Would be great if you could adjust your tasting plates to be per person if you have a large booking. We had 6 people and would have been great to have 6 portions of each thing on the antipasto and salumi boards instead of trying to cut things into pieces to share.
Other than that wa a great!

Absolutely delicious and 110% genuine Italian! Friendly staff and a very lively atmosphere - your resident introvert might get a bit overwhelmed. Free slice of cake with accompanying music & fanfare if it's your birthday!

Terrible service. Slow and unhelpful. Standards have dropped considerably since a year ago when we used to dine weekly. Terribly overpriced. Whilst pizza was traditional and tasted good, a Margherita that would have cost, say, $2 - $3 to make, selling for $20+ is excessive. Limited drink menu and no pasta of any type available.

Booked a table at 730, told them we were coming 15 minutes late. Not only did they change our booking to 8 o’clock but told us endless occasions 10 more minutes 3 times, were setting up for a table and it’s our fault we came late? Had to tell them my booking was at 730 even showed them emailed because they change it to 8 o’clock and wouldn’t believe me. Told me I was causing drama even then the table was ready at 815? It’s still late for 8 o’clock.

You can taste the food is rushed. No care in presentation, the quality of the Ingridients has dropped and it’s over priced. The bottle of wine was $72 - at that price I expect a good tasting red - it was not. I could not eat my veg lasagna, thankfully the waiter took it off the bill after my feedback.

This place was great when they opened, now it feels and tastes like a fast food chain - they want people in and out as quick as possible to generate a higher turnover.

Everything was very good , just thought the cheese platter compared to the meat platter was over priced for what was served up. The pizzas and salads we’re very good and overall I would recommend to everyone.

We organised a surprise birthday dinner for my sister's 21st, and it could not have been better! Amazing food, great service from the waitstaff, and the special birthday music was just the cherry on top! Thank you to DOC Mornington for a fabulous evening.

I generally have great experiences at DOC, the food is always great and was again last Thursday, however for such a quiet night with many waiters and waitresses on duty, there service was very slow and our table had to seek out the waitress to come over multiple times. Plates were left empty on our table for 15-20 minutes before someone finally came over to clear them, and the staff were not very busy just did not bother to come over it seemed.

Booked a table ahead of time and got a table away from the main restaurant, out of sight and out of mind. Due to this, service was incredibly slow. Drinks took forever, it took over half an hour to order. And a bday surprise had to be reminded twice, AND still took over half an hour after the second reminder. Overall, incredibly sub par unfortunately.

Venue is too noisy when fully occupied. Pizzas we had were not great and were quite bland. $23-$28 for a pizza to feed one and
$7.4 0 for 1 soft drink is well over priced.

Pizzas are always yummy, especially the crust!!! The place was quite full when we were there so the food and drink order took a while but it's a great place to hang out and people watch.

Usually we love dining here as the food and wine and ambience are always great. Authentic Italian fare served by attentive staff. However yesterday we had to beckon staff on numerous occasions after waiting longer than we should. Our waiter showed zero interest in our party (a quiet family of ten - different ages). No smiles, comments, suggestions - zilch!! Had it been our first visit, it would have been our first and last.
