My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner here. Great food, great service! Our waiter, Emmanuel, was excellent. We are just visiting Melbourne for a few days but if we lived here, the Spaghetti Tree would be a frequent stop for us. Oh, and the oldies music they play was awesome!

We recently arrived with less than an hour pre show and without reservations. The staff were fantastic, so helpful and had us out in time although the restaurant was very busy. The meals were terrific, just wish we had more time to enjoy them! Will definitely be back to do justice to the restaurant.

Comedy festival time and first choice for good quick service (without compromise for taste ) is Spaghetti Tree. Years of repeat visits when you are under the pump for time hit the wall last night. Booked for specific time telling receptionist our deadline for meal timeline reiterated with waiter as we entered. Arrived 5:45 as planned. Place order almost immediately... More

Large restaurant with poor service and pretty average food. Much better places in Melbourne to go to.

love this place for its great food selection, top location, & speedy service from terrific staff. We were going to the theatre and had minimal time as usual so the staff were right on top of the situation and had our meals on the table quite quickly and it was beautiful as is all the food I have tasted there....

Our hotel staff suggested the Spaghetti Tree which was about 5 blocks from our hotel, uphill. Instead of going to Lygon St. (where all the Italian restaurants are). It was great food, we all enjoyed our dishes: garlic bread for a starter (4 slices, not alot of butter & garlic), carbonara, spaghetti and meatballs, di campagnia and ravioli primavera. a... More

Yes, it was a busy Thursday night. Yes, the place was full and things must have been hectic. All three mains were served cold. The waiter was very apologetic, but the truth is the quality of the dishes was poor and not helped at all by having to be sent back to the kitchen.

This is a restaurant with real atmosphere. The décor is so tastefully done giving the place a great feel. We were also lucky with a table near the window. We both ordered the Moroccan Lamb Salad which was full of lovely flavours. Service was excellent and we were only a short distance from Her Majesty's Theatre where we were going... More

We had a good service at Spaghetti Tree in Bourke St, a table beside the bay window. The view was great. We had calamari with a refreshing salad and Moroccan lamb with salad as entree, tiger prawn with rice and double cooked duck. Congratulations to the chef, waitress and manager for a wonderful dinner.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
