We have dined at Il Solito Posto previously, a handful of times. We have always loved it. This time when we went we were incredibly disappointed. Despite there being a number of tables we were told we could only have the table by the door, a small table the four of us needed to squeeze into and to endure the... More

Great Italian food. This is a must to go to if you want to enjoy wonderful Italian food. Wonderful flavours, sizing of meals are very good, especially when dining at lunch time.

We went on a Monday night and the place was almost full. Had the anti pasta entree for 2 and it was huge. Should have shared a single serve. The pickled vegetables, button mushrooms, anchovies, dip and salami were tasty. The lamb stew main was tender and tasty. The basement venue is warm on a cold winters night and the... More

This is a great little Italian in a Melbourne CBD laneway. Very unassuming but with a great menu and a regular following. I've been here many times when staying in Melbourne for both business and pleasure and have always left happy. They also do takeaway which is great when you are in town for business and you just want to... More

This is a great Italian restaurant in a lane just off Collins Street, Melbourne and is a great dining experience. The food is typical Italian of simplicity and high quality. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff are genuinely welcoming and professional. This is one not to miss and even better it's pricing is great value

We went here for dinner on a Saturday night, we didn't book, so sat for about 20 minutes & had a drink while we waited for our table. We were seated at the nearest table to the entrance door unfortunately. Every time someone came into the restaurant they had to walk closely past table & bumped into people sitting on... More

We are here twice after arriving with no booking staff couldn't do enough to welcome us and look after us whilst we waited. Clearly popular with locals. There is a great atmosphere. The owner works there too and you can see staff like their jobs! Try the specials....

Value not proportional to experience. Trusted it would be a great hearty and wholesome experience. Left feeling underwhelmed Food was ok, but not blown away by price tag attached

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.
