Service was very good and the 'Italian style' food was excellent. They certainly know how to please their customers. They have a pretty good variety of entrees including seafood and even pizza.

Reviewed 6 August 2018

After reading the glowing reviews we had great expectations.What we got was a so called minestrone soup that tasted like a corn chowder, and a cauliflower dish with hardly any cauliflower and pasta that had no taste.Waste of time and money.

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

Yes, only wine only M-Th. Sorry don’t know the corkage charge as we have only been on a Sun when it’s ‘licenced only’.
