Great meal and staff

Was a busy night but they made room for us. We're on holiday and went because of the trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The meals were fantastic, great flavours and good size. Shared the gnocchi for a starter and then the fish, lasagne, and risotto along with a great red. Would... read more

The atmosphere and service were excellent. Only to be let down by the food. This was not top Italian cooking in our book. We will not be returning.

I just love this little hidden gem. Its produces consistently good italian food and is low key and unpretentious. My husband had the spaghetti marinara and thought it was the most delicious he had ever eaten and seeing he ALWAYS orders this wherever he goes this is saying something! Whenever in Melbourne I will seek Il Solito Posto out for... More

We had an enjoyable, delicious Italian dinner here. The hearty portions and the friendly, quick service added to the authentic feel. We were quite glad we decided on an early dinner, as throughout the evening there were a number of diners who were turned away from this popular local restaurant.

We love this restaurant and every time we dine we are impressed. We sat in the formal restaurant rather than the cafe style section. The service is second to none with staff that make your experience memorable. The 3 of us all had a pasta/ risotto dish each and we were all delighted. The truffle risotto is a must. The... More

I went here on a recommendation and was certainly not disappointed. It's a rustic Italian trattoria. We loved it. The restaurant manager never missed a beat. The waitress who looked after Us Recommended a great bottle of wine. The pasta was perfect, so was the pate. It will be my "go to" restaurant when I hit melbourne next. If you're... More

I have been to this restaurant many times, and it never disappoints. Occasionally we spot celebrities dining in the restaurant, including the Prime Minister. You should note that when you come in, on the right hand side there's the cafe which doesn't take bookings, and if you turn to the left, it's the restaurant which is fine dining. I highly... More

Great place for a lovely meal- staff are excellent; food and wine even better. Grab a table downstairs if you can to take you to a little restaurant in Tuscany somewhere.

We went with some family members based on the previous visit and we were not disappointed with the food, service or cosyness of the restaurant......it was busy on the Monday night we went....a testament to overall value and experience. We will visit next time we are in Melbourne.
