Tucked away opposite a multi-storey carpark. It's name is not on the outside of the building but marked by an outline of a wolf's head in neon red. Starters start from 14 onwards. The cauliflower fries are a must-try. We had their special grilled octopus...More

You always receive great service here, the food is excellent, its not overly expensive and the atmosphere is very nice, not too loud, not too bright, just right. Great stuff. Recommended for couples, groups, solo and friends. Nice for a business lunch too.

An absolutely perfect dining experience! Exquisite food that leaves you planning your next visit to try more. Wonderful service and lovely atmosphere (not too loud despite being full for most of the afternoon). Highly recommended for beautiful Italian food done with Melbourne style.

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
