Description: Insieme Ristorante was established in late 2009 and current owners Caroline Swaffield and Raffaela Del Vecchio invite you to the Insieme experience. Italians are renowned for their collectivist orientations and the word 'insieme' means 'together'. In true Italian tradition, dining is an experience to be shared. It is a time where passionate discussions of all kinds take place, be they about life, politics, love or business. In Italy, this daily discussion occurs over good food and plenty of wine.

This is an elegant and intimate restaurant that mainly caters to the business lunch crowd. The staff are friendly and professional, though the service can be a little slow when busy. Although there weren't any vegetarian options on the menu, vegetarian diners are easily accommodated as the pasta sauces are made on order and specific ingredients are happily excluded on request. It is expensive (starters $15-$20, pasta $25-$30, mains $30-$35, sides $10, desserts $14) but the food is of high quality and the serves are generous. I definitely recommend sneaking in one of their delectable desserts if you can.

Just a couple of points to note:
- Insieme is open for lunch on weekdays and for dinner on Wednesdays to Fridays.
- It's great for a business lunch, but I would also consider it for a romantic dinner.

The venue was elegant and understated; the music floated above us creating a warm ambience; the staff were efficient, friendly and engaging; and, the food and wine were excellent.
Overall our dining experience was pleasurable and the level of engagement we had with the staff was great. They were friendly without being over familiar. The food was delicious! I'd definitely go back! Thank you! :)

What a great little italian restaurant serving well produced, not over garnished , honest and good quality cuisine.
Staff are excellent, personable, knowledgeable and efficient.
The pasta is fresh made, sauces are very true in flavours and all cooked very well.
Wine selection and by the glass is superb. Great buzzy lunch venue or cooler dinner
Well worth a return.

They can pack them in here but that's because it's so in-demand, and the service while always professional can suffer when they are super busy. But the food is fresh and excellent and generously proportioned. It's not cheap but then some business lunches shouldn't be.

I enjoyed a Valentines Day dinner at Insieme and as it was my first visit to this restaurant, I was looking forward to it. The atmosphere was very classy and intimate with a minimalist design. I had scallops for entree and chicken breast for a main, followed up by a Frangelico chocolate tart. Everything was beautifully presented, cooked to perfection and nothing was too much trouble. I would rate the service at Insieme as outstanding. Staff were friendly, helpful, polite and always there when you needed them. Their knowledge of the food and the wine was second to none. We will definitely be going back for another dinner soon.
