Two couples for dinner on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was crowded, busy and noisy...and very brightly lit. The best part of our meal was the salad with what tasted like a house made dressing and the roast potatoes. Our starters were gigantes (butter beans)...More

Messini is fantastic! Simple meals, delicious flavours. Value is incredible (especially if you skip the beers and wine). My partner and I had an incredible dinner for less than $40 combined.
