We just kind of stumbled along this little gem hidden away in the hustle and bustle of the city. The service was great with all the waiters offering a smile and prompt service. The food including the meatballs were tasty. A great little Italian restaurant

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

You could wear a dress. It's Melbourne so feel free to express yourself. This restaurant is fairly casual although lots of people there after work wearing suits and work dresses etc.

I agree with 111Jenny. It is a great place to take your time and enjoy their attention to detail and great service. However it would always be best to check with the staff there.
