Were recommended this place last time we were in Melbourne and loved it. Wanted to go again but couldn't remember its name so off we went on a walkabout. Took a bit of finding because we thought it was on Little Flinders Street but eventually got there. Not disappointed at all, the food and service was just as good as... More

Came to Il solito posto for a pre theatre dinner on a friday. Had booked an early table in the downstairs restaurant. The decor of this place is beautiful!! Makes for a really nice quiet dinner, not too crowded. The service was awesome and very efficient and the food (we both had the pasta dishes) were superb! i couldn't recommend... More

Food is great but I felt we were neglected. Dinner here was lovely but food was awfully slow and we left before dessert made it to the table. We decided to give it another go because of the wonderful reviews. Same deal, tables next to us had their meals 20 mins before we did and we were seated long before... More

A favourite CBD lunch or dinner option, Il Solito Posto offers excellent food, great service and a solid range of wines. Hidden away down the side alley, it's always a pleasure to steal away a couple of hours at Il Solito Posto for either work or play!

We have been here a few times over the years, and its good in regards to the friendly staff & cozy atmosphere, and from previous visits I can recommend the coffee & breakfast but not for an evening meal. The pasta was bad, very very dry, no flavour, semi cold, not great Italian food. I would even question if the... More

We booked this restaurant 6 weeks in advance and I rang to confirm our booking an hour before as well. When we turned up the front of house lady must be having a BAD day. She kind of crossed our name off and then walked off so we thought we should follow her. She took us downstairs to the dining... More

A lovely evening meal with two of my sons and the girlfriend of one. Two of us shared the antipasto mix of land and sea to start whilst the others had the terrine and the grilled prawns. The only slight disappointment was the 'land and sea' which seemed to lack something to hit the taste buds. My duck risotto was... More
