Food was pretty awesome with the 5 course 50% off deal, chips were very salty and the service was slow

We were a large group in for me birthday. I have been to many places for birthday dinners and the staff have always acknowledge it 2as a birthday dinner. We had to call for service for water and drinks. Great place will be back

I was booking for my wife’s birthday and when I was booking online , I had been asked Occassion and I selected birthday, therefore, I was hoping when we will go there they will ask me if any instructions for birthday dinner but they didn’t even ask or wished happy birthday to my wife. Anyhow we specially told in the menu no fish but we had been served fish also. Long wait between one to next cuisine. So disappointed.

Went there for the 5 course feed, not very exciting; Bread with fancy butter Dry beef and bread Long pause Gnocchi with mushrooms parmesan and a strand of hair Salad, fish, a slice or two of beef and chips. Tiramisu in a glass The service was slow in the middle and stupid at the end. After being shown by the manager how to use the register the girl still couldn't figure it out. There are so many good restaurants in the city and this is not one of them.

Good service but food was average comparison to the many great Italian places in Melbourne. Prices were good as we got the 50% off set menu special but wouldn't pay full price

First time at this restaurant, I chose it because it was 50% off the set menu (5 courses menu) through TheFork and the place seemed nice. Very happy with my experience, especially the quality of the service, great staff. Food was good, nice place, we had a great time. Mostly recommended!

I really enjoyed the meal and so did my partner. We had the chefs 6 course meal. It was great! You had me at the faccocia bread. The king fish ceviche was tatsy and the steak with wine jus was very well cooked and an awesome combination. I'd go back to try some of the other dishes in future visits.

Great atmosphere, liked the layout and vibe of the restaurant, didn’t feel like a hotel restaurant. It was great sitting around the open kitchen and watching the talented young kitchen crew use their skills, very much in sync and made it look so easy. Also, spoke to Exec. Chef Michael Smith really nice guy. Linen napkins, great crockery, we had the 5 course degustation which was fantastic, best home made gnocchi I’ve had in ages. Definitely worth a visit.

Soory due to the restaraunt being closed due to a private event our booking was moved to the bar. To which no one advised us until we arrived on level 1 for dinner. Very un happy that no one told us earlier as we had to be at a show hence early booking.

I didn't actually get to dine here as when my partner and I arrived we were told that the venue was booked out and not open to the public, despite the fact that I'd made a booking. This was not communicated to me prior.

Went with a friend and got: - Focaccia with prosciutto butter. The latter sounded interesting but it turned out to be just bits of prosciutto in the butter. Okay. - Braised pork belly. Not bad. Pork belly was rather dry but the condiments and sauce complemented it well. - Black truffle gnocchi. Nice flavours, but the gnocchi pieces were way too small to fully appreciate the dish as a whole. - Orecchiette with rainbow trout, lemon and fennel. Most interesting dish of the night. Nice zesty flavour. - Scotch fillet. This was the biggest disappointment of the night. The steak was dry, chewy and devoid of any juice. If there's one thing a steakhouse should get right, it's the steak! Other observations: Good ambiance, friendly service, long wait times. Food was okay but unfortunately there is no compelling reason to return (having used my Entertainment Book voucher!)

We think the service is very good and the food is excellent as well as the value hence the reason we keep coming back. You guys are great. The only suggestion is for you to have a bigger selection of cocktails.. But other than that, keep up the great work 😊
