Contemporary Italian
We are a neighbourhood restaurant in the Dandenong Ranges township of Avonsleigh serving Modern Italian fare all day, every day. We are dedicated to cooking seasonally and using local and Victorian ingredients, wherever possible.

We cater for large groups and families, as well as informal get togethers and intimate dining.

It is our belief that good food should not be exclusive. Due to our highly skilled kitchen and front of house management, we are able to provide a high level of service for our customers.

For the little ones, we have a custom built play area (currently closed) and 2 kids party rooms (currently closed).

Generally everything was excellent, however we did receive our main course at the same time as our entrees. We were not charged for one of the entrees and one of the drinks because of this so were somewhat compensated which we were grateful for

In particular I noted that the waitress was very friendly, patient and seeing some other patrons' disrespect for the COVID prevention related instructions, I thought they were very gentle.

Rather quiet due to limited Covid-19 seating requirements, we enjoyed a lovely meal and are happy to go back due to the attentive staff and fresh ingredients of each dish on the menu!

Antipasti was great. Mains had flavour but no substance, I had slow cooked lamb and struggled to find any actual meat. Dessert was in between.

Good food, as usual. Staff felt a bit more ‘sales-y’ than they used to be.

By far one of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time. The service was impeccable and the friendly staff made sure my girlfriend and I were comfortable and were satisfied with our meal. The menu is your classic italian menu with a little twist and the pizza was light, full of flavour and generously portioned (The regular 10" pizza is more than enough for one person or 2 little ones). The dress code may be casual but the level of service and the food would make you think its fine dining at its best, if you're thinking of coming here I would definitely recommend it!
