I have been here twice in the past month and I don't even live in Melbourne. Once because it was recommended and the second time because we stumbled across it whilst waiting to be called from another restaurant. When I walked in the second time I was greeted by the manger who although couldn't immediately place me, knew I had eaten there before recently. Thats how good the service is. If you want wonderful home cooked Italian, great atmosphere, great food, then this is the place. I recommend you try the meatballs!
