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.

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.
Excellent service (Thanks Marco & Louie). Delicious Italian cuisine. Perfect ambiance at Tipico for those looking for a great dining experience. I highly recommend.
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.
Great pasta! Nice atmosphere.
Wow! I loved Tipico!! The food, the staff, the ambiance everything was so great! We had a really nice evening!
Dinner for 5 went seamlessly. Service and food wonderful. A bit noisy but it was a Saturday night!
Second time there and enjoyed the experience again!
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.
Great service, super friendly and great service. Food delicious and fun.
Authentic food with great ambience and excellent service.
The food and service were just exceptional. An amazing night with a repeat a must
Yummy food, great selection of dishes, gluten free pasta was great - all delicious
We went for a family birthday dinner to Tipico, and could not have been more impressed! Fast and friendly service and delicious food and cocktails. Would recommend.
Amazing food and attentive service. We brought friends from overseas with us wanting to show them Melbourne’s best new Italian spot and they were super impressed.
Delicious. Great service. Nothing was too much trouble.
Overall a delightful experience.
The room was full and Friday night ambience was fabulous. We shared the pizza. I tried the pork cutlet which was delicious. Our waiter was friendly and made it a fun night. Definitely recommend Tipico.
Excellent service! Food was delicious but I must say what made the difference was the lovely girl that was serving us! Super friendly and genuinely doing her best so we could have a good time!
I've had two great dinners here. The staff are consistently friendly and helpful when deciding over what to eat or drink. The menu is relatively small however the offerings are all delicious, fresh and there is something for everyone.
Delicious meals and fabulous bar with friendly, professional and efficient service. An Italian restaurant well worth frequenting!
sunday evening was quiet night so no noise problem. Our food was good and fairly priced
Excellent food and service! Great for a group dinner. Great location.
Love the fresh pasta! The place is chic but not too mondaine. The staff is really nice and accommodating!
For a restaurant it was extremely noisy, the tables are very wide so almost hard to talk across the table. Need to do something about the acoustics - too loud
Great food & Great Service as always! Staff are super friendly and attentive and the food is amazing, in particular the pizzas, if we could have fitted in dessert we would have as they looked divine also. Highly Reccommend.
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.
Ridiclously delicious food and service to match! Will definitely be back soon
It was terrific. Authentic, fresh, exciting and delicious. Very attentive staff. Priced suitably. Keen to come back again as soon as possible.
A gorgeous, contemporary fit-out and lovely service from our waiter, Louis, but the food was disappointing and overpriced.
Overpriced - food was average
Delicious food, beautiful fit-out and great service.
Exquisite food. Clearly fresh, seasonsal ingredients cooked perfectly
Amazing service, my family and I had a great time!
Great pizza, delicious dough. Nice wine selection and tasty desserts.
Love this place so much have been 3 times now and the service and food is amazing!
I think the ambiance is nice. Friendly staff but a little overpriced small dishes for the cost.
This was our second time at Tipico and it didn`t dissapoint.
We will definetly return.
Great casual dining wth fabulous traditional Italian food! Fun busy vibe with great service!
TIPICO offers a modern twist on some Italian Classics. Perfect for our catch-up between 8 friends to share some delicious entrees (Meatballs and Salumi board a must), pizzas + pastas. Trendy fit-out, cosy atmosphere, friendly service and great wine, beer and cocktails!
Loved it - great food, attentive professional service, cool design and vibe. Thanks team Tipico, awesome addition to the neighbourhood dining scene
