We had a lovely lunch on a cold Melbourne day. We ate in the bar area and chose off the specials board. Creamy Mushroom with truffle, herbed bread and broccoli dressed in olive oil and chilli. Very tasty and fresh. Would definitely come back.

We risked a walk across the city to eat here after an attempt to book failed. Fortunately there were plenty of tables ( much more that the "few" quoted on the phone 20 minutes prior). I enjoyed my fatafelle salmonella dish which was tasty but...More

This place has lots of atmosphere, dark, cosy and welcoming. Great service, quick, friendly and efficient. Food was excellent Italian, wonderful desserts, fairly extensive wine list. Certainly a place I'd go back to.

Visiting from Queensland and whilst looking for another eating establishment found this little gem on Collins St. Amazing service with authentic cuisine. The food was fresh and the wine refreshing. Would definitely come here again in future.

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.
