Good quality Italian

My wife and I have dined here a few times and the most recent visit was to celebrate my birthday. We started with the calamari with feta and tomato which i thought was the highlight dish of the night. I'd return here just for that. The Tasmanian oysters were also fresh and tasty. I ordered the eye... read more

I had the misfortune to be invited to this 'restaurant' (I use the term loosely) for a recent family event and it was a shocker. First we sat there for nearly an hour before we received a food menu. Then just about every drink order we had was messed up including my brother in law being given a VB that... More

The food here is amazing ! The wonton & ginger broth soup is to die for ! The seafood selection platter is amazing.. The service can be a bit slow, you can eat in a bistro or in te fine dining area. They serve food all day - I think they are only closed on Mondays.. Top notch fine dining

Was here for a birthday lunch celebration and I was not disappointed. The wagyu dumpling was so delicious! Service was prompt and the menu impressive. I'm surprised Va Tutto isn't the no. 1 restaurant in Ivanhoe! It should be!

We have eaten here a few times and the food is delicious. The restaurant is divided into a bistro and restaurant section and the bistro is much better. The food is cheaper and the atmosphere more comfortable. I'm surprised the restaurant is the more expensive section as I prefer the menu on the bistro.

This has been a consistently good restaurant since inception almost 10 year ago. Originally from Zio's in East Melbourne, the owners, Paul and Myrto have continued to enhance the dining experience. Great selection on the menu and extensive wine list. Not a bad meal on the menu. This time for me was the pork sausage and fennel risotto for an... More

Went for dinner with friends for a catch up. Only went to this restaurant on their recommendation. I'd heard mixed things about Va Tutto but was open minded. The front of house manager/owner was the rudest person I've come across. Full of her own self importance, condescending and just plain rude, rude, rude! The food was okay - duck 4... More

I've dined there many times for lunch with clients and also for celebratory functions. They have always had excellent service and a great wine cellar. The food is always well presented and sufficient.

Last night we dined at Va Tutto restaurant for the first time with our friends. It was a very disappointing experience. Apart from our company there was little to praise. The owner/waitress was extremely disinterested and non engaging in explaining the menu whilst taking our order, and even then, she didn't get it right!! The food itself was rather ordinary... More
