After a major redesign, the former site of Beaches Restaurant and most recently, Billy's, will take on yet another title – La Repubblica. Owners Dan Gelati and Joseph Nader have filled the space with dark timbers and chandeliers, creating a very sophisticated and classy vibe. Functioning as a cafe by day for Balmoral Beach locals, La Repubbica will turn into a much-needed wine bar by night.

We had a wonderful time at La Repubblica this evening. Beautiful food, attentive staff and a lovely location. I would highly recommend La Repubblica to anyone.

What a place, and the food exceptional. You just love to finish the generous portion served and get another. The starter sharing plates were awesome. The place was packed on Saturday night and the service was good. A very enjoyable and relaxed evening. Will definitely be going again, but will book in advance.

I visited La Repubblica for the first time on Saturday for brunch as it looked good on the outside. Unfortunately the service was very rude, and this was not from a particular individual as it seemed to be the common theme and I felt like I was not welcome. I will not be back.

Two of us dined at La Repubblica last night for the first time. The food was delicious and the service prompt and friendly. I was pleasantly surprised to see the gluten free choices clearly marked on the menu and enjoyed both my "GF" dishes immensely. A good selection of wines and of course a superb location will have us returning to dine here in the near future and I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant for an enjoyable evening meal.

A tastefully decorated, modern Italian cafe and restaurant by day and a great place with the right ambience for relaxing in the evening right by beautiful Balmoral Beach, over a fabulous dinner with family or friends. The menu is fresh, creative, generous & you can taste the freshness of the produce. The quality of the ingredients really come through with every bite. To compliment your meal, enjoy either a fabulous glass of wine from a well thought out wine selection or a tasty and generous cocktail. The management are friendly, personable and value their patrons and the staff are hardworking and attentive without being intrusive. I have certainly appreciated a consistent and thoughtful service over the many times I have been there since its inception. I will continue to introduce my friends and family to La Repubblica and trust that they will enjoy it as much as I do. Balmoral needed a La Repubblica and it fits in beautifully to its surrounds.

I would like to say a big 'Thank You' to all the staff at La Repubblica. I have been coming to your restaurant for several months now and even though I am always so grateful for the amazing service and the genuine caring, I often forget to really express my gratitude. So, today I want to do that. I have travelled to almost every country on the planet, have met and experienced the some of the finest dinning and experienced some wonderful service, I don't think I have ever experienced such genuine warmth and fabulous service as in your establishment. I love the food particularly the fabulous PITZA and of course the coffee is second to none. Blessings on you all, it is a true joy to visit you. Elizabeth
