Breakfast

Fabulous champagne breakfast with chilli scrambled eggs. Warm cozy atmosphere. Tables out the front have a great street traffic view but aren't very sheltered. Inside is best.

Poor service, were rude and unhelpful! Politely asked to split the bill and got a negative response with 'work it out yourself'. Not returning.

Found this liitle paradise by just walking past and wanting to find a nice small restaurant that didnt have all the bustling of the nearby Flinders Lane Melbourne. We were greeted and promptly sat to our table. Menu was extent and very different. Loved the wine listing which was also large considering the size of this lovely restaurant. Almost forgot... More

We booked a pre theatre dinner at La Citta and had a wonderful meal. The venue has an extensive beverage list and the menu offers a small but excellent selections of options. While the restaurant has an Italian theme it has a range of tapas options and my steak was perfectly cooked. We were so impressed with our meal that... More

La Citta is located a little bit closer to Flinders Street than the other restaurants in very busy Degraves Street and it makes for a far more spacious and enjoyable dinning experience. The food is reasonably priced and the ribs entrée was succulent. Complimentary breads are supplied. Both my Wife (Pasta Ragout) and my Meal (Pasta Seafood) were delicious and... More

We tend to pop into La Citta at least once on all of our trips to Melbourne. It is consistent and their strong hot coffee is very welcome after the red-eye flight I tend to book (never learning my lesson). It is also generally easy to get into without reservation for breakfast during the week. The eggs benedict are consistently... More

The food here is absolutely delicious. You could pick your meal blindfolded and it would be fantastic, gnocchi or the lamb being my favorite. Staff are all lovely, friendly, professional and know their stuff. I love this place so much and can't wait to be back!
