Hopelessly overcooked chicken, tasting of nothing but overpowering celery. Polenta also dominated by the taste of celery. When chicken falls off the tip of a knife with a light touch it IS overcooked.

I have been to Imonelli a few times and I always got everything above expectations. Best pizza in all of George, including Fancourt. I enjoyed today an authentic arrabiata - best I ever had in my.life and I have eaten Arrabiata all around the world....More

What a fantastic dinner we enjoyed at this restaurant nestled in George. The owners are so humble yet deserve more praise than we can state here. If one enjoys a hearty Italian meal this is the only plays for a decent Italian meal. Can't wait...More

I was surprisingly amazed at what this owner chef turns out solely in that kitchen. The selection of available pizza's & pasta's are the best in town. There's a decent variety to choose from & some delicate touches on the menu.

Average service, limited offerings, mediocre food, cannot make up it's mind whether it's a restaurant or coffee shop. although we were the only customers, took an age to be served. our first 2 choices were not available. just had a coffee, very good, and left.

Reviews were great, but severely disappointed in our lunch. The only wine by the glass was plonk, and they were out of mozzarella. We ordered the lasagna and spaghetti carbonara. The former was a good size, but tasted canned, the pasta so soft you couldn't...More

Authentic Italian trattoria styled restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinners. Authentic Italian trained chef makes tradition Italian cuisine like mamma does. Come try our Spaghetti Bolognese, beef Lasagna, Spinach and ricotta cannelloni which are all traditional dishes that will have you coming back for more... Our thin based pizza's are also a must. Our Deli is stocked with imported items to tempt you which are all used in our menu... We make fresh homemade ravioli which can be pre ordered for that special occasion
