On a trip from the UK, this was recommended to me today as I didn’t have plans. Great atmosphere and beautifully cooked food, fresh and very quick to the table. Highly attentive staff. You can’t book for the evenings but they are very accommodating.

Absolutely the best Italian for lunch in St Kilda. The spaghetti Vongole and blue swimmer crab soufflé are to die for. The restaurant is small and can feel cramped when full, but its worth it for the food and service

St. Kilda
St. Kilda is an iconic beachside suburb and one of the
most culturally and economically diverse of
Melbourne’s neighbourhoods. It is a traditional haven
for musicians, artists and writers, drawn to the
European ambience and fresh ocean breezes. At night,
it can have an edgier side, but by day, it features a
relaxed vibe – the market stalls, boutiques and
outdoor bars display St. Kilda’s easygoing attitude.
