember to ask for no maraschino cherries in my whiskey sour but that's on me! Main criticism - you're only as good as your worst experience - we're trying to forget this one.
