Unfortunately we were a party of six without a reservation but they made it work, made us welcome and the service was excellent! The food was delicious! If you love Italian food, flat whites and good wine this is the place for you!

A pleasant restaurant for a solo meal while on business. I enjoyed the ambiance, an excellent barramundi and the gorgonzola cheese platter - all well prepared and sumptuous.

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

You could wear a dress. It's Melbourne so feel free to express yourself. This restaurant is fairly casual although lots of people there after work wearing suits and work dresses etc.

I agree with 111Jenny. It is a great place to take your time and enjoy their attention to detail and great service. However it would always be best to check with the staff there.
