“Loved the food, staff very friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Walked passed this intriguing restaurant and decided to return for dinner. We were staying ( literally) across Bourke st Mall from them . Staff were very attentive and numerous, no waiting around for our order. Food was generous in size and delicious. We had the eggplant fritters with dip, bread with dips, agnolotti , and gnocchi. For dessert we tried the tiramisu which was also very well executed.

“I want to go back for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

This place was crazy good! We stumbled upon it because we were walking through it to get to another street. It's location is down a lane way and the whole restaurant is based outside. We had the paella and I wanted to cry it was so good! Way too much for two people but they asked us if we would like to the rest away, which was great not having to ask. We also had the eggplant frittes. Deep fried pieces of eggplant with a dip they were amazing!! Eat here you will be glad you did!

“Loved Loved Loved - Food, Location, Vibe, all of it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We went here one night with friends for dinner, looking for a central location for all of us in between all of our hotels. This little Italian place in a little alleyway right next to Melbourne's GPO does not disappoint! Basic Italian done well - cooked well and exactly properly to perfection, bursting with texture and flavour.

We all loved the dishes that we all ordered, with no faults.

Service was a little slow here, but the dark candlelight ambiance is great and perhaps suits this style of service.

Will go definitely back.

“Great location and even more great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

This is really a great place to eat and enjoy your drinks right in the center of the city just next to GPO. You can either sit inside which is really a nice atmosphere or outside to enjoy the lively Bourke Street.

Food was awesome. I had chicken skewers for entree and Pizza. Both were delicious.
