About Bar Idda
Bar Idda is a Sicilian Restaurant located in the heart of Lygon St Brunswick East. Owners Alfredo LaSpina draws on his passion for his parents homeland to bring the rich Sicilian cuisine and cultural experience to life. From the food, the way it is eaten, the décor and the atmosphere at Bar Idda, you will feel as though you are dining in a back street of Palermo, or better yet, at Mamma or Nonna’s table.
"They always build as if they expect to live for eternity; they always eat as if they expect to die the next day."
- Plato on the Sicilian people, 5th century BC
Great food good value and nice vibes 🤌🏻
We love this little gem, every mouthful was delicious! Came here for an anniversary dinner & we weren’t disappointed.
Beautiful restaurant and atmosphere
Our experience at Bar Idda is always wonderful. Every time we go we are welcomed with a warm smile, friendly service and with ahhhmazing food. The set menu selection was well balanced and portion sizes were fantastic. The atmosphere is homely and has a positive buzz to reflect the mood. Overall, a memorable visit once again!
just a bit noisy near the door, otherwise perfect, love the atmosphere generally, thank you.
Too dark inside, bad lighting Very noisy
We felt like we were rushed through our dining experience. We had ordered the chefs selection and it all came so fast without any pausing in between. Our plates were being cleared with food still on them while we were still attempting to finish. We had a two hour booking so there should have been time between courses (we were finished in an hour and half). This was a special occasion dinner that felt extremely rushed. We have been before and not experienced this so I’m hoping it was just a bad night.
Lovely setting with beautiful, authentic dishes. Loved it
Delicious food, good portions, highly recommend!
Came for lunch for my 30th birthday. We were upstairs in a beautiful private dining room, the food was wonderful, couldn’t fault a thing. Will be back!
We were absolutely delighted with the service and the friendliness of the staff. The food on the Tasting Menu was stunning. Highly recommend.
Favourite restaurant in Melbourne.
Charming, warm and wonderful. We had an exceptional time and can't wait to come back.
Terrific evening after a very friendly greeting Should be on everyone’s regular list of eateries

Superb food and very friendly and helpful wait staff. Delightful atmosphere. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a most enjoyable evening.
It was one of the best dining experiences I've had. We were lucky enough to be hosted by the owner. He was passionate, knowledgeable, friendly and just bloody awesome. Cheers
One of my favourites, perfect for so many occasions, delicious food, wonderful service. A total dream in an incredibly competitive hospitality industry
We really enjoyed our experience at Bar Idda. The service was great and the food even better. Strongly recommend the crab pasta.
It’s our fav place to eat out in the north and the closest thing to Sicily.
Dinner was delicious and the space was beautiful. Staff were lovely and helpful.
