Ciao Papi | Italian time, not fare

I was really looking forward to some delicious Italian at Ciao Papi on Sunday with some fab views of the Brisbane River. The latter were abundant, but the former was not. We arrived at 2.40 – fairly late for lunch. Although there were plenty of staff, I had to signal one out to have a … Read more
