Couldn't believe it when this great cafe was unexpectedly bright and open at night . . . it's a fantastic place for a friendly and relaxed meal. Despite being a buzzing cafe during the day and quite informal, it magically acquires a discreet elegance in the evening. The menu is small but interesting, and the food itself meets every expectation and more. If asked, the staff give great help with wine suggestions paired to your order. We love it - and keep going back.

Last night my family and I celebrated my fiancée's birthday at Officine Zero; what an experience to remember, we all had the BEST time!
Absolutely delicious Italian food presented beautifully, attentive and caring staff, beautiful ambiance with great music...it was a little slice of Italy, and for a moment I felt I was back there.
Finally we found our new local Italian restaurant, and we can't wait to go back!

Great place for take away, but dine in it’s uncomfortable
Little, noisy, and doors open at all time, and even thou it’s freezing cold.
I booked a table with the intention to have a cozy lunch, but ended up finishing my coffee and rushing into another place for lunch.

This was a lovely surprise choice. We selected it because it wasn’t too far away from the theatre - Chapel off Chapel. The food was just perfect. We shared dishes and it was a great idea. Not your usual massive pedestrian menu. It has thoughtful food with wonderful flavours. Wine selection and quality great. And the service was flawless. This little place is compact and intimate but friendly and had a lovely atmosphere. As you can tell I would definitely recommend it for a preschool dinner with a couple of friends.

Each dish was really great, so the food was excellent. Staff were lovely. I did put a note that our booking was for a birthday though, which I think was overlooked as we weren't initially given a very nice table and there wasn't any other acknowledgement. That said, we were offered a nicer table inside about 10 minutes after initially seated so that was great to sit the rest of the night inside.

Fantastic secret of the locals. Really personal service. Home made pasta is particularly excellent. Their pesto a particular favourite of mine during lockdown takeaways. So glad to see them regain their dining-in mojo.

The food was very tasty and authentic. The meatballs were delicious and tasted exactly like my mums. Lovely and friendly staff and the service was very personable. My husband also liked the Daylesford Pale Ale beer. A very positive dining experience.

My husband Scott & I always enjoyed very much!!
Some new staff don’t know much about menu details and too much pushing coffee, she came out table many times....
But overall, we like your cafe anyway!!
