This cafe is filled with character, there are a lot of references to italian cafe culture. The carrot cakes are the yummiest I have ever had. The coffee is very smooth with refreshing aroma. A lot of times you will see a Vespa standing outside the cafe. The location is also very convenient, close to major shopping malls, and walking... More

The service was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Had a great lunch time meal the food was excellent and the wine even better (even if it was a bit pricey). Excellent coffee. Great ambience tucked away in a little arcade on Little Collins St. Will certainly go back there and recommend it to all.

Popped in for a coffee & friand on a shopping day in Melbourne. Service was fast and friendly, coffee is great and the friand was fresh & tasty!! There's a fab window sets for people watching. I've been here for breakfast a few times too, it's always good.

I've always loved the look of this café and have had quite a few light meals and coffees there, usually at lunch time or during the afternoon. It can be hard to get a seat, and people are squeezed into small spaces, but the atmosphere remains upbeat. However my last visit was disappointing - and I was embarrassed as I'd... More

I stumbled into this caffe in Little Collins St after a hard morning of shopping and found the friendliness of the staff and cozy atmosphere of the café really inviting. The hot veggie soup and coffee hit the spot. When the waiter saw me taking a photo of his red Vespa outside the shop, he took my camera and took... More

First I test the coffee, then I order the food. 10/10 on both fronts. The owner recommended the Italiano Breakfast which was great and once again in my 30 year marriage, my wife boasted that she found this cafe on a previous trip to Melbourne. You know the drill guys, their always right no matter what. I left 4 Piccolo's... More
