Very tasty pasta in a moody basement. Staff were helpful not enthusiastic but I think they didn't want to be nosy. Enjoyed the night thoroughly.

This is a great find in Melbourne's CBD. The restaurant is tucked away below street level in a side street off Collins Street uop the Paris end of town. Perhaps a bit noisy at lunchtime with a full house?, but we dined in the early evening to do business and the noise level did not impede conversation.

The menu had a number of daily specials and the wine list was most adequate. Our waiter was attentive but in the background.

The fare is strongly Italian - which helps in an Italian restaurant - but authentic captures the range and styles.

Would strongly recommend to couples and business folk alike.

Loved it so much I visited 3 times.... The service was stand out- everyone was so friendly and happy to be there... even the matire'de who worked a double shift! The food is italian simply at its best without being over the top. The wine list is fantastic also, and to leave without having a coffee would be a sin!

I was invited by a business client for lunch with some of his colleagues during the week. A small restaurant located in the Basement just off Collins Street in Melbourne CBD offers an excellent, simple reasonably priced (at least for Melbourne) italian menu. The meal was excellent comparable to an italian meal in Italy. I had a great Risotto with an excellent glass of australian red wine followed by an espresso.The waiting staff were kind and accommodating- I did not recognise any italian accents. I would bet mind you that the Chef is Italian....

Wait staff exhibit a friendly atmosphere which accentuates the already relaxed ambience of the location. Food is excellent, had rabbit and pork penne for mains, both delicious. Desert we had semifreddo and chocolate pudding, heaven on a plate.

Recommend to anyone in Melbourne.
