This was a quirky little restaurant/cafe that I discovered by accident walking up an alley way near the grand hyatt hotel. Opposite what was Jamie Oliver's original restaurant in Melbourne the first time I found it I didn't even see a name plate on the door however this time I noticed a name above the door. Below ground level you walk down the stairs in to the restaurant and windows are at street level. The service is great and everyone is friendly. Whether it is for a cup of coffee or tea (tea service in their quirky teapots is great) or for a lovely meal with a great wine this place has it all. Very typical of Melbourne's top quality eateries.....

I was shown this place mid 2012 and had become my go to Italian restaurant when looking for a good quality dinner. Definitely recommend this place, I normally go the meatballs and some red wine, goes down a treat.

From my experiences, the waiters have been great - jovial yet efficient and happy to have a bit of banter

Great food and intelligent service. Interesting wine list with a mix of Australian and Italian wines and staff know all about them have an opinion and are willing to guide.

I typically have the pasta which is always beautiful and full if fresh flavour. Face is the prawn pasta. They always have yummy fresh oysters. Choc pudding to die for.

Such a lovely restaurant...full of atmosphere, excellent service and great food. My partner enjoyed the Italian omelette and my breakfast of toast with avocado, chilli and rocket was a perfect start to the day. The coffee was also done perfectly.
