Becoming a regular here and never been disappointed. Arrive at 6pm if you don't have a booking. Authentic flavours and varying specials keep this place on my top 5 to visit in Melbourne

Ate here on a Tuesday night with a work colleague / client. Whilst there was nothing to fault, it didn't impress me as I thought it might. Service was impeccable, very knowledgeable wait staff. The food was good, nothing to rave about, solid Italian food. We all had oysters to start and they were small and didn't taste as fresh... More

Our first visit here was for coffee, which was quite good and have been back regularly since. However, we finally made it there for dinner and loved it. Simple food done very well, which is Italian food. We both had seafood pasta and would go back again and take others to spread the love. Go and enjoy.

Found the restaurant on Trip Advisor and went 3 times over 3 days. Service was pleasent and attentive. Atmosphere is lively, loud in a good way. The food was excellent. Oysters fresh. Pork bolognese bright and not laden with cream as it is many places. Squid ink linguine with sautéed calamari, cherry tomatoes, basil, and touch of chile was perfect.... More

Dinner with a group of girl friends, some of whom are foodies - and we were all very happy. The meal was flavoursome and the service great.

We were recommended to go to this Italian restaurant and we were not let down. It is rare these days that you can actually experience something that is as close to authentic food in another country. The pasta was perfectly cooked aldente and the flavour of the dishes were outstanding. We chose to sit in the restaurant area which was... More

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...
