We were happily surprised to find this amazing restaurant on the door step of our hotel! The owner made us feel so welcome on the first night, that we dined there for both our nights in Melbourne! The first night we walked in at 9pm...More

Dined here before theatre. It seemed busy so thought we would walk in and try it. Cafeteria style food, service impersonal and business like. More interested in turning over tables than quality of food. Just very uninspired dishes.More

Thank you for your observations Josh. For over two months we were transformed into a cafe by all the ladies and their daughters attending the production of Mamma Mia. The service, unfortunately, did become impersonal and business like as interest was only shown in getting...More

Hi tatec506, Thank you for your kind words. You often get back what you give. Thank you for being such a jolly fellow. It reminds me why I do what I do. It is always great chatting to people.

Fantastic venue and lovely staff, great place for a work function. The food had all the right intentions but just didn't deliver on the things that I love about Italian food: freshness and flavour.

Hi TaniaT, Thank you for the positivity. It is great to see that there is still some left out there in the world. We aim to provide consistency for the diverse range of clientele that we receive in our part of the Melbourne CBD.

What a great little find for pre-theatre dinner before going to Her Majesty's. Excellent service, accomodating pre-theatre menu, will go again.More

Hi Katherine, I am glad you had a great experience before going to the show. It is fast and furious before theatre, a show before a show really. The pre theatre offering is great value and built for efficiency. Perhaps we will see you next...More

I ate the $15 lunch special on a weekday – three arancini, accompanied by a rather salty cabbage salad. The arancini were flavoursome and had a good texture, crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. The restaurant was toasty warm on a very...More

Hi MelbourneKaz, The lunch menu is great value for money, as where we are in Melbourne dictates we need to offer value at lunch times. The heating works really well as you found out and the arancini are always a favourite. See you again soon

Pleasant atmosphere, good food, exceptional service. Offer pre theatre special meal packages. Great value for money.

Dined here for the second time while in Melbourne. We always shun the "formula" Italian tourist restaurants in Lygon Street andd appreciate the quieter pace of Mezzo. We settled on an Antipasto plate for starters; Arancini, cured meats, pickles, cheese etc. which was quite tasty....More

Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
