Great place for some lazy morning breakfast, great view of Balmoral Beach, nice open feeling. Not a big place but cosy and airy and very bright. Food is not too bad, although the portion size can be improved

Lovely staff. Food well presented and really yummy (absolutely loved the mushroom risotto)!! Lovely view of the beach too without the crowds.

The food & atmosphere are great but definitely topped by the super friendly service from Francesco Fernanda and the rest of the team.

great spot, however the barista/owner always seems a little grumpy... He needs to lighten up, and stop relying on his staff lighten the mood. It is his business, he ought to be more engaged...is my observation.

Pleasant meal. Food was generous in proportions, though I wouldn’t call it superb. Wine list was a bit ordinary and it is a shame they don’t allow BYO. Quite good value overall as dinner for two including bottle of wine was only $98.

Genuine Italian Restaurant. Wonderful location and glorious selection of starters and mains. La Mozzarella Di Bufala had a superb mouth-feel taking me back to Italy immediately. My wife's Mussels dish was 'perfecto'., just the right balance of sugo (tomato sauce/base) and chili, made more interesting that the heat arrives a minute later!! Service very good.

Even though I was dining alone the experience was great and the manager and staff made me feel very welcome. A real personal touch is that the food is brought to the table by a very friendly chef. I'll be back!

The owner left the front upstairs tables vacant all night which was a shame to be sat at the back and not to enjoy the view on a lovely evening.

I have taken 3 groups of friends and family, one of whom is wheelchair bound. We love sitting outside on pavement and enjoying the natural evening sounds of birds and outside life. Food and service is excellent.

Enjoyed a lovely Saturday afternoon at La Repubblica with friends. The salads and risotto were delicious. The chocolate mousse cake was rich but light. A light breeze kept us cool as we chatted and people watched. Nice vibe. Will go back for coffee and biscotti during the week.

About La Repubblica on Balmoral Beach

Fun in the sun Balmoral Beach might not be quite the Amalfi coast of Italy – but it is almost as good, especially when you can go for a post-swim bite to each at La Repubblica. This charming little Italian eatery is located just across the street from the water, so the views are spectacular, especially if you manage to snag one of the coveted tables outside. It is open from 7am until late at night, so it is up to you whether you want to stop in for a coffee and slice of cake, or if you are going for something more filling such as the ever-popular spaghetti marinara or the mushroom pizza. Or perhaps try the antipasto for two, washed down with a crisp bottle of chilled rose wine? It might not be the Amalfi coast, but it is definitely the next best thing – and many locals would argue it is even better. Best Dish: Sicilian tuna
