Based on High Street, just one block from Chapel, Tipico is a new modern-Italian bistro.
Tipico reflects the new Italy, the Italy that’s now in Milan, the cool new vibe. Not the classic restaurant with Italian music playing and cloth on the tables. The flavours coming out of head chef Daniele Colombo’s kitchen will be relatively classic, but with some modern finesse added to the plating.
What you can expect to see alongside some classic pizzas are dishes like kingfish crudo, orange dressing and mint; battered sardines with polenta chips; or tagliatelle with spanner crab.
An Italian and Victorian centred wine list explores a variety of regions and wine makers alongside local craft beers and cocktails.

Food was lovely, big serves for entree’s & pizza dessert is huge, too big actually. Would be nice if there was a Champagne on offer by the glass.
Tables were too close together it wasn’t nice hearing other people’s conversations & also having a really loud person sitting right next to me spoilt the night.

A very stylish little restaurant with a cosy feel to it. Sit at the bar if you like and watch the Bar staff create some fancy and mouth watering drinks . Great menu leaning on the traditional but with a pinch of creativity. Perfect pasta, fresh seafood, thin crust pizza and vibrant salads.. Love it

Very friendly and welcoming staff. They remember repeat customers and their preferences and are very knowledgeable about the product. Food is always fantastic - can’t get past the eggplant parmigiana and salumi pizza. Great cocktails - my favourite is the gmcp which is quite spicy. Can’t wait to go again. Staff make it a great experience every time.

Crayfish pasta dish was beautiful, kingfish with orange didn't quite work, perhaps not to my palette. Staff helpful & friendly. Wine list could offer a more extensive range.

Nice food. We picked the olives, calamari, arancini balls for entree. For mains, it was split for the crab tagliatelle and beef ragu. We all agreed the crab pasta dish was ‘too fishy’ however the pasta was aldente. The beef Ravi sauce was great but the pasta was under cooked for all three of us. Other than that, atmosphere, the service was lovely.

We absolutely LOVED Tipico! The drinks were great, the food was delicious and it has a lovely ambient vibe. The waiters were very friendly, accommodating and well-versed on the menu. A few of our guests have dietary intolerances and they were very helpful in providing alternative options. Plus, we were pleasantly surprised with the gluten-free pizza base! Tipico serves authentic Italian cuisine and it's definitely the best Italian in the Prahran/Windsor/South Yarra area. Definitely worth the visit! And don't skip dessert - it was incredible.

Excellent food and very good attentitive service. Oh but very noisy with concrete floors and loud music. The music needs to be lower and a better choice of softer music so you are able to hear the dinner conversation. Good vibe here.
