Had a pre Comedy Festival dinner at this quaint, cosy little restaurant off Collins st. Food was great, service very good and location excellent. If you like home style Italian cuisine then you will not be disappointed. Highly recommended.

This is a top little Italian eatery and you could see by the crowd that it is a local favourite.The meals were both tasty, authentic and well priced. What really impressed me was the friendliness of the staff. This is something that I have found in most Melbourne eateries during our recent visit. Nothing makes your meal more enjoyable than...

You don't expect to be greeted by Asians when you walk into an Italian restaurant for lunch - but hey, this is Melbourne. We were walking away from the noise of amplified buskers and happened upon this place - talk about lucky. We perused the menu but both ended up selecting from the specials - very, very good and worth... More

We had delicious osso bucco, a very generous portion. Margot was a delightful server, too. My husband had eaten lunch here a year ago and wanted to take me there. So glad we went!

Two of us shared the osso bucco and a salad and even that was too much food! It was delicious. The swordfish was tasty and more delicate than I have had previously. The risotto was also great. Overall it was a fun place for a quiet dinner for 2 couples with good food and a nice atmosphere.

Great service. Basic food. Generous portions - the pappardelle delicious. My partner had the calamari and the dish came with salad and chips

Ate here during our recent visit to Melbourne - it's tucked out of the way and unless you knew it was there, you wouldn't find it but it's well worth the effort. Small and intimate; service very good and food, just delicious. Obviously genuine Italian food cooked on site. Well worth a trip.

In the centre of Melbourne, this is a small Italian restaurant we discovered quite by chance. The service was efficient and friendly, food arrived quickly, and was delicious. Prices were reasonable too, which is always a plus.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
