Ate here with family two weeks ago and was expecting good food having read the reviews. Unfortunately we got enough memories to last forever as my son was violently ill 12 hours after eating the chicken parmigiana. My pesto dish was also terrible - it looked like spinach had been cut up instead of basil and there were no pine... More

It is with a deep concern for my diners that I find I must reply to your comments about my restaurant. First and foremost my wishes are that your son has recovered from his illness. The restaurant is obviously being blamed for your son's illness and I find it very hard to believe that this was not bought to our... More

The decor is a step back in time, truly Italian and family orientated and pianist is a great touch. This is the perfect family restaurant, the staff look after the kids and teat them like valued guests. The food is great and really well priced so when we are in th city, it's a regular destination. Definitely worth taki

We went on a Saturday night and for quite a large busy restaurant we enjoyed the atmosphere. We had a table near the window and could see the street. The food was typical italian done very well and the service was excellent.

I had not been here in a long time. Atmosphere still great. It was a rather busy Saturday evening but due to quick service, and I suppose we walked in as theatre crowds were heading off we were able to be seated immediately. Price of meals is reasonable. Service was excellent and engaging. Shared a few jokes with waitress who... More

We have been coming to the Spaghetti Tree a couple of times a year for over 10 years now and can honestly say we absolutely always look forward to a feed here. I always have the Veal Scallopini and it is always delicious. I don't think that the menu has changed a great deal if at all and that's probably... More

We love eating here. Always friendly service and the food is always tasty and filling. Good selection of food and wine to choose from and great location for a bite to eat before the theatre.

I love the decor in this place. We ate a delicious dinner here. As a bonus, there was a gentleman playing music (keyboard and then violin). The staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend to others.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
