Just stopped in off the steeet to have a drink at the oval shaped modern bar, and had oysters. Will come back for dinner with a larger party. Good for business and tourists. Nice owner and staff

Just over Punt Road heading towards Toorak located on the right hand side of Toorak Road. Easy to get to via tram number 8. Smallish dining area but certainly cosy without being 'on top' of other diners. A variety of dishes on the menu covering many tastes. They can easily cater to special dietary requirements too. (I always check when... More

The food here is fabulous! Their calamari is great! Wine list extensive and great ambiance. It's a great place to have special dinner or sit at the bar and have a cosmopolitan! Go Cosi

Have recently eaten here twice and know it will be a favourite regular. Fantastic helpful and efficient staff. Even when short staffed, they managed expectations with a smile and a pleasant comment oh...and a complimentary limoncello. The pasta is outstanding as is the rissotto. No specials on the second visit but the oxtail pasta was divine.

Nice ambience and relaxing. Staff attention to detail but not intrusive. Great food and impressed that my well done steak was tender.

Just when I was losing faith in Melbourne eateries after succession of mediocre meals along comes Cosi. Entrees were Quail Ravioli and Scollops and Pork Belly that were really nice. Along comes the main of slow cooked Lamb Shoulder that was simply beautiful. Desert was a delicious creamed cheese cake with Balsamic infused Strawberries. Lovely. Best feed I've had in... More

We were frequent patrons of La Citta (now closed) and wanted to try the owners' other restaurant, we had a scrumptious meal and the chef even split our entrée so my husband could eat the pork belly while I enjoyed the scallops. My husband also raved about his quail ravioli. Both of us chose the spanner crab and saffron risotto... More
