Great Dining experience. The waiters were very patient and understanding with us. The team commented that the food was great and it was definitely a 'good find'.

Staff were very friendly, attentive and accommodating. Food was great. Atmosphere at outside laneway tables is vibrant. Music was nice too. A great night out.

I was charged an extra 50 cents on my salad. My order was pear rocket salad but it was bland and had limited visual aesthetic. I thought I could make the salad myself. We went for a colleague's birthday. The guy took us one picture, which not everyone was looking. Extra credit card surcharge was not advised. I think overall, the service was overpriced. Never going back.

We were seeking a great, authentic Italian restaurant in Melbourne for a casual dinner and booked a table of 5 at Il Nostro Posto. We arrived to find that the laneway was filled with similar restaurants and 'hawkers' at every entrance trying to entice you into their restaurant. Our restaurant was around 60% full and we had a table on the second level overlooking the laneway. Any other indoor table would have been a disappointment but the large glass window made our spot acceptable. The food was solid and was of a good size and flavour. The service was pretty hit & miss - we waited a long time to order drinks, food arrived quite quickly and we had a few different people attending the table. We ended up getting up to pay the check as there was no-one in sight when we were trying to finalize the bill. The restaurant felt very touristy and was reasonable value...I would not recommend but may suit those looking for an experience that has a European piazza feel (busy outdoor seating with lots of people hassling for you to join them).

I had the dinner with a few friends from overseas. We sat in the outdoor area with the warm sunlight between around 6.30pm-8pm. It was bright and we enjoyed it! The staff are so warm and nice from the moment you walked in. A gentleman introduced chef's special with clear explanations and hospitality. I had home made ravioli and gelato for dessert. The thick layer of tomato sauce blended well with the pastry and the cheese. I loved the gelato with dry apricot!
