Wonderful food and designed to share! Staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The place can get quite cramped and noisy, but the food is really yum!

Love! The food, the setting, the team- you actually can't top it. Zero arrogance, no inflated 'label prices', a menu that captures incredibly fresh and 'right now' foods. Every time I go, I ask myself why it's been so long between drinks, and walk out promising I'll be back more regularly. Never disappointed. Great family dinner, great 'welcome to Melbourne'... More

This is a great little restaurant with wonderful home-cooked food and the house wine is great. Very good value for money. Small menu, but what's on it is fantastic. We had a lot of dishes and couldn't fault any of them. If you have a larger group, book the private room upstairs.

This place is warm and inviting giving the impression of big Sunday dinners at Nona's house. The eggplant dish is my favorite, but saying that I try and fit everything on the menu in. It is reasonably priced and the staff are lovely, you can even buy home made Olives and pickles to take home. My method is to take... More

Loved the authentic food and setting. Service was good too. The zeppole was awesome. Between 4 of us we ordered 2 primi, 4 secondi, and 2 contorni. There was more than enough food for all of us. All the dishes we ordered were excellent and authentic. Loved the Sicilian spritzers as well.

This little restaurant had a friendly, no-frills, homey feel to it. Our dinner group enjoyed the house wine along with great food. Prices are very reasonable and we were all fully fed when we left. Highly recommend!

I really hate writing negative reviews but our meal here was very disappointing. Entrees were nice & the cassata for dessert was nice too. But the mains were very ordinary as was the wine which was probably one of the more expensive on the menu list & at over $60 a bottle was overpriced & not particularly good. For a... More
