Poor service, even worse food

We went after reading many positive reviews and I cannot believe that I was in the same restaurant as those other reviewers! The service was very poor due to a lack of waiting staff. There were only two of them and it was nearly full on the Saturday night that we were there. The more experienced... read more

Rustic yet elegant. Quiet so you can have a conversation owing to carpet on floor and generous tables spread out setting. I love the crumbed barramundi. The lamb lasagna is something of an institution apparently. Service slick and friendly.

It has been a couple of years since I was here, great to see things have not changed. Food awesome, so too is the service. Not a loud hustle and bustle restaurant, a nice well priced homestyle italian restaurant. It is worth the extra few yards to find this place. Never ordered lasagne in a restaurant before, but it is... More

We had a very nice and romantic dinner at this restaurant. The decor was beautiful and the atmosphere quite and intimate. The location is a little off the beaten track but worth hunting down. The staff were very attentive and the food was great. Would highly recommend it.

Located on a quiet cobblestone lane, it is a quiet, quaint Italian restaurant. The service was friendly and professional, relaxed and not rushed - such a nice change these days. We were very impressed with the high quality of the food - delicious. We can't fault our dining experience and will definitely be returning next time we are in melbourne.

My daughter and I love this place. She said it's her favourite lasagne ever - and she grew up loving her lasagne. The team are great, the wine is delicious and the atmosphere is cozy. They remembered me from months ago and welcomed me back - I was so surprised and the chef said simply that he remembers his customers.... More

we found the restaurant after a little search. It's well,worth hunting down if you are in central Melbourne. The food is fresh and homemade. Try the mixed antipasti which has a varied choice of fish-salmon.barramundi--and tasty smoked ham,salami,lamb. The pappardelle with beef was fresh and tasty,the wine was smooth and reasonably priced. As others have said it is a good... More
