A McDonald's style Italian joint on the main street of South Melbourne should only work if the food served is fantastic and can compete quality wise with nearby trade. It isn't. It shouldn't. The flavour is bland at best. And, something wrong about paying for...More

Such a great little restaurant to enjoy hand made traditional pasta! It is also available for takeaway or ordering through 3rd parties so you don't even have to be there to enjoy it!! They let you choose your sauce and your pasta so it is...More

I didn't know this was a chain and was shocked and surprised at the range of Italian-style food available. But just note that it is Italian-style food (cooked? or warmed up?) by a couple of part-time, pimple-faced university students. This is NOT a restaurant and...More

Home delivery: Ordered salami olive pizza, added pesto n cherry toms. Genuinely good pizza. Also ordered garlic bread, it was small and lacked good garlic flavour. Do Better!

South Melbourne
South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous
market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged
fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens
and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole
neighbourhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the
hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays
of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in,
a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen
