Great food and service

Four of us went there for dinner last night having a range of dishes from their relatively short menu. Polite, attentive and responsive service coupled with good food made an enjoyable night. Will be back.

When you're told about a place that you should go, I suppose it lifts the expectation. I went this week in a business group from out of town. Two of our group had been before and were disappointed we could have the 'upper area'. Apparently the food is slightly different but can't book in that area. It wasn't busy and... More

I cannot understand how this restaurant has such a good rating. The food is just okay, the menu limited, the tables are too close and too small, the noise level high, the wait staff disinterested and the prices too high for the quality of cooking. There are so many better Italian restaurants in Melbourne.

This was the second time we'd eaten in this restaurant. It has an excellent ambience reminiscent of an old European eatery and very different from the many modern Melbourne restaurants. The food is Italian and very tasty. They also carry a good selection of Italian wines. Very friendly service from our waitress who proudly told us that she had worked... More

I've visited this place every time I've stayed in Melbourne since I discovered it 6 years ago. Best Bircher muesli I've ever had and excellent coffee too. Staff are professional too.

We happened upon this restaurant when the queues were far too long at some other restaurants near by (1hour 30 for a table!) We waited for 30 minutes at the bar, and were totally looked after with bread, oil and olives. Our meals were fabulous, the seafood pasta was incredible. Lovely ambience and fabulous friendly service. A new favourite, I... More

Lovely experience here as a local (now ex local!), helpful staff and lovely food, great wine list and amazing atmosphere. The staff are always amazing and remembered me when I went back in last year! Well worth a visit especially on a Thursday or Friday evening after work...

First when the GM Steve greets you at the door and recommends his special Pinot Noir before dinner....which was awesome....the night was off to a great start. Even before dinner we shared our background and discuss various subjects with a lot of interest. We also had a great server named Lindsey. The food was the highlight. From olives to the... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
