Description: We are an Italian restaurant and bar located on Flinders Lane in Melbourne CBD. Open from breakfast through to late night, serving handmade pasta, pizza and modern Italian cuisine. Our pasta is prepared from scratch each day in our kitchen, using a special sprouted, germinated flour to give it lower gluten content and authentic Italian flavour.

I should have gone with the suggestion of the server - go with the pasta. I tried the barramundi and it was limp and not firm at all. Perhaps it had been defrosted? It had no flavour. Service was very nice and the staff were very friendly.

This was easily the best meal I've had in a while. The ambiance and service are perfect, wine selection succinct but good and the reasonably short menu is to the point, offering plenty of choice.
I chose a special pasta with duck and shiitake mushrooms which was just delicious. The Tartufo dessert is to die for!
I've recommended it multiple times already and look forward to my next visit. The city location is convenient, close to trains, trams and parking.

Visited Lello last night for its famous handmade pasta. Received very warm and friendly welcome soon as we walked in the door (almost felt like home!). The whole place is warm and fuzzy and the decor is absolutely gorgeous! Our waiter was a very friendly funny Italian who gave us great recommendations. Good varieties of dishes and drinks. Highly highly recommended! ☺️

Been here 3 times in past 6 months now - always excellent food and service plus an interesting wine list that's not overpriced.

It was our first night meal in Melbourne and boy, what an experience it was! Will was superb, so were the other staff. We had a seat from where we could see the kitchen through the glass window and it just had a great vibe about the place-we could the see the staff enjoying each other's company, having fun while preparing great food!
Will was just perfect with his service from drinks to food and we just had a GREAT time! Would love to go back if we have enough time and would advise anyone to go there for great service and great food!
