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.

These guys know how to make a good coffee and I like a good coffee. Food is good in the casual eating area (they also have a la carte - but I did not go there) and quite generous. Not a cheap eat but you can't complain about the quality of the food.

I was here for breakfast, they do a great coffee here. I had the scrambled eggs, little dry, quantity not quality. Next time I will go for the poached eggs. Grain Toast was really good. I love the atmosphere of this cafe and because of this I will go back.

A group of friends shared a very enjoyable Saturday dinner here. The place exudes a bustling classic Italian atmosphere - warm, friendly, noisy and fun - our waitress was patient and had a sense of humour. The food was fairly consistent and the portions were large, however I wouldn't give it an excellent rating. Our tagliatelli special with a butter... More

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!!

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!
