Visited Le Cinque Terre for the first time last week. This place is fantastic the decor is fun and a bit quirky and the food is just terrific. This is a lovely intimate little restaurant with great tapas and sharing plates, staff who do there stuff really well and make you feel like you just belong there and nothing would be too much trouble, you can feel there passion for the job. Can't wait for visit number 2.

Food and hospitality do not get any better than at Le Cinque Terre. Four of us "foodies" had the best dining experience in years of eating in numerous Melbourne restaurants. All the staff were very keen and obliging and the food was to die for (especially the panacotta!) Everything was PERFECT and couldn't fault this restaurant in any way (not that we would want to!)

I've been at Le Cinque Terre last week for the first time, and was absolutely terrific! We had some tapas and the paella, and everything was so tasty! delicious! The staff is really friendly and efficient, and they made us incredibly comfortable creating the perfect atmosphere.
I think is a restaurant where everyone can spend great time with delicious food and bubbly staff!

This place has only been open a few months but it's now our favourite restaurant on Bay Street, and we have visited for dinner, breakfast & lunch over several weekends. The food is fabulous with a mix of everything from tapas to Italian & service is second to none. This little place reminds me of numerous little tapas places I visited in Spain, it has a really genuine feel to it. I'm vegetarian and my partner is not, so Karolina,one of the owners, has suggested alternatives from the menu they can make me so we can share tapas. Highlights on the menu for me are the great specials each week, the prawn tapas with an amazing sauce, Tasmanian baked eggs for breaky & the family recipe Tiramisu is one of the best I've ever tasted! The place is tiny, so you have to book on a weekend night. Overall, great food, value for money and a lovely atmosphere.

We went out to get dinner with our friend, we returned with more friends, a stomach full of delight and a smile on our face.
It is a small & intimate place but the staff is very helpful & just dances from table to table.
Please go there or book them for a private function at home. They won't disappoint you! we will be back!
