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.

under new management - the mains were delicious and we had the pear and chocolate dessert - scrumptuous. It's a change of menu from what we have been used to, but it was lovely nevertheless.

Unfortunately, I had to delete my glowing review of December 2020 as what was once my favourite local Italian has been taken over by new management again, this time who have dumped the original recipes and changed the menu, and it feels like the love...has gone. The new guy is friendly and tries very hard to please, but why oh why, would you change things if you can’t make it better? After having to explain what a Napoletana pizza was, we received a tough, doughy base ... not the beautifully thin, crispy pizzas we’re used to here. The simple, tasty ‘al funghi’ has been replaced with a sloppy, tasteless, creamy concoction that I found inedible. It was replaced with a bolognese, which was kind of ok but too salty and my pasta was drowning in the sauce, so again, I couldn’t eat it. My friend’s pork belly was tough, but the veggies were cooked well. It’s such a shame to think that after decades of delicious, authentic Italian food, yet another Toorak Village gem has been dumbed down and made bland.More

Came down to Melbourne to visit our son and his girlfriend, needed a local restaurant. From walking in and being greated by a team of enthusiastic staff and the owner, really genuine service wanting to please and make a memorable dinning experience for us all....The food was delicious and well presented, my wife had the lamb cutlets with salad and chips, which was sensational. My son had the pork belly which was also a hit. His girlfriend had veggie parmagina which was delicious. I had the seafood marinara which is one of my all time favorite meals, this had generous servings of mussels, prawns, scallops. The owner came out at the end of meal and asked how our meal was and was keen for any feedback positive or negative. We gave him positive feedback and would definitely be back next visit!More

We enjoyed our first visit, not least because of the wonderful customer service provided by our helpful bubbly female staff member the night of our visit (sorry I can’t remember your name). We’ll be back to try some of the other menu choices. The price...is right, the customer service is outstanding and the food was delicious. Thank you for a lovely night.More

This is our local Italian go to place. Recently changed hands after many years so was worried the food and service would change, deteriorate. Good news is the food was good, if anything pasta was better, pizza’s also OK mine was about 85% compared to...previous ones but willing to give them a go. They have made minor changes the place is brighter and they have kept the main front of house personnel so the same friendly service supplemented with family support. Overall a good local family restaurant providing good quality meals at reasonable prices. A bonus is it is BYO.More

Food was superb. Dropped in with my family as we were in the area and received a warm welcome. We were in and out within 30mins, service was good and the food even better. My family of 4 ordered 1 main carbonara, 1 large pizza...and 1 Italian salad (although each dish were on the small size). Would differently go back, but I’d order a pizza for myself next time.More

Fiorino's is my local restaurant. Perfect for a simple Italian meal when you can't be bothered cooking. The vegetables are never over cooked, the service is always warm friendly and efficient and the pizzas are a standout. on Saturday started with a small vegetarian pizza,...thin crisp crust, delicious filling followed by an excellent veal dish.More

Enjoyed a lovely meal at Fiorinis. Restaurant seats about 50 people and can get fairly noisy when full. Menu offers a good selection at reasonable prices. The size of meals is adequate and quite tasty. Drinks are well priced. staff friendly and efficient and there...is some outside seating.More

We dined here twice and were impressed. The food is largely Italian and it's genuine Italian fare. Great pasta, pizzas, salads and meat dishes. It's tasty and delicious, full of the flavours you would expect. We had a variety of dishes both nights and there...were no complaints. The staff were very welcoming and we received great service. It's a pity it's not in Dublin!More

Fiorini's is situated in a busy part of Melbourne, and is a perfect spot for that quick pasta meal when you can't be bothered cooking after a week of work. We have found service excellent, food served quickly without fuss and every meal I've eaten...there has been delicious. Well done Fiorini's😊More

RATED The food overall is up to expectation, middle of the road. What is not expected is the disdainful arrogant attitude of the white haired owner when challenged over the overpriced bruschetta. Unbelievable that they would charge $13.90 for 1 tiny piece . Nowhere are...you warned that the serve is a single small slice. The bruschetta itself is good, but the price is absurd. Spoiled an otherwise good meal.More

I’ve been to Fiorini’s on two occasions recently and only went back the second time due to its geographic convenience and excellent, friendly service. Service is very important to me when dining out and this restaurant is a perfect example of where great service would...have me not against going back again, which would otherwise be the case as the pizza is very ordinary.....and that’s being generous. It’s possible the pizza base a pre-frozen commercial bases and overall I can prepare much better pizza my self at home. I would go back only due to convenience and service but not for the food.More
