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 dishes like kingfish crudo, orange dressing and mint; battered sardines with polenta chips; or tagliatelle with spanner crab.

Beautiful venue with delicious food. Service was wonderful and welcoming. Found the venue a little loud but otherwise a perfect evening.

Great food and ambience , place does not disappoint
Great food, lovely staff and amazing vibe! I would 100% go again.
Amazing food, never disappoints. Staff are great, accommodating and friendly.
The market fish I had was lovely but the broth of apples & greens accompanying the fish was not tasty plus the greens felt dry. It did not seem to suit the fish.
Tiramisu was very ordinary.
Service was average & one waiter did try his best but did not seem friendly nor attentive.
The 2 types of pasta we had were absolutely delicious & so much flavour. Would highly recommend to have the pasta.
Good food. Service average. Long wait for food on a Thursday night.
Great ambience and energy. Can eat at bar or nestle in to a table. Waiters very helpful with great knowledge. Food very good.
Highly recommend Tipico as this is one of my favorite restaurants, Marco and staff well done.
The food is spot on, every time. Always look forward to coming back.
Fantastic experience, waiters were fabulous, food was outstanding and good wine list. Can’t wait to go back!

The food is out of this world, Worth every dollar. The staff are so friendly and really passionate and knowledgeable about the food and wine they are serving.
Everybody should experience this restaurant!
The staff were very friendly and most attentive when we arrived. Food was delicious but felt one meal, served as a main was a little light on. Nevertheless, the flavour was intense and most satisfying.
Everything was perfect about this place. Keep up the good work
The boiled veal with tuna mayo is amazing. Everything was super yum and great value for money. Staff are super friendly and great wine selection
Amazing food, great vibe and great service! Will definitely go back.
A wonderful addition to Southside restaurant scene.
The food was spot on perfect, with excellent staff and cool ambience. Loved the background music, truly setting the tone. Special videos for the incredible pasta special topped with truffle butter and truffle shavings….. OMG moment!!
Food was stunning!! $65 p.p decidiamo noi special was heaven !
Real treat !
Service was very poor. We were about 10 minutes early for our booking. The front person bluntly said you have to wait outside. Which is understandable during covid. However, he was rude in tone, and didn’t think to offer to turn the outdoor heaters on for us. When our booking time came around, we went back in where we had to stand around and wait 15 minutes for a table to finish their dessert. There should be a buffer time between bookings to avoid this. When the table was finally free, the wait staff had to clean the table. It took at least 5 minutes to wipe and set a couple of plates. When we finally sat down 20 minutes after our booking time, it took at least 10 minutes for someone to come to our table to give us a menu. It then took another 10 minutes after that to have someone come around to take our order. All whilst the large table next to us was being served promptly as the owner and/or waiter clearly knew them personally. After we had been given our food, we weren’t approached again. Not even to check how everything was going or if we needed another drink. The table next to us was being approached constantly. We decided to leave straight after eating our food so we waved over one of the waiters and asked how to pay. This particular waiter was the friendliest person we had spoken to all evening. He brought over a tray and told us to leave our card on their and someone will come around to collect it. 10 minute later, no one did. After having enough of waiting around we walked up to pay at the front. Unless their approach to service changes, we will not being going back. Pasta was undercooked, too.
Exceptional food, the veal with the tuna mayo just amazing. Great selection of wines and very friendly helpful staff. Cannot wait to go back
Excellent night. Good food and good cocktails.
I recommend the Florentine Alchemist.
By far our favourite Italian restaurant. Food is amazing and service is even better. Highly recommend
Great food, wonderful service. I will be returning
Beautiful food and service. We will be back. We shared our food, which was a lovely way to taste more. Nothing was a problem for the staff.
