Every time i am in Melbourne, this is where i eat. Il solito is best italian i have ever eaten and cannot recommend it enough. I like to eat in the cafe area because the meatballs and polenta are my favourite dish - the only downside is you cant book a table in the cafe. I have always been lucky... More

We dined here as a couple on a busy Saturday night. The service was friendly and efficient. We were advised on wines by our waitress with great success! To our surprise were able to order from both menus without an issue. We had mussels and chicken salad for entrees and seafood pasta and veal ragu for mains. The food was... More

Took a chance on getting a table without booking and were lucky enough to find one. It was very busy and we ended up in the a-la-carte dining area, although there is a 'bar' area which is less formal, however the atmosphere in both is great. Right from the start the waiting staff made us very welcome and couldn't have... More

Yum yum yum. Tasty Italian food served in a great environment. We had antipasto, soup and various pastas with a nice selection of beer and wine. Small tables enabled us to hear each other's conversation in a noisy, happy place. Delicious.

Had one if the best meals in Melbourne here early September and have since recommended it to all out friends. Great food and absolutely awesome service. Our waiter not only knew the menu backwards but also the wine list. Recommended a fantastic bottle of Italian red that went with our meals perfectly. Atmosphere, food, wine, staff personality - this has... More

I was well placed to watch the kitchen staff on the night that 8 of us dined here for dinner. I was distracted more than once during the evening by the constant efficient movement of staff in & out of the kitchen, as they balanced outgoing meals & wine & incoming dishes from the tables ready for washing. I noticed... More

We were fortunate enough to stumble across this place during a visit to Melbourne. All we can say is wow - the service was impeccable, it had a warm, cosy atmosphere, the wine was great and the food was delicious. We left feeling full and very happy.

I was fortunate enough that a good friend took me to Il Solito Posto about two years back and I came away making sure I had the name and location of the restaurant because it's the type of place you want to head back to. There are two sections to the restaurant, a floor level bar area, which is nice,... More

It a good stable for food, relaxed conversation with a cosy ambience. The Italian food is heart warming & well priced. I prefer it for lunch, but have enjoyed many dinners over the years as well.
