Hidden downstairs a busy but well staffed eatery serves terrific Italian food. Beef carpaccio was deliciously tender and my panna cotta one of the yummiest desserts I have ever tasted. Ambiance is Euro. Staff courteous and friendly. Coffee was also excellent.

This place oozes effortless style. It doesn't try to be the most trendy or cutting edge. It's a great spot for a special occasion. Does all the Italian classics to perfection and the service is faultless.

What a hidden gem this place turned out to be. Tucked away in a subterranean location, it would be so easy to wander past without giving it a second look. Don’t!!! If you pass by without popping in you’ll miss an authentic, amazing culinary experience....More

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
