Love going to this restaurant. The owners are lovely people who are always very welcoming. The food is absolutely amazing. I love the food Everyone loved there food. Try the dolce rosso a beautiful red wine. We visit Melbourne once a year and this is a must every time we visit. The best restaurant in lygon street if not Melbourne.

Decided to go into this restaurant as we were walking past. First impressions were that it felt very authentic and cosy. Menu was quite extensive and moderately priced. Portion sizes were good. Staff friendly and attentive. Would come back here again when next in Melbourne.

We visited for my fathers 60, with a group of 7 of us
The food was beautiful and of the highest quality. The owner Mario, really provided the highest of service and was excellent with our 18 month old who was a bit agitated because he was teething. He provided ice cream and biscuits and played with him while we ate
It was our second time to this beautiful restaurant after visiting about 18 years ago
5 out of 5

What a great experience we had at Il Cantuccio! Such warm and welcoming owners, very attentive service. And the food was a delight. Don't miss the polenta.
Thank you!
