When in Melbourne you must visit Lygon Street for the italian experience and Cosentino hit the mark perfectly. We ate outside alfresco and had the perfect pasta. Staff where very friendly and attentive and the meal generous and well priced. What more can you ask. The street itself is famous for italian food and you simply can't go wrong. I... More

We were on a shopping trip to melbourne and landed up in the Italian district. We were swooned over to eat here with the promise of a free bottle of wine and some bruschetta :) Had a good, homely meal but nothing spectacular. Service very good though. Had an enjoyable meal.

Genuine, delicious Italian food! Five of us ordered five different dishes, including some of the menu specials and we were all astounded by the quality and taste of the food! They have a seafood dish (Scoglio I think it was called), which no other restaurant on the street has, and let me tell you, it is worth every penny! Hand... More

We are not fussy people but did not like this restaurant at all. The owner spends all of his time telling customers that the guy who owns the restaurant next door is not a real Italian. The waitresses were not trained and were not able to keep up even though there were few people in the restaurant. The food was... More

2 of us liked our meals and 2 disliked.... Wife and 1 son liked their pasta, second son had a junior sized spaghetti with meatballs that only had 4 very small meat balls in it. My pizza marinara was undercooked and the base was reminiscent of a poor frozen pizza Altogether very average - I should know better, it is... More

We walked past quite a few of the restaurants trying to decide which was the most suitable. What persuaded me to stop at this one was firstly the prices seemed reasonable & the owner was Italian. We ate here New Years eve & sat outside on the pavement which was very pleasant. Service was efficient. There were 4 in our... More

Even though it was really busy our waitress made time to check that we were happy for the whole time we were there. Our meals (oysters, antipasto and then pasta) came quickly and were delicious! This was the first time we had been to Cosentino but both my partner and I agreed this is our new favourite and we will... More

We walked along Lygon St. trying to decide where to eat and were encouraged by the young woman at the door to try this restaurant. She said all the sauces were home-made and fresh. We both had veal but chose different styles and the flavours in our sauces were very tasty. The service was really good and while most people... More
