Tiamos has been one the most popular Melbourne restaurants for many years...its staffed by the various members of one Italian family...Its antipasto used to be renowned but they have cut back on that now...Its coffee has always been highly rated. Though that is not so much the case now,its still good. The food is an excellent version of Italian fare and that is borne out by the busy atmosphere, I am a regular there, as are a lot of other people, if you can get a seat...

Went for supper and had to wait 5 minutes before they had a table availble.
My linguini with prawns was wonderful! And the lambshank with vegetables was also very good and well prepaired.
One of the better meals we had in Oz during our 1,5 month stay.
We shared a lemon cheescake which was so good, and a very generous portion!

Very good food, would be 5 star if there where a couple of more prawns in my pasta, and if they serve the wine from wine glasses instead of bisteo glasses.

Only here have i been able to eat the real rigatoni ragu. Fantastic. Perfect napolitana, nice meat chunks, and pasta perfectly cooked. What else? Needs a more customer friendly non blasé staff but this is saved by the food and coffee. Nice classic euro environment too...

Great for any meal, inside or outside on Lygon St. I have been eating here since the 1970s and always visit at least once when I'm in Melbourne. Authentic Italian food.

Typical Lygon Street with choice of indoor or pavement seating, heaters on in winter. Excellent menu choice, moderate ok wine list (including Italian by glass, carafe or bottle). Friendly and efficient service. Each order came out reasonably quickly - they work hard to keep the patrons turning over as place is popular. Bookings not required, staff will work hard to get you seated asap. There was a continuous stream of diners arriving this winter's Sunday. Meals have a home cooked feel to them, as if cooked by an Italian mother. Very comforting. Enjoyable and from the comments of my companion, who has eaten here over many years, consistently a very good standard. Also great coffee.
