We enjoyed this restaurant. It is in a good location and the food was really great! The buzz of Lygon Street added to the atmosphere. We were seated outside but it was very comfortable. The staff were amazingly helpful, professional and courteous. Would recommend this...More

The staff get 5 stars, they are really great! The food was really just ok, not bad just not great. Pasta meals were a little bland and the seafood dishes had limited seafood. I would go here again however as we still enjoyed our time.

Came here for dinner with a friend. Like most restaurants on Lygon Street they had annoying people out the front demanding you eat there. Once we slipped past them though we had a lovely experience. I ordered the meatlovers pizza which was very tasty. Highly...More

Food was ok. Crispy pork belly actually had crispy crackling which is always a nice surprise. Lamb cutlets were cooked very well. Very attentive with checking on drinks. I won't be rushing back but it certainly wasn't an awful experience.

Was lured in with the promise of complimentary bruschetta, ice cream for the kids and 20% off the bill. Well who could say No to that when scouring for a nice place to eat down Lygon St. The service here was great, pasta was made...More

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
