My niece was violently ill after eating spaghetti carbanara my pizza was not wood fired and so soggy that it was inedible. Even though I am a local had visited the café previously and wondered why at 8pm on Thursday it was empty no surprise afterward. I left a note next day but had no response terrible place.

This is a restaurant that I feel compelled to review because I think it is an exceptional local gem offering incredible value and excellent service. I think it is as good as any charming little restaurant I have eaten at in Italy. There is linen on the tables and plenty of staff on hand to make you feel like a... More

We had takeaway pizza and it was quick and tasty. The base was lovely and thin. Staff were good although it was quiet and felt a bit like all the staff stopped and stared while we ordered.

I admit, when I can I eat there a couple of times a week, either with friends or delivery - which is free. Unbelievable Gnocchi Poĺlo, in fact everything is really good.

Our third visit to La Q was extremely disappointing. (In fact, I almost allocated the one-spot TERRIBLE to our experience.) We and our two friends - who live in the area - were looking forward to a catch-up and good food. We certainly caught up with each other but the good food was gone and the service was dismal. On...

Three of us stumbled upon La Q on Christmas Eve, after arriving in Melbourne late in the evening. Nothing much was open in Kew, but we are so happy that we found La Q, as our pizzas were delicious. Vegetarian, Hawaiian and Margherita were all so tasty, with bases, including one gluten free base, which was the best I've tasted.... More

Nice and friendly with the kitchen seen from most of the restaurant. Good variety of dishes with nightly specials. Paella was one of the night's specials. Very good rissotto, but not sure I'd call it paella.

We were looking for an Italian restaurant in this area and after reading TripAdvisor reviews (yeah!), thought we'd give it a try. Its a small little restaurant, cosy in winter, but might be warm in summer. If there are little kids, there isn't much space to move between tables/chairs. This is a restuarant for quiet conversation & dining, intimate surroundings.... More
