Have eaten here a couple of times and always impressed with the menu, range of.vegetarian options, quality of ingredients and friendly, attentive service. I had a great mushroom risotto chosen from about 6-8 options. I was really impressed by the eggplant chips which had a...More

Lovely menu and choice for anyone gluten free. Service is haphazard. Not terribly attentive. One person took the order and then other staff delivered wine, food, desserts and topped up the water. Not given advice on all the specials. Need to concentrate on service.

Overlooking the Yarra, and the fashion-hungry Melbourne populace, this Southgate eatery turned my teenager's birthday occasion into a night of fabulous fine dining. Risottos are the delicacy of the house. She was in heaven with her tomato-y soft-shell crab concoction. I ventured into scallops, my...More

We had the chicken pasta, lasagna and rocket salad and all was delicious. Sat at a beautiful riverside table. Waiters were lovely. Only curious thing was we were told on the way in at about 8pm that only pastas and risotto available and nothing else...More

Had a wonderful lunch here sitting in the sunshine overlooking the river. Wonderful food and wine selection matched with good service. Our waiter Genardo (not sure of spelling) was wonderful, the gnocchi delicious and the complimentary olives, homemade bread and olive oil was a lovely...More
