we were charged $200 for a bottle of Pol Roger non vintage. This is 50 bucks more than I have paid for it anywhere. Come on guys, shame to spoil your wonderful place by taking the mickey.

We selected this restaurant for a special night out in Melbourne without the kids. From the moment we entered the restaurant we felt we were being looked after with staff that were friendly and happy to be working in this cosy environment. They were very attentive in topping up our wine glasses before they were empty and confidently offered suggestions... More

While I fully appreciate that there can be variations from service to service this was not good. I did not consider the expense of the meal was anyway justifiable for what I thought was a very middle road meal. The place was noisy , the staff were excellent. However not a visit I would repeat.

Extremely well prepared food for the discerning palate. Not so great if you are looking for a filling meal. We caught up for a short meal and ate in the basement (my guest tells me this is normally a 2 week wait list). Meal was very tasty however $18 for a glass of wine (though it was good) is little...

Had a delicious meal last night - stiuffed zucchini flowers were especially good. Service brilliant. Wines expensive, but there were some excellent ones for about $60 too. My one complaint is that there is no explanation about the way the restaurants are set up. - i.e. The cafeteria and the trattoria. The cafeteria is walk in with no bookings and... More

My friend brought me to Il Solito Posto for dinner before a theatre show. Everything was incredible. Great service, fresh food and a great atmosphere. We plan on coming back really soon!

This has to be one of my favorite restaurants in Melbourne, the hidden lane way location only adds to the appeal and romanticism. The bar seating is every bit as good as the lower level restaurant with staff that focus on your experience overall not just the meal. I am a huge fan of the ragu, but mostly select from... More

A fantastic find. Had dinner in the a la carte restaurant part of the establishment. It was heaving when we arrived at 8.00pm. We were greeted by the friendly manager and shown to our table where all night our waiter looked after us impeccably. The service and food was wonderful and the evening was probably the best during our 5... More

This restaurant is very busy because it's very good. The food is excellent but the price is a bit heavy. I go often and will continue to go again for lunch and dinner.
