Description: Head Chef Antony Campbell and his team create a menu of contemporary Italian cooking where the focus is on quality ingredients and pure flavours. This is Italian cooking which is as influenced by tradition, as it is by what's happening in Italy today. When you dine at Vino e Cucina Restaurant you also have access to over 450 Italian wines including the largest collection of aged Italian wines in Australia. This is a unique experience to explore some of the best examples of indigenous Italian grape varieties and regional style. Our knowledgeable staff is always available to help you with your selection. We are opened for lunch and dinner from Thursday to Saturday. Sunday is lunch only.

“Meraviglioso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

A welcoming, friendly and wonderful dining experience.
From making our reservation on the phone to leaving the restaurant, we were delighted. The food was fantastic and the service was attentive but not intrusive. The environment made you feel at home. Actually, better than at home, as there was no cleaning up.
We enjoyed a wonderful time with family and never felt rushed.

“WOW WOW WOW WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is an absolute must to go to and eat. We went there for a private birthday party function which was just out of this world.

I had not been there before and did not want to leave. The retail wine and food shop is mind boggling let alone the food we ate for dinner.

This is on my wish list to go back to on my return to Melbourne in fact I think it will become a regular.

“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

We have now been back to this restaurant three times and every time we have loved it. The food is wonderful, the staff are wonderful. The surrounds are lovely. We were there on a sunny day last time and was able to sit in the court yard. You felt like you could have been in a village in Italy. The shop attached to the restaurant is fantastic. The wine selection amazing. We have highly recommended this lovely restaurant to our friends. Can't wait to go back again

“Fantastic gluten free dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We recently dined at enoteca for their special 5 course gluten free dinner as part of the Melbourne wine and food festival. It was outstanding! Each dish was beautiful with fresh,delicious ingredients-many of which are available in their wonderful store. We had drinks in their gorgeous courtyard and the choices of wines are excellent. Staff were friendly & helpful. We will definitely be going back as many of their regular menu dishes have gluten free options.
A really lovely experience.

“A great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

A great find in Lygon st, Carlton (further down from the mainstream). We were in Melb. For business and had dinner at Enoteca with some colleagues. We have been several times and never disappointed with the food or service. The waiters have a great knowledge of the Italian wines and are very happy to help you choose. If you try it and its not to your taste they will offer something else. The other bonus is the grocery side of the business. It's open till you finish dinner so you can buy and take wine,cheeses, oils,amazing balsamic and lots more.
Definitely worth shopping and eating there. They also have a catalogue which you can request items to be shipped home. I would recommend it to all my friends.
