One of my best restaurant experiences here in Melbourne. Was with two other friends. We all agreed everything was fantastic. We had the oysters and bruschetta accompanied by a Chardonnay. Then onto the mains I had the Barramundi fish crusted on top and topped with a lemon asparagus potato with a light salsa. Yum. My friends had the duck risotto... More

I had lunch today at Il Solito Posto. Always reliable, the dish I had today was so delicious I was very tempted to go back for dinner. Porcini tagliatelle with broad beans, asparagus, olive oil. Yum, yum, yum! Good service as always.

After trying to get a feed at chin chin, with a one hour wait time at 8.30, we headed up the nearby lane to il solito posto. There are two main sections of the restaurant - the front a more fine dining experience, and the back part offering a small menu of predominately pasta dishes. We sat in the back... More

Very much enjoyed the meal here - only thing which let us down a little was some help with the wine selection. Not knowing whihch vintage in which area was good within the various Appelations in Italy made it hard for us to choose - as such went for a good Australian choice we knew had a good year. Apart...

We were visiting Melbourne for a few days and was recommended this restaurant. We didn't have a booking but didn't have to wait too long for a table (2 of us), it was mid week. It is a very busy restaurant and with lots of people queuing inside the door for a table. Our meal was ok not as good... More

We were in Melbourne for Cup week 2014. Restaurants were at full capacity. We had a table of 4 booked in. The restaurant has a great ambience. We sat downstairs. Staff were very professional and friendly. We had a mixture of mains at our table, from pasta, rissotto, pork cutlet, and the beef mignon. Fabulous presentation and flavours. I would... More

This Italian favourite is where we take interstate and overseas guests for it's impeccable food and laneway location, but our last visit was just off the pace. Still worth the trip for the ambiance, fantastic wine selection and top class service, but the food was very good without being great. The scallop entrée on cauliflower puree was divine, as were...

Arrived with family (including two under 12) without a booking on a Tuesday night without a booking. No problem (although the placed filled quickly from 6.30 onwards). Fussy children loved the entree (calamari) and ragout dishes. Fish was great. The recommended wine was also good. Not inexpensive but a great meal at a reasonable price. Will return.

First visit and I've come straight out to write my review. The service was amazing from the second we walked in. Nothing was a problem. You could really see how amazing the culture was in this place. The food was beyond amazing. There was not a single thing I could fault. I would order the same again and again and... More

It is an informal place, but all the details are carefully chosen and well mantained. The service is extremely good, with very kind waiters. The menu offers a few dishes for each section of the meal: starters, primi and secondi, all very attractive. I got a good plate of spaghetti and impepata di cozze. Very tasty, silghtly changed to the... More
