Pepe's Italian & Liquor
Our trip to Australia for our 30th wedding anniversary. We actually came here twice in the week we were in Melbourne that’s how amazing it was to dine.
We had a farewell lunch for a colleague at Pepe's and the food was great. Would definitely recommend this eatery to anyone looking for a pleasant environment either for a few people or a larger group.
Excellent would recommend to friends
Service food environment All fantastic
Looking forward to coming back
Great spot for lunch catch up with friends. Food came out all at once and timely. Good quality food, ambience, and attentive staff.
Very good. Menu is brief and focus is on the classics. Quality of food is very good. Interesting wine list
Lovely food, nice ambiance with the Italian liquor bottles, good service.
Pepe's offers a lovely environment. The food was very tasty. The service could be a little more attentive, particularly when they got busier.
Great food and wine
Fab service from funky staff
Faultless experience in an incredible restaurant. Cannot wait to come back!
Great food and atmosphere with excellent service. Good selection of cocktails and wine.
Visited Pepe's for our work lunch.
Two colleagues have allergies and these were well catered to.
Staff were very attentive, very professional and non-intrusive.
I ordered the fish and sides and it was delicious. All meals came out pretty much at the same time.
The risotto looked fantastic.
I shared the banana cake with one of my colleagues and it was amazing!
Great food, great atmosphere and attentive staff.
Perfect location for pre theatre dinner.
Food is always delicious and a table near the fire was greatly appreciated.
Service was fantastic, couldn’t fault it at all! Our waitress was lovely, super friendly and made sure we were enjoying our meals and as soon as we finished a drink was there to ask if we needed another. And all the food we got was absolutely delicious 😊 and seriously loved my colour changing cocktail!!!! Would definitely recommend Trunk to everyone 😊
Wow what an amazing place! Great food, staff and atmosphere. Beautifully cooked mains, and delicious deserts. Loved the pink pavlova!
Highly recommend this place, so pleased we found it. Easy to book online also.
I am a regular to Trunk...always enjoy the ambience,food,wine.Staff are always pleasant,it was cosy
in there Saturday night.My guests and I had an enjoyable evening...Many Thanks
Great food and atmosphere.
Great service and good.
Trunk is consistently good. It is my favourite pre theatre dinner venue, as always served promptly and depart on time. Food is very tasty, varied and easy to share. Staff very friendly and accomodating.
They accomodated our special needs, the food and wine were delicious, the service was perfect! Every time I’ve been to Trunk my experience has been the same.
Great meal for a quick get together over slow roasted meats, risotto and pasta. All our meals were great and the wait staff were friendly and attentive to ur needs. Highly recommended.
Fantastic dinner - great service, amazing food and the environment was great for a group of people. The noise was super loud, but if you’re cool with that - then this is your joint.
Great food, great wine.
Wonderful vibe and great place to catch up with friends for a more formal night out
We took an out of town guest back to the restaurant where our loved one got married so Trunk will always hold a special place in our hearts. Staff were lovely and food was great, there was a mix up with an incorrect dish coming out but a lot of apologies and some free bread were provided to make up for it. We didn't feel that our experience was AMAZING but it was certainly enjoyable and we would go back!
Some confusion about restaurant or diner, but we ate well, standard pastas, risottos and so on but our 5 party group was all happy with the result.
I have visited Trunk on many occasions with family and friends. Always greeted in a friendly manner and the service is spot on. Trunks food is ideal to share. The baba ganoush with flat bread is so tasty and the shoulder of lamb just melts in your mouth with exquisite flavours. Everyone I dine with is always very impressed with the food and eager to return.
Low key ambience inside, low lighting and low music, great for plenty of chatter around the table. Food was superb, excellent service and fantastic wine selection. Treated like a fancy restaurant but at a very reasonable price mark. Would love to go back again!
Espresso Martini’s were on point!
Salmon gravlax and zucchini fritters were delicious!
Great place for a romantic dinner
Reception service was great. We asked our wait staff for wifi password. She did not know and said she would find out. We are still waiting. We ordered a bottle of wine, initially we were brought a part bottle. Actually $60 was expensive.
I was so disappointed in my experience at Trunk. It was a special night so I booked online a few days in advance. We were not greeted at the door by a hostess so stood around not knowing where to go. We stood around and a few staff members saw us and gestured to move along the bar to the back. Along the way we were passed along by 3 different staff members before we were seated. The booking I made was not there so we had to wait for a table to be set. The meal was taken away before we were finished, we were not asked if we had finished eating and some of the plates were still only half eaten. After the table was cleared we saw two mice running around under a nearby table which made me feel really ill. If there were mice in the dining area, what condition was the kitchen in? We advised the staff about the mice and they blamed building works close by. I assume these matters should be addressed with pest control measures so mice are not running around the restaurant regardless of the cause. I was so disappointed in the whole experience as I had been before a couple of years ago and enjoyed the experience last time. I sent an email outlining my concerns but as four days on I have not recieved a response.
Great atmosphere. Great food! Lovely staff - they were willing to reduce the volume of the music to accommodate a member of our party who had hearing issues. Highly recommend!
Shocking customer service and far too long between entree and mains
The food was fantastic, we ordered pizzas they where yummy and dry light not like a normal pizza where you feel bloated after. We also order entrees which where very yummy. The waiters where all very friendly. We where a group of 6 and considering the venue the only downfall was that it was quite loud. We did however visit on a Friday evening. We however found when 3 of us 1st arrived it was much more ideal to mingle considering the noise level. Overall a great experience and would go back :)
Service was great, equal balance of attentive and time to talk without interruptions.
The food was fantastic! Great choices as well, including the wine list.
The only downside was the noise, however the building is historic so I get that soundproofing may be a problem.
Great time at Trunk. Good food and wine. Quiet vibes but I didn't mind.
Trunk has proven to be an ideal venue for pre theatre dining for us. The food is always appealing and extremely tasty. The staff are friendly and attentive. Will keep coming back.
great place to visit although it can get very noisy on a busy night.
