Pasini's, Bicheno Reviews
Ambience was good. Individual dinner dishes was not bad in terms of flavour but there were noticeable differences in serving sizes and portions. My husband's seafood fettuccine was missing a wedge of lemon which mine had. We noticed a gentleman on another table who had the same dish as ours which was considerably larger than ours. My mum's fish of the day dish was much larger than my daughter's. However both thought that the serving was on the small side even for diners with small appetites. The lamb salad had a nice dressing but the lamb was dry according to my son. He said that my home cooked lamb taste better. Portion size was considerably smaller than what we'd expect for dinner or for the price. Presentation overall was pretty good though. Waitress was attentive and kept asking us how our meal was. Well, now you know. 😉
It’s a nice little cafe and restaurant with a wide range of dishes. The coffee is just an average quality but the food is good with a reasonable price. Staff are nice and welcoming. Their service is a bit slow specially during the weekend. Recommended to dine if you are on the Tasman highway and need a short break. I’ve been there a week ago and I enjoyed the firewood oven baked pizza.
Good food here. Busy on weekends, but worth at least getting takeaway. Seafood fettuccine was excellent with fresh local seafood. A little expensive but a quality meal. Wood fire pizza was good to and not burnt. Worth trying and would go back when in bicheno again.
In a barely one-horse town, these guys make the most of the limited dinner opportunities available to visitors. The best I can say is that the food was at least fresh, served hot, and service was quick. The pizzas are uninspired and bland, the prawn pasta had a total of five prawns in it. The prices are that of a high quality restaurant in any capital city. Note that if you arrive without having followed the no less than five signs at the entrance saying bookings are strongly recommend (not visible anywhere online or while driving past), you will receive a glare and be directed to whatever table is available, or be given the option of take-away. Note again that it does get busy, I suspect because it's one of two or three places you can actually sit down for hot meal.
Absolutely fantastic! Hubby had the pulled pork pizza which he said was the best he has had. I had the seafood fettuccine - plenty of local seafood maybe a little too much pasta but still great!
