Visited Lupino while holidaying in Melbourne. Excellent and friendly service throughout. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive. The meal was beautiful as was the wine - a Tuscan Sangiovese. Great atmosphere and everyone seemed to enjoying themselves.

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
