Lovely dinner on a quiet Thursday night. Food and wine was lovely. We enjoyed arancini, meatballs in tomato sauce, lamb shoulder, seafood pasta, tiramisu and chocolate mousse.

My first visit to L'Artigiano. We were a group of 7. The food was delicious but took over an hour to come out. There wasn't a lot offered on some of the dishes - you would have to buy a side of your choosing. The overall ambience was lovely. Would've just been nicer to eat a little sooner but this could have been an issue because we were a larger group? Would be interested in going on a Sunday to listen to the live music

We visited here with a small group for our second visit. The food was again sensational. The service was great, much better than our last visit. The menu has a good selection of modern Italian dishes to choose from and the wine and drinks menu is extensive. I will definitely be back again to enjoy this lovely restaurant.

Nice decor and atmosphere, quiet and pleasant. Food was quite good, serving sizes were a little small for the prices. Service ok, not as engaged with our needs as I would expect - we asked for a little bread for our child, were told there was none but we could order a $14 pizza if we wanted bread. Then someone else gave us some (fairly ordinary) bread anyway as a standard part of the meal (not in response to our request, more that the first staff member appeared to either not know about the bread, or preferred to sell us something more expensive). We asked for a jug of (tap) water, they gave us a glass of water (and yet water jugs were given to neighbouring tables). General perception that good service is dependent on how much we spend.

Amazing food and great value! The new extension made the ambience really nice and there is a lot more room now (it was a bit crowded before). Lots to choose from on the menu and it is all DELICIOUS.

Lovely restaurant with great ambience excellent wine list and delicious food. The only setback was the service was poor. This may be because in my opinion they were under staffed. I would return but would hope either the service improves or they staff the restaurant properly. Overall despite the staffing issue it was a great restaurant

I invited my brother and niece from Sydney and my brother was very pleased with the lamb dish. I have eaten at L'Artigiano three times now and it is by far my most favourite restaurant in Melbourne. Why? The ambience, food quality and service are truly outstanding making the dining experience most pleasurable, which enriches my relationships with my family and friends. Thank you for the continued privilege of dining at L'Artigiano.

I would recommend the restaurant to a friend however the night we were there, the service lacked considerably. Not sure if a staff member called in sick or not but with only 1 person behind the bar and the other manning the floor, they were struggling. I asked for water while perusing the menu not long after being seated and 10 minutes later was still waiting. I think it’s pretty standard these days that water glasses are filled as soon as you sit down. The food was great but the waiter was quite perfunctory and without enthusiasm. Nevertheless we both enjoyed our meals. It would be a lovely restaurant for a romantic meal. I was there with my elderly mother.

We've dined at L'Artigiano several times and have never been disappointed. The ambience is warm and friendly with just a touch of European sophistication. The staff go out of their way to accommodate one's requests. Service, faultless.
The Menu at L'Artigiano is interesting and seems to cater for most tastes & needs. The quality of the food is consistently high.
On Sunday night, our table ordered, Slow Cooked Roast Pork with Scallops on a bed of Sweet Potato Purée; Lamb Cooked Two Ways; Seafood Pasta, and a Bambini dish of Gnocchi. The dishes arrived together. Again faultless.
We've been fortunate, in that some of our visits to L'Artigiano have coincided with live music nights. The music is very much in keeping with the atmosphere at this very lovely venue. We look forward to our next evening at L'Artigiano.

After two outstanding visits to L'Artigiano I brought my family there for a birthday celebration. Those that had not been before liked it very much though I did not think it was quite as impressive as on my earlier visits. We did have to wait a long time once we arrived for our drinks orders to be taken though it was a busy Friday night service. All meals were good though my previous main dishes here - especially the "lamb two ways" - were better. We were very pleased to be seated in the smaller quieter section to the right of the entry as the main room gets noisy on busy nights.

Our new favourite place for family events. Couldn't fault anything about the restaurant at all. Only criticism would be with the booking app open table not having the option to add children/high chairs to our booking and having to contact restaurant directly.

Food was fantastic! Had the meatballs to start which were a bit rustic and very moist and the sauce was beautiful. Seafood linguine as a main which was also very tasty and came with bread to soak up that delicious garlic butter sauce. And then we rolled out after we had a dessert platter which was SO awesome. Oh my cocktail, a twist on a negroni, was on point (and much cheaper compared to most places)
P.s. I loved the music. Authentically spanish

The food at L'Artigiano is really delicious and authentic Italian, the service prompt, and the atmosphere is cosy. It's a great local restaurant to be able to walk up to and have a genuinely decent meal. The wine list is also excellent.
