Menu fisso is definitely the way to go. Get smaller portions of four meals plus a dessert. Basically 2 entrees and 2 mains to share with classic Italian flavours. Food was very good and wine selection was decent, although i found the very limited Italian offering very disappointing....Staff were great, we'll be back and will recommend to friends.

From my daughter's suggestion as to (hard to find) and a lover of great hand made gnocchi and polenta, we decided to book in for our wedding anniversary. It was fringe time and thought we would get in early to find a park for our 6pm booking. As it turned out we found a park right in front, but being... More

Simply stunning. Menu Fisso is $65pp and is outstanding value, but don't fill up on the polenta entrees as you'll have no room left for the mains (and dessert). The food, staff, atmomsphere and overall experience was outstanding. We are so grateful that they were able to squeeze our little group of 5 in. I highly recommend this to anyone... More

Some people said before going "don't eat anything today" and I thought they were kidding. The food was very good, multiple servings with enough variety not to become boring and the staff are constantly buzzing around being helpful in what was a very busy and popular place. Well worth a visit - but don't eat beforehand.

We dined at Andre's on Saturday of the long weekend in March. Having travelled across from Shepparton, Victoria to meet friends, we were so pleased they'd organised this gem - booking is a must, and I daresay in advance to avoid disappointment! All of us chose the $65 per head 'banquet' option (I forget the actual title sorry) - essentially... More

We arrived an hour before our booking, waited outside in the freezing cold, and were nearly regretting our decision. I'm so glad we didn't leave! Everything about the whole experince was fantastic, the atmosphere and srvice is great; i has a dark and romantic vibe with nice music and decor. Then there's the food!!! Melt-in-the mouth gnocchi which was so... More

We were lucky enough to be given a voucher from our children as a Xmas gift and what a wonderful gift. Right from the time we entered the place to the time we left we were looked after. The young lady that served us really knew her food and wine and had been trained very well. She explained all the... More

Six of us for dinner, we had the $65 per head deal (not sure what they called it) soooooo much food but it was so delicious we ate just about everything. Quail, steak, gnocchi, seafood, salad & veg. I rarely eat dessert but the Italian doughnuts(??) were amazing as were the petit fours. Would definitely return. Oh - great staff... More
