This was a return visit and was just as good as on the previous occasions! The calamari fritto starters and squid ink pasta marinara as mains were absolutely delicious accompanied by a great Pinot Grigiot. This restaurant is very handily located in Nicholson Street on the way out of the city and is an absolute treat! The ambience is unpretentious... More

We celebrated our son-in-laws' birthday on a recent trip to Melbourne, and chose this place based on trip advisor reviews. I made our booking via email, and secured a table for six very easily. A bit of a walk from the cbd, but an easy taxi ride. The food was wonderful with a fabulous range of specials. Would highly recommend... More

A gorgeous authentic Italian restaurant away from the hustle and bustle of Lygon St. All meals were perfect, taste was sensational. It has such a warm & inviting ambiance with friendly and efficient service. Will and have recommend to everyone. This is a must go to restaurant.

It puzzles me when a restaurant tries to save on pasta noodle ingredient of a dish. It is not the expensive ingredient...put a bit more on...make the people happy...instead of insulting them with a few strands of pasta at such prices. Yes, the flavours are excellent and the main dishes presented at a better price to volume ratio however, being... More

We went for dinner with an overseas visitor and were very impressed. The specialty of the house is the Goat slow roasted and absolutely delicious. we also had their Chestnut pasta with a beef sauce instead of the one on the menu. The gentleman who served us, probably the owner was so helpful and didn't mind changing the sauce for... More

Take the road less travelled looking for a great Italian restaurant in Melbourne and leave Lygon Street behind. I'm sure there are many fabulous eateries there but this one is special...and not on 'the strip'. We arrived mid week without a booking and were seated immediately. The menu is small but focuses on quality with enough variety of choice to... More
