Let's get out of Asia for once, ltalia this time🇮🇹

There's no mocktail on the menu, but you ask, they can surprise you. It's very delicious🍹

Oyster $4 each, very fresh. Most of the pasta has entrees or main size, there are many pasta with seafood which are i love, took me a while to pick one. At the end i chose linguine seppia $34.50. It's homemade squid ink linguine, the texture is prefect, matching with the calamari; fennel seeds not everyone like it, but in this doesn't has very strong or takeover the taste. 🦑🐙

One of the special on the day was snapper, but it wasn't very special. I wanted to order the tiramisu, then the waiter extremely recommended the panna cotta, so i tried it, wasn't the impressive, especially i'm not a big fans of poach fruit, there were poached pear.🍐🍐

The molten chocolate cake was warm and melting inside, well it is what it should be.🍫🍫🍫

We had not been to il Solito Posto for a few years ...more fool us !! It's such a homely, lively eatery tucked away off Collins Street. The food was excellent and the staff just add to the enjoyment of the evening. Excellent in all regards. Will not wait two years to return. Highly recommended.

Tucked away in the basement of 113 Collins St. this is as authentic Italian as it gets. Even with its limited post- COVID menu, it delivers tasty Italian food. Friendly service with attentive staff!
