Wonderful Sunday Lunch!

We went as a group of four for Sunday lunch over the weekend and we had a fantastic time. Great value for money and the gluten free pizza was one of the best pizzas I've ever had! Beautiful setting and fantastic service.

We didn't have a booking on Mother's Day lunch but they made space for our little party, we have a couple of dishes and a couple of cocktails. The staff we all very welcoming and friendly and the food was great. They also had the best gluten free pizzas EVER and boy have I tried a few. Will definately be returning.

Balboa Italian Overview

For a truly memorable Italian dining experience, enter Balboa Italian restaurant perched beside the Gold Coast Highway in the prominent suburb of Palm Beach. Guests are greeted by a towering red brick building, fitted out with charcoal black finishings, while inside modern luxe meets an industrial charm with a moody atmosphere created by hanging chandeliers, overflowing greenery, grand high ceilings, exposed metal beams, intimate nooks and private seating areas. An eclectic menu has been crafted from local sourcings, showcasing classic Italian Cheffing techniques and providing unique dishes, plated with flare to match an equally abundant wine and cocktail selection. Begin with an entrée of seared scallops, before the main affair of melt in your mouth beef cheek gnocchi with truffle oil.

Best Known For

Pappardelle al Ragu: pappardelle pasta, sweet spiced goat meat, Grana Padano and extra virgin olive oil.
