    Heard about DOC from friends who said they did the best pizza’s in Melbourne. Was extremely disappointed by the two we were served. Based were soggy and the tomato sauce poor. Everything was overpriced including a $19 ticket and pear salad. Service efficient and friendly though but the food justnnot good enough

    A Taste of Italy in St Kilda: D.O.C St Kilda - Pizza & Pasta Bar The menu boasted a tempting array of traditional Italian dishes, each prepared with the freshest ingredients and expertly crafted to perfection. From classic pasta dishes to mouthwatering pizzas, there was something to satisfy every craving, not to mention the delicious Wine paring. Left feeling grateful for the unforgettable experience that D.O.C St Kilda had provided. Whether you're a local looking for a taste of Italy or a visitor seeking an authentic culinary adventure, this charming restaurant is a must-visit destination in St Kilda. With its exquisite cuisine and unparalleled service. Thank you so much ! Will definitely be back. Went with my parents and grandmother as an early mother's day dinner and everything was perfect!

    A very enjoyable lunch on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Service was both friendly and obliging, pizzas had well-cooked bases & crusts and tasty toppings. A fantastic location but perhaps a little pricey, particularly the wine list.

    Lunch at DOC was a delight. The pasta was al dente and the pipis were a perfect complement. I was very happy with the quality and variety of regional, Italian wines. My friend and I loved the whole experience and we will definitely return. Thank you to all staff.

    Have been so excited for the new DOC opening in St Kilda. Sadly I was disappointed with the food. We had the scallops and prawns for entree. Looked so good and I was hungry and salivating and it just didn’t hit the mark. No real flavour. We ordered the seafood charcoal pasta. My friend ordered it gluten free and it was not very good. Mine was better however when I compare to a similar dish across the road at stoke house, I’ll def not be returning to DOC. Service was great and staff were so friendly and attentive.

    Food was excellent (we didn't have pizza, just pastas, starters and mains and desserts, so can't comment on the pizzas). The booking experience is quite off-putting. One feels one is entering into a contract not unlike purchasing a house! Also the service of everything at once meant that my main course was delivered before my starter. Other than that, the service was excellent (all Italian wait staff were friendly, engaging and knowledgeable) and so was the food. We will definitely come again.

    We ate here before a show at the Palias and were well served within the time, wiothout rushing. Good pizza nd the other food was excellent - recommend the prawns and the meatballs, and the cabbage (!). Not cheap, but a nice feel, and excellent Italian-skewed wine list.

    I visited the restaurant with my family, and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent; the bucatini with clams and burramandi were among our favorites. The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs. I also liked the selection of original cocktails, each named after different venues in the city. The pistacchio calzoncino is a must-try for dessert. Everything was delicious.

    I have eaten at DOC many times in Mornington, and it's very good. Infortunately the food in St Kilda was below par and I would not eat there again. The Tempura dough on the Zucchini Flower was thick and soft, and the pizza crust was also extremely soggy.

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at DOC St Kilda, and I must say, it was an absolutely delightful experience from start to finish. From the moment I stepped through the doors, I was greeted with warmth and hospitality that set the tone for the rest of the evening. The ambiance of the restaurant is both inviting and sophisticated, with a charming rustic atmosphere that immediately transports you to the heart of Italy. The dim lighting and cozy seating create the perfect setting for a romantic dinner or a gathering of friends and family. The view of the horizon as the sun set is a true asset to the venue. Now, let's talk about the food – it was nothing short of spectacular. Each dish was a masterpiece, bursting with flavor and made with the freshest ingredients. From the heavenly pizzas with perfectly charred crusts to the mouthwatering pasta dishes that melted in your mouth, every bite was a culinary delight. The Barramundi Crudo is a must try without a doubt, a nice stray away from the typical kingfish crudo that has been done to death at other places. But it wasn't just the food that impressed us – the service was impeccable as well. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive, and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a memorable dining experience. They guided us through the menu, recommended excellent wine pairings, and made sure that every need was met with a smile. Any of the fish plates paired with a nice white wine is a must have, we personally tried a bottle of the Verdeca from Puglia, super fruity and aromatic wine. Overall, I cannot recommend DOC St Kilda highly enough. Whether you're craving one of their famous pizzas or, searching for a cozy spot to unwind in front of the beach after a long day spritz in hand, or simply looking to indulge in a culinary adventure, this restaurant exceeds all expectations. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

    Food is good. But the in-your-face service, with the exaggerated Italian accents gets annoying after the first greeting. Calm down and just let us eat in peace. Salesman-style upselling borders on rude. Haven’t done much to the room since taking over from previous tenants, which was disappointing. Excellent location and a menu that had enough to please everyone, although a tad overpriced for what you get.
