Went here some years ago. Meals were large and tasty. Alcohol options were pretty basic (deliberately? Harking back to the olden days when they didn't have a liquor license and apparently used to serve 'special coffees', which were cheap wine in a mug. Or so I hear). Worth a visit. Would go back.

We have been here a few times, always get a seat. It's not flash decorations but very Italianish. Good price and good service, tasty food. Good for late nights after theatre or cinema

You climb the old wooden stairs. You walk into a very old-looking place, sparsely decorated, chalkboard menu and a Pepsi fridge. You think to yourself, forget it. But then you look around - the place is reasonably full and it is still not 7pm, the food being carried to the tables looks good. Must stay. Good decision. Pappardelle pasta with... More

We had been to this restaurant before and it didn't disappoint. The gnocchi were excellent, very fresh and light and the penne putanesca was fine. Service was quick and pleasant. The setting is basic and upstairs and the location means it takes a bit of finding but all in all a good meal

We were sick of trendy 'tweezer food' restaurants and decided to give this restaurant a go for lunch. Really good food , decent serves equates to good value for money. We arrived after 1pm and the place had quite a few people still ordering so we wondered how long our food would take. Once we had decided , our food... More

I used to eat here 20 years ago and the vibe and food is still the same, even if the staff are no longer all Italian. I was interested to see all Indian cooks in the kitchen at a recent visit on a Friday night and was worried the food wouldn't taste quite the same, but never fear - it... More

This restaurant is all about the food. We shared a wonderful garden salad, spaghetti with garlic and oil, and chicken al vino. Yummy!

The restaurant is simple, like a trattoria and the food tastes like home. I've ordered gongorzola gnocchi, to lick the plate! Very easy to find and I like the idea that was used in the past from waiters to meet up after long working days.. full of locals, that means to me that the quality is constantly good! absolutely for...

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.
