Very good Italian Cooking

We dined at the Grill for its more extensive and varied menu than Upstairs and thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant was busy with all tables full and several turning over customers during our 2 hour dinner. The lighting and atmosphere is perfect and could be anywhere in the world, the staff... read more

We were a table of 4 and the food was ok, the service was ok, but for $1,000 we expected a little better than ok. It is a nice room but nothing wowed any of us. Everything was done just to alevel and if the Price was halved it would have been about right. For a special occasion it was... More

Special Saturday night Dinner with Family while visiting Melbourne. Preferring the Grill for its extensive menu to accommodate the most fussy of 'eaters' Enjoyed the Scotch Fillet - Amazing, The Wait staff are always incredible, our French waiter even excused my "arrogant french" comment after he said he could really only recommend French wine but found something for us (will...

You will love the food here! Our visits to Melbourne now include, of course, visits to Grossi Florentino. How I wish for a GF of our own in Auckland! Tonight Peter had the 250g eye fillet steak, grilled, with a very good cole slaw and a couple of sauces from a choice of six. I had the Testaroli al pesto.... More

My husband took me here for my birthday and this was definitely worth it! We tried the five course menu but there was so much more to it. Amazing selection of wine and 5 star service. Ambience and atmosphere was just brilliant! Would definitely recommend for a special occasion.

The service was spectacular and the atmosphere was something special. Each course I was saying "now this is my favorite so far". We will definitily go back... More

Imagine going to a real restaurant where you don't share tables, you don't share food and you don't fish your cutlery out of a wooden box! This restaurant is a Melbourne institution and where I probably went for the first time more than 40 years ago. Here it is today under the direction of Guy Grossi, beautiful appointments from the...

I chose Upstairs very deliberately for a 'couple of times a year' long lunch with a friend, it is a space that never fails to inspire with a wonderful menu, impressive and extensive wine list and I always am well looked after there. We chose the Gran Tour degustation menu which started with two amuse-bouche; a delicious little arancini ball... More
