Went last night with 2 friends for dinner after movie. We had 3 pasta specials and 2 wines $110. Food was a good serve size, quality of ingredients was good and it was tasty. The wait staff were a little brash and pushy so it wasn't an overly relaxing place to dine but we were appreciative of the speed, warmth... More

Service immediately on entering with a drink at the bar then seated quickly, served quickly great meal. Will definitely go back next time we travel to Melbourne. This place epitomises why Melbourne is renowned for great restaurants and food around Australia.

Good for morning coffee right the way through to dinner. A bit dark but cozy and good food. Service can be a bit sketchy but normally pretty decent. A CBD staple...

A perfect choice for a romantic rendezvous or a business lunch. The dining room is just something special and the food consistently brilliant.

A great location for both couples and business. I very much enjoyed my veal ragu, which was well prepared and plentiful. The doughnut dessert was tasty, although the doughnuts themselves were a little lacking. Great and friendly service, and lovely atmosphere.

We have been going here regularly for a number of years now whenever we are in Melbourne. We visited again this last trip on tow mornings and both were great. The place is downstairs from street level, but not completely underground, there are still windows so you can monitor the weather. We had the Italian scrambled eggs, and poached eggs... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous meal here on Saturday night. While the dining room was very busy and cheerfully noisy the service was very good and attentive We enjoyed everything we ate, but for me the highlight was the Antipasto plate we shared. I usually avoid Antipasto as it can often be little more than the chef opening... More

The restaurant staff were accommodating and friendly. The food was excellent and on trend (not your usual). I was lucky to have the three last oysters and they were delicious. Desert was the best and everyone enjoyed that although my husband thought the doughnuts could be better - his mother makes the best so you need to compete with that.... More

This is a gorgeous boutique restaurant. It has a lot of character with friendly staff and superb food. Really busy, but well-worth the wait to get in. Italian food, but quite a different menu to your typical Italian cafe. Everything that was served up was top quality. Although noisy, it's very romantic.

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.
