Visited Maldini's recently for a family dinner, we had a great night because the service was superb, in particular Melissa, her attentive and jovial manner added to the experience and enabled us to enjoy a great dinner as a family.
The food was fabulous, equal to better than many of the so called leading Italian restaurants of Sydney or Melbourne.
Great value and one of my favourite restaurants in Hobart.

The pasta we had was good (a bit much though) and the dessert as well. It seemed like our waiter didn't feel like working that day. The restaurant was almost empty, yet we got the table next to the toilets. We didn't feel like having a starter, so we just ordered a main course and the waiter seemed a bit grumpy. Luckily we got another table (and another waiter) because I felt cold. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in for a good pasta and don't wish to spend much time in a restaurant.

We dined here because it's in the middle of a busy strip of restaurants and had a reasonably attractive menu.
Although the place is advertises serving Italian food, I a, not sure if it would pass the minimum requirement for an Italian joint in Melbourne.
The service is pretty poor, we walked in and looked around for some waiting staff to talk to, but gave up after a few minutes and just grabbed a table that seemed available. Eventually we managed to grab the attention of one of the waitresses and organised a couple of menus. Our drink orders took forever and we had to wait about an hour for our meals, even though the place was half empty. We had the linguine, which was ok and the fish of the day (the potatoes had no taste and the asparagus was mushy and about 3 minutes overcooked).
There are plenty of other options available in the neighbourhood, so we won't be rushing back any time soon.
