About the restaurant
Passion for food and love of all things Italian is what inspired Basil & Vine Café.
The Fargnoli family believe food is central to our Italian way of life and large family meals are customary in our household - Meals are relaxed affairs enjoying each other’s company and the sense of community.
Traditionally Italian dishes are made with simple ingredients that can be made or procured inexpensively such as pasta, bread, cheese, olive oil and tomatoes. Italian cuisine is all about using quality ingredients well and not so much about fancy cooking techniques.

Bocca is a special place - excellent food and excellent service. Noise levels inside can make it difficult to hear a conversation but outside, on a beautiful day or evening it is perfect! Wine list is a little pricy but a good selection to choose from. Overall it is a favourite and appears always to be a popular destination.

I arranged a table reservation for a work function, including myself and a group of my employees, three of whom have disabilities. Since my request was somewhat unusual, I preferred speaking to a person rather than booking online. Although it was challenging, I eventually managed to connect with someone on Friday afternoon. The person I spoke with was friendly and helpful. We scheduled dinner and a tour for 4:00. However, upon arrival, we were informed that the kitchen had closed at 3:00. Despite this setback, we managed to order large tasting plates, potatoes, and salad, which sufficed. It would have been preferable to have been informed about the kitchen's closure in advance. Nonetheless, the tour proved was excellent. Our young guide was friendly and very informative. Thank you.

At Mayfield, we celebrate fresh and local. We take great pride that the produce served at Mayfield is grown onsite in our garden and the remainder is handpicked from local partners. So as you wander through the Garden Centre in the morning, you may well be eating from its bounty a little later in the day. Because we grow our produce, our menu changes with the seasons. The kitchen garden team chat daily with our chefs to make plans and sow the seeds, and when those fruits and vegetables are at their seasonal best, that’s what you’ll find on our menu. You can also take a piece of Mayfield home with you. Choose from our very own delicious jams, chutneys and oils along with other local merchandise. If food is the way to someone’s heart, then you’re going to fall head-over-heels for our deliciousness. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it!

Everything we chose was very delicious and quality was excellent. Choices were abundant and did not dissapoint. Table service was lovely except it was marred by one of the reservation staff that literally told us to finish and leave when part of our meal that we ordered had not arrived yet. We did have a reservation and were not walk ins. Your staff should ask tables that have been there before us to leave as two tables were still there just sitting after their meal was finished. Is it because we were not middle-aged customers and it was easier and less confronting to get us going to accommodate your next reservation? We spent $160 for 3 people for yumcha lunch so it wasn't exactly we weren't spending any money. Pls improve your reservation and customer service skills.

Arrived on time, watched others arrive after us and their orders taken, 30 minutes later our order was taken, but only after I complained. Apology was minimal, just excuses about staff levels, but doesn’t explain how we could be overlooked so blatantly. We done there often and this has never happened before, so hopefully just a bad day that won’t be repeated.

Amazing food, best squid ever! Service great too. View of the beach couldn’t be better. Restaurant design very basic and bland, could do with some apposite soft furnishings, photos, pictures and other features. Maybe some flowers on the tables. Otherwise highly recommended.
