I love this place. Tucked nicely off Collins street this is a cool little Italian restaurant with excellent food and great service. It's always busy so if you are planning on going later in the week or on the weekend book ahead. Great spot of you are travelling for work and want quality food, nice vibe and nice vino!

When you walk into this place, you are immediately swept into a warm atmosphere. The place was packed midweek and we were encouraged by our waiter to order reasonably quickly as there were several larger tables just being seated. We couldn't fault the food and our waiter was very attentive, keeping our glasses topped and making sure were felt at... More

From the moment we walked into 'Il Solito Posto' we knew we were in for a great night. A lovely buzz and warm, friendly service abounded. The meal was wonderful. I had mussels in tomato sauce with chilli and garlic followed by duck while my husband had oysters and slow cooked lamb. Everything was superb! Wine list was very good... More

Just got into town and went strolling for a bite to eat. Arrived no reservation. Waited at the bar with a drink. People friendly throughout. Got a table after 45 minutes or so and it was worth the wait. Good food. Good place. Try it.

Gosh this is a great place. It has all the elements. Warm homely space, great atmosphere, terrific food, great wines and excellent staff. It's the latter is like to comment on here. The people who served us here last - particularly the two guys with beards - are just so good at their jobs. They picked our mood so well... More

We were recommended this venue as "great Italian food served with passion" Went early on Friday night as we did not have a booking and got excellent table in a busy at 7 pm restaurant. Waitresses were excellent with recommendations and service, pate divine and calamari was very tender. Pasta and meatballs were melt in your mouth. Good service and... 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.
