“Standout food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We found this to be a very good Italian restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed it because the service and food was of such high quality and was totally unpretentious. The pasta dishes were incredibly tasty and entree size as a main was plenty. North Melbourne is also a fabulous change from the more typical (and too busy) Melbourne dining scenes and the restaurant has a great ambience without being too noisy. Loved it!

“They take their food seriously”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This place is hard to fault. From the excellent bread and olive oil, perfectly prepared pasta dishes, capretto, right through to the attentive but unobtrusive service provided by professional waiters, we were delighted. Serves were generous, without being excessive. So we left with that pleasantly satisfied feeling and not begrudging a single cent of the bill.

“Reliably exceptional italian cuisine and fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

This restaurant would be one of my favourite Italian Restaurants in Melbourne. Everything is marvellous from the service, to the owner Maurice who goes to each individual table to see if diners are happy, to the beautiful fresh bread and lovely olive oil and the amazing pastas and main dishes. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Delicious food”

We have had a few wonderful dining experiences at this restaurant. Food is always fresh, delicious and plentiful. It is fairly quiet and service is impeccable. A very special night out!

“Pricey but pretty perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Popped in here for lunch, we were a bit short of time and wished we could have stayed longer. This is a classic Italian restaurant, crisp white tablecloths and decent tablewear. The waiting staff are also classic...no kids in jeans here. We enjoyed their stuffed Zucchini flowers, they were beautifully cooked, (unlike another famous Italian restaurant in the CBD who had drenched theirs in thick crumbs and grease). Also, had the braised lamb and tortellini - fabulous. They have the choice of smaller portions with some dishes which I find ideal for lunch. Parking is a problem as it's situated on a busy road, there is some on nearby Richmond Rd. I'll definately go back for dinner and try some wines from their interesting and extensive list.
