    Gnocchi was good but tiny. Penne ragout was not cooked properly and tasteless. They issued the meal again, exactly the same again. Waitress was awesome but place is over rated.

    Central, full of atmosphere, always full of people. Well-organized team, beautiful, simple food, lovely surroundings. Wine price highish but the special pinot tasted great ( and that from a purist)

    There is a reason why Il Solito Posto has been business for as long as they have - it is a fantastic place to eat at. On every trip to Melbourne we always eat at Il Solito Posto and have never been disappointed. Staff are engaging/food is just great.

    The food was fine but the place was really noisy and crowded. We had to shout to each other to be heard. Too noisy for me.

    A fantastic Italian restaurant! This restaurant truly offers delicious food and excellent service. The pasta is cooked to perfection, and the sauce is rich in flavor. The toppings are fresh and generously portioned. The oysters are also fresh which brings a sense of happiness with every bite. The ambiance of the restaurant is cozy, and the staff is very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant! I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

    Pasta was so salty it was hard to eat. Pushed through it. But taste buds were dead the following day. Not what I expect for over $100 a head. I have eaten here before and it was great, looks like chefs have changed or gone down hill somehow

    Outstanding dining experience. A leader in service, food and value. With so much competition in Melb's CBD, the stakes are high. Il Solito Posto delivers and exceeds expectations. We loved it!
