I don't know Hobart very well, but I knew I wanted a really good coffee to start my day. I went on TripAdvisor this morning and found a review on Villino - the review was accurate and the coffee was fabulous. So I had two while I did some work. The food is quite minimal so don't go there with... More

A select few spots in Hobart are ones that I would consider as having "great" coffee, and Villino is certainly in that category. It's about quality and service, and both of those boxes are very much ticked here.

This is the first time I've ever taken the time to do a review, so that should tell you just how great my cappuccino was. It was hands down the best I've ever had, and I'd go back every morning if I could.

If you are a bit fussy about the coffee you drink, I expect you to be happy with the coffee at Villino in Criterion Street in the centre of Hobart CBD. Different single origin coffees from around the world guarantee you will not be bored if you visit repeatedly. Plus most of the Villino guys know just about everything possible... More

We only wanted something light for breakfast and Villino was perfect for our needs. Beautiful sour dough bread with sides and the best coffee I have tasted in a long time. Great customer table service and happy friendly staff.
