Quite expensive but the food is very tasty. The service is amazing. The bruschetta was crunchy and tasty but missing something, can't place it. The kangaroo was a little chewy but full of flavour (highly recommend) Will go back in a group.

Attended for a friend’s birthday in a private room (phew - no COVID). Marvellous food and service. Dessert and coffee were good, too. I was hugely impressed by the wait staff’s memories, remembering everyone’s order when bringing out 20+ plates within a couple of minutes.

First time visit and the food and service was great. Had the antipasto plate to start with which had great variety. All our pasta dishes were excellent.

I have been to Fedeles many times in the past, and although the meals are slipping a group of six of us returned again for a special occasion. Our arrival was warm and friendly and we were quickly shown to our table, menus provided and...bottled water placed on the table. As a BYO advertised restaurant we took three bottles and placed them on the table. The waitress provided glasses and we opened the wines and served ourselves, something we did for the rest of the evening. The meals were largely adequate, certainly no where as good as they have been historically. The pasta was dry with only limited filling (ie seafood) the other meals were described basically as a bit bland. I scanned the account on the night, just an eye check. The following morning I looked again to see we had been charged $20 PER BOTTLE corkage. This is totally outrageous and out of sync with corkage charges in the area. I rang the restaurant and received the comment that the restaurant had looses due to COVID and the corkage rise from $10 per bottle to $20 was to compensate. I do not mind paying some form of corkage ( two others we frequent charge either $5 or $10) but $20 WITHOUT ANY WARNING, is just plain gouging It’s interesting to note that a message I sent to the establishment the same day remains unanswered after almost two weeks is a sign of the owners lack of concern for his customers. Goodbye Fedeles, it was reasonable for the many years we visited, but you have lost our custom, and that of the other four on the night, and possible a further number to whom we have spokenMore

Returned to Fedele's last week found quality of the food has slipped and was astounded when they charged us $20 corkage for each of our three bottles of wine. You only get gouged once, will not be back, there are plenty of other choices in...the area.More

Have not been to Fedele’s for many years and used to a regular diner prior to moving out of the area. Booked a table of 6 for lunch with some trepidation after reading some of the previous reviews. Pleasantly surprised, the meals were all excellent...and the service was spot on. Give this place a try u will not regret it.More

Visited as a group of 5. Service was prompt. We had the shared platter, duck rissoto, lamb shoulder pasta and duck breast roast. Everyone agreed the food was excellent. We'll be going there again soon.

Had a lovely meal as take away for a birthday dinner last night. Meals arrived on time and still warm. Quality of food was great and we chose well! - warm cobb bread with the dips, the veal tortellini and the lamb risotto was delicious...and the roasted parsnips a great choice as a vegetarian entrée. I chose the salmon with edamame dressing...very tasty. An added bonus is all came in compostable containers - TICK and brown paper bags - ANOTHER TICK. A welcome addition not to have to dispose all that plastic to create more environmental issues. By all accounts a very nice meal received at our doorstep, contact free and free delivery! Under this current lockdown period, good to support local restaurants and receive convenient and good value meals. Thanks guys :)More

A group of eight of us visited this restaurant on a Saturday night. Despite the Coronavirus scares in Glen Waverley the restaurant was almost full. Service was very good, seated promptly and water offered and served. For me personally the rather limited mains menu was...short of real attractions. I chose the spaghetti tossed with an oddesy of fresh seafood, capers, chilies, Tomatoes,Lemon Juice and finished with toasted breadcrumbs I failed to detect the chillies, capers Lemon Juice and the seafood was rather light on. Shared entree of Cob bread with Buffalo Ricotta and Comfit garlic paste.This was adequate but the toppings were very sparse However, others at the table considered their meals quite adequate. Its a comfortable setting but a rather uninspiring menuMore
