The food is, as others have said, good, unpretentious and Sicilian. Even interesting. As a dining experience in a major city the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. Good food ought to be enjoyed slowly but the mandatory two-sittings per evening policy forces haste and dishonours the food and it's creators. Given the prices for a meal in a very ordinary, if not shabby, Lygon Street bar, this policy smacks of greed and complacency. Come on Melbourne. Get real. Who would pay these prices to perch in uncomfortable and cramped surroundings for decent but ordinary food when places all over the world do at least as well on the food and let you linger longer. When will people in Melbourne wake up and realise how they are being cheated of a decent eating out experience such as that enjoyed all over the world?
