“Nice!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

If you're after a nice Italian food, one amongst many of those in Lygon Street, this is a good option. Been here a couple of times, gets busy; its casual, not pretentious and they have seating outside even during winter. Price are reasonable, heaps of variety from an all day breakfast, to focaccia, to pizza, to pasta and more

“good coffee with wifi”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

In a country where wifi is very difficult to find, this is a good place for breakfast while checking one's email.

“excellent food and service”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

my wife and I visited this restaurant on a busy weekday for lunch. we had garlic bread, chicken and mushroom risotto and scallopini. the service we received was excellent even to the point that at one point I got up to have a look at the desserts and within a minute a waitress came up to me and asked if I'd picked out what I wanted. The biggest mistake we made was ordering desserts as we couldn't do them justice, my wife had a chocolate and honey comb cheese cake and I had chocolate. they were great but much too much. we don't get down to Melbourne very often but we'll be going to this restaurant again when we do. my wife picked this restaurant out of dozens of others due to the crowd of people already in residence.
