This has to be the best Italian restaurant I've been to. The pasta is fresh, and the staff are brilliant. We need more establishments with service like this.

You would think that to make a Bloody Mary it is not rocket science and for a restaurant bar that has quite good reviews how disappointing our drinks were! Also how much can you water down tomato juice? After all it's not that expensive and at $20 per drink I'd expect something more than a transparent loaded with ice watery... More

Something for everyone! We shared 2 main dishes which they provided small plates for without fuss. The only downside I would say is that the drink service was a little slow. We ordered drinks and food at the same time, and the drinks and food arrived at the table around 5 minutes apart. However once we tasted the food that... More

A last minute decision to eat out somewhere on Flinders Lane had us turned away from a few other restaurants here. We got the last available table here and we knew right away that we were in luck. Everything was superb, especially the pizza.

No doubt about Melbourne, they know how to look after diners. We were welcomed and seated without any fuss. Almost like we were regulars. This is the first time - we have tried this restaurant, and only came across it by accident. We are glad we tried it - without knowing too much about it. Well worth it.

We loved the ambiance, the friendly staff and the great food. We enjoyed our time here for dinner and returned after the Comedy Festival show in the Swiss Club upstairs for supper.

I went here for a work function earlier this week. The food was amazing. The service was great, apart from being a little bit squishy there was nothing else I could fault. I will certainly go back with my hubby next time

Excellent service, enjoyable music and atmosphere, good selection of foods and drinks. Always a busy restaurant and the vibe was, well it was the vibe. Enjoy the level of service and the garlic pizza was one the best I have had. Very reasonable price too and accept entertainment app discounts.

The caramelised onion arancini was superb, followed by the lamb fetuccini, where the lamb just melted in my mouth. My husband had the bruchetta followed by the gnocchi, both of which were excellent. Our wine was also very good and well priced. Great atmosphere as it got busier, and service was friendly, if a bit slow. Toilets have seen better... More

You might have seen us down Flinders Lane, in the historic Swiss House building. It's the red brick building on the corner of Duckboard Place (ACDC Lane). You can walk or tram to a number of theatres, concert and sporting venues from our front door, which means we're actually the perfect stop for drinks and a bite to eat before or after the show/concert/match. Plus, we take bookings which can be hard to find in our neck of the woods. This is our story... Pizza, pasta and mozzarella are our thing. We love having guests over to visit. You can come in off the street or give us a shout beforehand to book a spot. We're very accommodating, and not to blow our own horn, have a certain something something. Oh, and we have one of the most handsome Italian's in Melbourne as our pizza chef. Fact.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
