    Business dinner, felt very rushed in the service, from ordering to clearing dishes. Food was fine but would have liked a little more relaxed service.

    Food was ok, enjoyed the feel of the restaurant and the noise level was ok. The waiter we had was ok, but others were not friendly or engaging at all. Wouldn’t rush back here, I think there are plenty of other options in the city.

    Expensive for what you get. $28 for water. $27 for a cocktail that was 90% IceCube. Frito misto was excellent, as was spatchcock. Sautéed vegetables were too bitter to eat. Gnocchi was average., as was papardelle. Overall nice, but way too expensive.

    Fabulous restaurant with amazing food and exceptional customer service. Love the fact that you can watch the Chef’s cooking your food whilst ensuring that the highest standards of food preparation and hygiene are being meticulously executed. The food presentation is subsequently elegant and your palate will love the explosion of flavours irregardless of the meal that you have chosen. We ALWAYS have dinner here when travelling to Melbourne from Sydney.

    We had made a booking earlier in the week and when we walked in we were greeted by the rudest maître de I have ever come across, no good evening, couldn’t even look us in the eye. Did even get a chance to say we had a booking. Made us feel unwelcome even though we had a booking. We felt he was rude and treated the wait staff in the same manner. The wait staff we had above were above and beyond lovely and attentive. I have never written a bad review but we were really uncomfortable. The food was outstanding, but $26-$27 for a cocktail was a bit steep, I’m not sure there was any alcohol in them either. Compliments to the wait staff and chefs, as for the maître de please find a personality and a smile. Compliments to the lovely dark haired girl we had as our waitress, from Italy, I’m sorry I didn’t get her name.

    As an interstate diner I have been coming to the restaurant over a long period whenever we are in Melbourne. Over recent years the cotoletta has really decreased in quality. It's obvious that these are pre-prepared - maybe too far ahead - and that is affecting the quality. Although tender, the meat was very bland, greyish looking and not juicy and tasty as it should be. The crust was thin and textureless, with no "crunch" at all. It's a real shame as this used to be a quality dish. One staff member was lovely but the others were so so - not rude but quite indifferent. This is not usually the case. When the waiter enquired as to how the meal was at the end of the evening, I respectfully commented that the cotoletta is not as good as it used to be. His response should have been that he would relay that to the kitchen or management. Instead he looked at my plate and observed that I had eaten it all - implying arrogantly that it mustn't have been that bad. Well, for $60 I am not going to not eat the dish! This was very unprofessional. I make these comments with the greatest of respect and hope that they will be taken in the spirit they are offered. Kind regards.
