Lovely Italian restaurant with great ambience. Very vibrant atmosphere with excellent food and service. The menu was typically Italian but interesting, beautifully presented and great tasting food. The waiters had great personalities and added to our wonderful evening. We look forward to visiting again soon.

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
