Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Walked in and was pleased with the ease of finding a table and staying warm, ambiance was top notch with toasty fires and fairy lights. Although on separate phones we placed orders at the same time (what is happening to face to face service these...days???) we were very disappointed with the fact that one main came out 20 minutes before the other two + entree. We wanted to ask what was going on but there were not enough staff around as well. No server interactions at all actually, before, during or after our meal - felt very impersonal even though they weren’t that busy. Food was very tasty and probably would have raved about this place is we weren’t so disappointed with the service. Hopefully your experience is better than ours as the pizza and pasta truly was phenomenal.More

This restaurant serves great pizza, topped with cheese, tomato and freshly picked basil, however as much as that may sound appetising and seductive, the service and wait times sure weren't. We had to wait more than 50 minutes for our pizzas to arrive only for...them to arrive lukewarm. The pizzas we were served were great, not the best pizzas I've ever had, but pretty close. Overmore, this fabulous venue and the high calibre of food served by its skilled array of chefs was let down by higher than-normal demand and a lack of staff. On another note, I would like to mention that attended Trulli on Easter Saturday and was shocked to see they were surcharging every payment by 15% a ritual that is only allowed to take place on a public holiday, something that Easter Saturday isn't. Overall I commend your fine work Trulli, I'd love to revisit you sometime soon (preferably post easter).More

There were five of us, aged from 3 months to 35 to 36 to 70 to 82 and while it was crowded with happy groups, we had no problem relaxing at an outdoor table and enjoying good wines, succulent pizzas and amazing gelatis. Cannot wait...to return.More

Had gelati twice and was very nice. Plenty of flavors to choose from and generous servings. It was a shame the dine in restaurant wasn't open as I was dying to try the "bombette."

We went here after hearing about it at gurneys cidery. It was fantastic, high quality ingredients and delicious local beer and cider. The pizza was some of the best I’ve ever had. Really lovely staff and great ambiance with great tunes and fire outside. Definitely...what this part of Victoria needs.More

On our return from a site meeting scheduled at lunch time we needed a light meal before driving home to Melbourne. Really delicious fresh mussels with nice chilli touch and a fresh pizza exactly met our needs. Friendly enthusiastic staff.

Very disappointed at the direction this family favourite has taken. We’ve been going there for 7-8 years and due to Covid last year we were never in Meeniyan when they were open. The menu has changed dramatically and what was on there was unappealing. If...we hadn’t paid the deposit we wouldn’t have stayed. At $45 for some cured meat on a board and a small bread it was ridiculous. The rest was ok. Our waiter was sort of rude when we questioned the menu saying we could go across the road but that wasn’t the point. It was our little bit of Carlton in Meeniyan but no longer.More

My wife and I dined at this restaurant for dinner with friends to celebrate a significant birthday. We were warmly welcome and shown our seats, with staff being very friendly. The menu was vast and all made from local produce. It was hard to make...a choice, as was the wine list......lots to choose from. I went with the gnocchi, which was well presented and just delicious, full of flavours as were all the other main meals. There was nothing left on any or our plates. But the highlight for me was sweets.......the tiramisu was to die for! I have had tiramisu in all parts of the world, including many occasions throughout Italy, but I can honestly say this was the best one I have ever had......just yum! I could have licked the plate! The wine was lovely and I could not fault the evening. Well worth a visit. A well presented and tasty meal by very friendly and courteous staff. Highly recommend.More

My daughter booked this for anniversary dinner for 11 people.... it was superb.....set menu but everything on the menu was a taste sensation. The service was fantastic and we were very well looked after. They have a great drinks list as well. We could not...fault a thing.... even a couple in our group could not walk too far so was offered a lift to the restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble. We had two with dietary requirements and that was taken into account too. Keep up the fabulous work Trulli.... we love you!More

More formal than Moos which is nearby but still welcoming and with great food, wine and service. We had the 5 course degustation menu which was adapted very well for my dietary requirements. The selection was excellent- showing off a range of foods, styles and...techniques. James was great - being there when needed but never intruding. The fourth course was a half and half pizza which was excellent and we left full but content. The next day we enjoyed shopping in Trulli’s store on the other side of the road.More

A bottle of Italian wine to complement the meal and we...left happy and well satisfied with excellent and friendly too.
