Italian
Agostino is modelled on the classic enotecas of Italy, including a bottle shop with local and international wines championing sustainability and drinkability that are available to drink in or take away. Our short, sharp menu reflects our family’s northern Italian heritage and there’s a compelling range of cocktails, aperitvi and digestivi available in Agostino and downstairs in our beautiful bluestone-walled cellar.
With a temperature controlled wine cellar and room for 50 guests, it’s the ideal space for private events or for savouring a rare wine from our extensive cellar list.

What a great evening to visit Agostino for the first time - World Cup eve. We knew the Italians had won even before they had touched the pitch with their boots when we sat at the marble table set in the stylish, simple and mood lit ground floor.
(Note: the ceiling detail which is elegantly cheeky but very clever)
Although there was a large party that needed a lot of attention in the cellar, we were equally spoilt with service that provided thickly accented descriptions of the food, making ordering much easier and suited to our pallets.
BEST prosciutto EVER - salted persimmon and Fritto combo -Bellisimo
BEST score of the meal - Corzetti - rabbit & marjoram - OMG
BEST Dolce - home made Vinenetta - the bomb!
Thank you The Beautiful Game for Italy winning - and thank- you Melbourne for locking us in so we could enjoy Agostino!

The food was not as good as what I expected . If a restaurant is promoting the business as an Italian menu , then they should be cooking food with Italian flavours. Most of the food had no flavour and lack of salt . The artichoke and the so called very watery polenta was awful . That should be removed from the menu. My Negroni drink was served in a wine glass with a huge wedge of orange . The delivery of our order was extremely slow due to the fact that the kitchen was serving the casual cafe area and the Agostino restaurant . That is very wrong .
You pay more and have much less options for a quiete dining experience but the service was awful . The portions for the pasta and risotto were entree size at main meal prices .

Very limited choice of main course meals, especially for vegetarians. Meals are ultra small. The food was so heavily salted that it was bordering on inedible.

Visited because of a Broadsheet article. The waitress was unable to clearly communicate with us. It was very hard to understand her. The pasta was very overpriced for the portion size.

Brilliant dining experience.
Order the calamari!
I'd recommend they increase the choices in ice cream (currently it's 2; vanilla and cantaloupe). Where's the chocolate guys?

Best night out in years: superb food, best wine list I’ve seen, and wonderful service. But for such a carefully considered enoteca, please turn the music off (or at least down). Everyone there last Saturday when we dined wanted to enjoy the food/wine, and talk. A bit hard when competing with the background din. Mentioned this to the waitress who apologised, but as I said to her, she doesn’t determine these things. Still, overall, a great night. Definitely coming back. If only for the octopus with peach!

Being kept waiting 20minutes past our booking time was not a good start. The service was poor from start to finish and slow. Having started late we also then had to wait ages for our meals, so we were very hungry. The food was good but not great. The pasta was the best bit, delicious but the serves are too small. Will not be back.

Our experience was basically a tester to see if we could book a future birthday and was not disappointed!

Melita was so helpful and informative in almost every facet of our experience (we even got to check the private function which is another experience in itself)

And the food is delicious! Look ... just go book a table and give it a try, won’t be disappointed!

Although good service was not impressed with menu selections or the quality of the dishes. The deli menu appears to be more “Italian” than Agistono

Very expensive for what was essentially a bowl of pasta. I think I will ask them to double check the bill as the more I think about it the more I think there was a mistake. Our waitress was wonderful but the male wine waiter was quite rude.
