I am very bemused by the high ratings given for this restaurant. First impressions when entering were quite good, but as we were shown to our table further down, we realised how noisy it was. It was almost impossible to hear each other over the...More

I had the Spaghetti Marinara, it was amazing. I’m Italian, so extremely fussy when it comes to pasta. The staff were also flawless. It’s an old school style restaurant, which delivered a great ambience. I really enjoyed my experience. Thank you.

Authentic Italian dining in the heart of Melbourne. I have an Italian mother-in-law, and this is the closest to her food I have ever experienced.

We ate in the casual dining part of the restaurant. Meal sizes were huge, with both of us were struggling to finish our plates. Pasta was fresh, meat tasty and coffee excellent. Service was quick. Only negative was they forgot my coffee.

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

You could wear a dress. It's Melbourne so feel free to express yourself. This restaurant is fairly casual although lots of people there after work wearing suits and work dresses etc.

I agree with 111Jenny. It is a great place to take your time and enjoy their attention to detail and great service. However it would always be best to check with the staff there.
