The Spaghetti Marinara and cakes were absolutely delicious. The array of cakes was mind boggling. Service was fast and efficient although I don't find it warm. I would return again next time I come to Melbourne.

Wow where do you begin. This place is a must visit for decadent delights to thrill your senses. Visited last Saturday. Pouring rain outside but a delight inside. After carefully selecting our eat in treats, and deciding to take some home as well, we collected...More

This is quite an amazing experience, about 3/4 a cake shop, then very nice pasta, risotto etc. and then a huge ice cream cart with some very interesting and yummy flavours. The biggest problem we had was what to chose from all that was on...More

We usually visit this iconic shop at least once when we visit Melbourne and this time the quality of cakes and coffee were as we expected, very tasty and fresh . PJ Barker author of the novels Changing Pillion and, It Began in Naples.

Stalwart of Melbourne for decades. There is a readon there is a queue every night. Do what everyone else does and eat at one of the Italian restaurants but don't have dessert, go here instead.

Brunette from back of 30’years ago has nothing to do with these fast food chains. Cakes not good, fake creams. Fast made not authentic anymore. Price? Forget it! most expensive in Melbourne Will not go back

Staff too cool to worry about customer service or food safety. We tried to get staff attention to let them know there were flys in the food. No one interested.

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
