We enjoyed the casual nature of this place. Blackboard menu. No prices but turns out each pasta costs the same. Standard recipes but pretty well done. Nice staff. We will return. Ps. Don’t rely online bookings. They had a problem with ours.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
