Description: Il Tempo means Its The Right Time.... To visit us and experience our casual Italian cafe with the friendliest, most courteous staff in Melbourne. Established in 2000 and conveniently located in Degraves Street, just across from Flinders Street Station. Whether you choose to dine outside (Alfresco) or inside the European style bistro, Il Tempo cannot be beaten for authentic Italian cuisine, reasonable prices and a fun ambience. Yes, the cozy, dimly lit atmosphere makes it difficult to want to leave and head home after dinner, but luckily, we are opened late.. So we suggest you sit back and relax and slowly sip that wonderful Chianti from our extensive wine list. Or maybe we will tempt you with one of our famous desserts...

Nice warm Italian restaurant in CBD, Melbourne, close to Flinders Street Station . The staff are friendly and in 3 different nationality. The deco is retro without being old and dusty. Menu is sufficient, and the helping size is good. The pasta sauce is nice. The pasta is on the chewy side, but thats the texture I like my pasta. It turns out the chef is Chinese. But the cooking is nice despite the chef's nationality. We had lunch there and the place was nearly full on a Wednesday. On the whole its good value for the money. A restaurant we no doubt will return to when visiting Melbourne.

Have been here a couple of times now- the food is great and the service is good too. I would recommend the salmon and the seafood linguine if available (on the specials board). Cosy inside, was a great spot to watch people walking outside on Degraves Street. Will return again!

Just dropped in looking for a feed on a Melbourne evening. Welcomed into the Il Tempo - very good, efficient and friendly service. Meals were good - salmon special with caponata was nice and trad spag with meatballs was tasty.
