Chose this restaurant quite by accident as we managed to find a carpark just in front. Turned out to be quite a good choice. We ordered pizza and focaccia which were really fresh and delicious. Reasonably priced and good service.

Bought a coupon for the family and enjoying a beautiful and hearty lunch. The food is delicious and good size servings. The house wine is OK and the service is very good. The strawberry crepes came with a syrup that tasted OK but not fantastic. Overall, very good value and family friendly.

We utilised a Groupon Voucher for dinner. Very quiet there in fact we were the only ones present dining for the entire duration. Service was good then again we were the only table. The lady out front seemed very bored either standing at the doorway, pacing the footpath outside or fiddling with the selection of music (far too loud). I... More

We bought a Scoopon and got really good value for four people for dinner. Those of that ordered seafood meals were quite impressed and my chicken dish was very nice. The last dish was pizza and it was oily. The desserts were really delish.

My boyfriend and I were looking through scoupon and bought a voucher for 100$ at 49$ which was awesome. To begin with the pizza at this restaurant is sooo good. Its thin crusted and although the toppings were quite scare it by no means took away from the beautiful wood fired flavour that made the pizzas absolutely delicious! I had... More

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor we thought we would give this restaurant a try. sat in a booth and one of the bench seats had a big tear in it, the dining table was a little tired. The menu was pretty ordinary really. The waitress spilt our wine from the bottle we ordered when serving and offered us another glass... More

We have dined at Michelino's Trattoria several times and we have come away satisfied every time. The food is Italian style, you can also get a good bottle of house wine at a reasonable price. Service is excellent and the prices represent good value.

We had a Groupon voucher which was amazing value. We had steak, calamari and a variety of desserts, which were all delicious and our waiter was so friendly and helpful. They also catered for my food intolerances. The place could do with an update to make it more modern, but it was still cosy and we had a great time.Thank... More

On a cold night we were warmed nicely by the pizza wildfire oven and a friendly charismatic Italian-melbournian. We had a lovely fresh risotto marinara with very fresh seafood and tasty veal chargrilled but not dry. Reasonable dessert and for a great price. The pizzas looked good. A charming atmosphere away from the Main Street so look out for Michilinos... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
