Delightful dinner at San Paolo Solarino. Great friendly service and beautiful food! Pre theatre dinner was really quick and reasonably priced.

I went here with work colleagues as part of an overnight stay in Melbourne. We were staying at the Novotel on Collins and this place was perfect as only a couple hundred metres away. We shared some of the tomato and goats cheese bruschetta to start with which was sensational. For mains I had a soft shell crab salad which... More

Had dinner here on a cold Thursday night. The mushroom bruschetta is a winner for my family, although the tomato one is first rate too. For mains we had gnocchi, and two different pasta dishes, spaghetti and penne. All dishes were very tasty and served hot. No room for dessert. Service was a bit spotty as it was quite busy,... More

My boyfriend and i went here for dinner on the labour day public holiday and we absolutely loved it. He ordered the penne with chorizo and i ordered oven baked gnocci. The most amazing meal we have probably ever had. The service was flawless, leaving us perfect time to decide on our order and bringing our drinks, portion sizes perfect,... More

This was my first time visiting Melbourne over new years and me and a friend were recommended this venue when at a bar up the road. We had coffee and cake which was so appetising! hit the spot after a day of sight seeing. I am glad to have found this place, not just for the food but for being... More

Was pleased to find a cafe open to have breakfast on Australia Day. Service was good and nice to be able to read the paper over a relaxed breakfast. Poached eggs on toast were poorly presented and tasted of vinegar. No garnish or cooking with love.

Found this through tripadvisor, and had a great New Year's eve dinner. The risotto was magnificent (and there was lots of it) and my wife was very excited about the soft cell crab salad. And our 5 year old enjoyed her spaghetti bolognese. Tiramisu was yummy, and it was enough for the three of us. Nice, calm and professional atmosphere.... More

Both my friends that I went here for dinner with use wheelchairs. The location was extremely convenient, just a short and easy work from the Novotel. The staff could not have been more friendly, genuine or accommodating - they were fabulous! We were given freshly baked bread on arrival with oil and balsamic and presented with a small but inviting... More

Stopped at this place as it was close to the hotel a work colleague was staying at and found a small but amazing menu that was reasonably priced, with quick service and really tasty. I ended up having a few meals there over the next couple of days and they were all great (spaghetti with anchovies and fennel breadcrumbs, a-flaming-mazing... More
