We ate at this restaurant twice on our recent stay. We would definitely recommend it. The Italian staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was great.

We recently stayed a couple of nights in the city to go to Cirque du Soleil and discovered this cafe. We enjoyed it so much that we went back the second night. It isn't a place for a long, lingering dinner - it's a eat and go on to something else or eat after work and go home place. On both nights, there was a queue outside and that was a Tuesday and a Wednesday! We really enjoyed the food and the service and plan to return.

This restaurant was great... food, service...but they load there food with MSG... one of our companions reacted with hallucination all night. If you are msg sensitive... avoid it like the plague, no matter how it smells, or ask them if they can leave it out or what meals omit it

Having eaten many times in Italy and at Italian restaurants in Melbourne I can only say this was an average meal with average service. Creamy mussels and tasteless lemon tart. Pizza may be better, but did not try it. Probably OK for a family meal, but not a good Italian restaurant.

You couldn't honestly say that this is a high standard restaurant because it isn't and doesn't pretend to be. The food is generally good and cooked in an Italian rustic style with generous servings.
However, steer away from the Rissotto as it is bland and cooked without stock - not good.
The Pizza is a different story, crispy and always spot on.
The owner, Roberto, is always there and is a pleasant chap who adds a sense of Italian charm and authority to the restaurant.
The service is always chaotic and patchy as others have also said, however, this adds to the nature of the restaurant in some way.
The restaurant is always full, every day of the week, which speaks volumes for its popularity.
It is very well priced with good solid Italian food.
My family when they come down from Hong Kong always insist on at least one visit to this restaurant.
