We decided on this place on the spur of the moment when a nearby establishment made it clear they didn't value our custom. I and another of the party remembered had been here before, we just couldn't remember the name. They handled a walk in table of six early on Saturday night with no fuss or bother. The food was...

This place was recommended by our son, who is a regular visitor to Melbourne. Our hotel concierge had not heard of it, so had to find it, tucked away off COLLINS STREET. Very friendly reception even though we had not booked. Excellent food, brucchetta starter and Pasta excellent. Only downside ....toilet area was awful.

Not actually on Collins St but on George Pde just off Collins. Our family of 3 was greeted by friendly maitre d' and shown to our table in the cosy atmospheric downstairs library-like section. Dealing with the very helpful/very efficient waiter was a real pleasure. Very good lamb ragu, herb/ricotta gnocchi, red and white wine selection by the glass.

We are fortunate that we were taken to this great little restaurant by some Melbourne locals. What a gem! The food was amazing -- the oysters on the half-shell shared by all, my oxtail risotto with orange and sage (to die for) and the seafood linguine that several others in our party had, the vino and the port for dessert...

Sitting here I felt I had to let you know about the food...the service...the atmosphere that is Il Solito Posto! From the moment you walk through the door...The service is over and above amazing. The food is authentic Italian. Fresh. Seasonal. Delicious!

I have been eating at this restaurant for almost 20 years. This is a rare statement in such a competitive industry. The service and food has always been consistent; it is a hidden gem in a Melbourne laneway. If eating alone sit along the window and watch the passing pedestrian traffic above or come as a group and enjoy the... More

This quant restaurant is a gem! Right from the beginning to the end it was fantastic. We we greated with great gusto and welcomed like a lost family member. The oysters were fresh, succulent and crisp! The salad was esquisite and the main courses were flavourful and cooked to perfection. The ox-tail risotto was the best I have ever tasted... More

FIVE STARS! Just wish I'd found this place 2 years ago. This restaurant had everything I was looking for, away from the hustle and bustle of places like Chapel Street or Southbank. Tucked in a lane way and nestled down under street level giving it a cellar/den feeling. Immediately greeted by Steve the maître d', who is a fantastic host,... More

It's great to find a restaurant where top class food is matched with a relaxed, amiable atmosphere. There is a lot to be said for that pleasant, friendly hum that accompanies patrons who are enjoying excellent hand made pastas and a great wine list. My new favourite place to eat in Melbourne. Just be aware it's not actually on Collins... More

The pasta here is cooked consistently well, and the flavours always top-notch. It can get pricey if you get starters, main, a couple of sides to share, and have a glass or two of wine, but it's money well spent in taking that mid-week dullness away! Love their seafood linguine, and they always make a delicious vegetarian pasta, too -... More
