Just a couple or small group, great food, excellent service. If you are serious about good classic food and love Italian then relish the experience. Has dedicated clientele.

Having eaten here a fifty times over 20 years this place is always good. I have never had a dodgy dish and the pasta is great. The wine list is merely average and has never been wonderful. It could do with a revamp, with something other than the usual suspects. The rustic feel of this cellar style trattoria is appealing.... More

My partner and I went into the city for dinner on a Saturday night. It was around 7ish. We tried to obtain a table at Chin Chin and Meatballs but were turned off by the minimum 90 minute waits and a lack of feeling wanted. We ventured on to Il Solito Posto - a placed we had been meaning to... More

Menu was not overly long list of options, but food was generous and good quality Italian fare. It got very noisy (with wooden floors and low ceiling) as more people arrived and the restaurant filled.

This is now the second time I have been to Il Solito Posto when travelling to Melbourne. It is a great little restaurant with great, fresh italian food with excellent service and wine. The perfect place to go with friends or just for two or even on your own! It has a relaxed ambience where you can simply kick back... More

I went with my husband to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and it had good reviews. The food is good ( not excellent) and the environment is nice. However the waiter kept forcing us to order things that we really did not feel like having. She also forgot to bring the wine that she insisted we... More

Great Italian just off Collins st (Paris end). I have eaten here three times in various trips to Melbourne over past 5 years and am pleased to report consistent food/service quality and great, intimate and bustling atmosphere.

Great small restaurant. We were staying at the Grand Hyatt down the road. We had breakfast which was huge (for us anyway). Several coffees on different days with muffins. Great atmosphere and very very friendly staff. Look forward to coming back to Melbourne to have dinner here someday.
