“Impressed”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Six of us had dinner here and everyone was well satisfied with their meal. I had the lamb special - delicious! The mains range from $35 to $40 so not the cheapest in the area but being able to BYO wine is a bonus, and definitely the quality of food and service are worth it. Will definitely return.

“Wow! What more can we say?”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

What an excellent choice my partner made to dine here.
The service provided was extremely professional and polite with superb dishes to match.
Entrées selected were the Bruschetta and Cob Loaf.
Bruschetta was delicious; fresh, simple and tasty. The Cob Loaf came with two dips/spreads which tasted lovely, however the Cob Loaf was slightly overcooked (so made a little mess when cutting up).
Mains chosen included the Lamb Rack (Agnello A Due Mode - “Grilled four point lamb rack, seasoned with rosemary salt with a braised lamb neck rosette, resting on truffle scented cauliflower puree finished with confit shallots and a red wine jus”) and Chicken option (Pollo Ripieno Con Ricotta - “Chicken breast fillet filled with ricotta and fontina cheese served on a bed of roast corn, roma tomato, faro and rocket salad, lemon mascarpone and seeded mustard dressing”).
Both dishes were absolute heaven to the taste buds; the meat/chicken was extremely tender and top quality, whilst the chosen range of accompaniments just topped off these dishes to a ten out of ten!
Due to being so full, we chose to share a dessert (Amor Di Cioccolato - “soft centre choc pudding, white choc creamy custard, dark chocolate and sour cherry tart served with vanilla ice cream”)- wow! Just divine!
Fedele’s Ristorante Italiano, thank-you for a wonderful evening. We look forward to dining with you again soon.

“Christmas Day Lunch”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We booked Fedeles this year for our family Christmas Day lunch. This was the second time we have had Christmas a Lunch at Fedeles and we weren't disappointed. We were seated promptly and provided with drinks and a menu, bruschetta to start with then 5 options to choose from for each course - entree, main and sweets and then coffee to finish with. The choices were excellent and varied enough. The servings were of decent size with the outstanding meal being the beef we had for the main course, it was beautiful. Thank you to the all the staff for the service and food provided. We will definitely be booking again for next year.

“New owners - really enjoyed the food but service could improve”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We have dined at Fedele's many times over the past 10-15 years and always enjoyed our nights there. The restaurant has been taken over by new owners in recent times and we decided to give it a go. I'd received a text message from them announcing the new ownership which I thought was a good idea. We enjoyed our night at Fedele's as we have in the past because the food was delicious and the service friendly. Maybe we struck them on an off night but our experience with the service was while all the waiting stuff were very friendly, they were rather slow. There wasn't any lack of willingness to provide good service but I got the impression that they lacked experience and I think didn't want to be obtrusive but as a result they weren't as attentive as they should have been. It just seemed to me that they needed coaching. We will be going back to Fedele's because the food was very good.

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We have been regular customers of Fedele's for many years and this is always our special occasion restaurant. Yesterday was our 32nd anniversary and everything at Fedele's was first class, from the very friendly but professional staff the the excellent food and presentation. Must be one of the best outer suburbs restaurants in Melbourne and we will be back there very soon.
