I certainly wouldn't say the best Italian in the city but certainly still worth the visit! They change the menu every week, so always something new and exciting. A nice little favourite. Great service and good atmosphere!

I had a lunch time breakfast here; poached eggs, sourdough, with grilled mushrooms, tomato and spinach. The eggs were perfectly shaped and cooked with a good runny yoke. At under $17 I was pretty happy with that. I would probably return for dinner and try it out.

We really enjoyed our meal at Solarino. We were using a Deals.com.au voucher, which gave us a glass of wine each, a shared antipasti, a pasta main each, and a shared dessert. It was great value, but prices at the restaurant were pretty reasonable anyway. We were given Italian-style bread and olive oil with balsamic vinegar to eat while we... More

Amazing gnocchi - so hard to find these days. Chef made a custom chicken risotto for my hubby. Excellent food and excellent service.

Stayed in hotel Causeway and this little cafe restaurant is just next to it. Good coffee and hot chocolate, delicious desserts and dinner was great. Service was good and portion size are quite big. Delicious food and definitely one of my favourite Italian restaurants.

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
