Once upon a time there was a very humble Pizzeria in suburban Melbourne, largely responsible for the start of the Pizza Revolution. It was 1997 and the pizza battle lines were drawn.

With a move to Carlton and the opening of our iconic Espresso Bar, evolution ensued. The modern Italian Gastronome D.O.C. began to grow with the opening of its flagship D.O.C. Carlton and the opening of a beautiful concept store in Mornington, soon followed with the authentic D.O.C. Delicatessen in Carlton.

Award winning Artisan Pizza may be our platform but the real theatre is provided by the unashamedly Italian D.O.C. team.

D.O.C is an institution, first time back in a very long while and still does not disappoint. Staff are still fresh off the boat but as usual extremely attentative and they add to the charm. Food was great just like we remembered and the atmosphere was typical Melbourne eatery.

If I had one critic, would be if upstairs, at peak times, it can be hard to hear oneself or talk to someone at the other end of a 6 person table.

Terrible service, rude waiters that really look down their nose at you. Really disappointing. They had no patience for a group with kids. Food was ok but multiple waiters were so rude we will not be going back.

The radicchio salad was simple, very fresh and delicious. The pizza was outstanding definitely the best we've ever had in Melbourne. We'll definitely be back on our next visit.

Great pizzas and value! Did sit near the toilets which was slightly annoying as door kept slamming every time someone entered

The male head waiter was incredibly rude and made everyone feel ill at ease.

This place is worth it just for the pizza dough alone. I will definitely be coming back!

True authentic Italiano! Delicious. Very busy, very popular. Not a lot of room to move around so wouldn’t recommend for babies/toddlers.
Leave the kids at home!

Pre-arrangements were well done (map, confirmation etc). Table was held for us despite us being late. Food and ambience was good, service good except difficult to find wait staff once tables filled up.

The food is always great and the staff warm. One of family members is gluten free and says DOC's GF pizza is the best she has had!

Everything was great but the waiter we had for the first half of the evening. He was just rude. I have had this same waiter previously and he is always miserable, and the moment you may ask for say, an extra chair, an extra glass, or simply a different glass he will pull a face or slam it on your table.

Also- we ordered several bottles, I ended up having to open them all myself. Common DOC- get your service together. This lets your excellent food down, which is a massive shame!!
