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.

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
