This is a quiet haven in the heart of Melbourne's CBD. Elegant and comfortable, you feel welcome from the moment you walk through the he door. The food is excellent and the service impeccable. It is great every time I visit!

Very nice restaurant. Like many restaurants in Flinders Lane it is located below road level. You could almost walk past and miss it. Everything was cooked to perfection! Friendly attentive staff, stylish surrounds and normal easy to read Italian menu.

Well as an outbound tour host in cities like Rome, Siena, Florence, Alba, Taormina, Siracusa and Marsala, it is fabulous to visit this wonderful home country ristorante upholding Melbournian Italo-traditions.

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
