Italian
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.

We had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and the ambience was fine under the “social-distancing” circumstances. Tipico’s fit-out and bathrooms are high quality too.

Service was amazing, the waiters were always there to recommend something to go with your meal if you haven’t thought of it and they’re knowledge of the menus were great. The food was so yummy as well. Recommend the crumbed veal, was cooked perfectly! Desserts and cocktails were to die for as-well!

The service on the night was very helpful and friendly. The menu has some great choices, starters tend to be a little on the big side. Pasta is homemade and delicious.

With the two sittings, the first diners need to be moved out at the appointed time as there is no where for second sitting diners to stand with social distancing.

We will return.

The most sophisticated food in the most warm and homely environment.
The most engaging and genuine team you’ll ever meet. Great wine list and they have the confidence to recommend the perfect one.
Ordered up a storm and everything was perfect. How often can you say that In a restaurant!?

Everything was really good. The food was delicious and the service friendly. The staff came across a little bit stressed when we first arrived, but it was very busy and many people lining up to get a table. So understandable. Due to how busy it was it was also rather noisy and my husband and I had a hard time hearing each other. But as people started to finish up and leave that got better too.

Over all, we both enjoyed our dinner and would recommend Tipico to our friends.

Tipico is one of my favourite restaurants and always at the top of my list. The hospitality and quality of food and wine is next level. The service is from the Directors through the extended team, it simply exemplary, as is the fun atmosphere. Warm welcomes. constant attention and incredible food delivers the ultimate experience each and every time. Tipico is the best on show in Melbourne and now my second home.

We had a table for 5 right in front of the window. We ordered 2 Cotoletta dishes served with pickled vegetables which was an absolutely amazing combination. We also had 2 Pizza's and 1 fish dish which were also good.
The staff were very friendly and efficient.

Would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting Very Good food and a good night out with friends.

We've eaten there twice now and will definitely be back. Excellent service, great wines by the glass and exceptional food. The eggplant entree is off the charts! So is the beef cheeks mains, can't recommend it highly enough.

High quality food. Eggplant parma with bread a great starter. Pasta dishes a little small considering how expensive. Cabbage is beetroot salad super bitter. Beetroot and fetta very nice though. Recommend ordering a few pizzas to ensure everyone is full. Also recommend not booking at 6.30 as you may be asked to leave at 8.30.

Good homemade Italian food nothing fancy, fresh pasta and pizza
Salads were good but not specialty. I would add at least two more with more ingredients to round out menu.

Staff friendly and efficient. The food was very good and tasty but main course came out within ten minutes of ordering! This is too fast we had just arrived and hadn’t even settled in yet! Was it heated up? Did they want us out ASAP? It felt that way.
Noise level was almost unbearable as we could hardly hear each other! Overall it was good because of the food and service but I’m not sure I’ll go back because of above reasons.

A trendy warehouse style Italian restaurant with good food and service. Very noisy though and I wish they had decent bread instead of doughnut things which were far too sweet.

5 of us had dinner at Tipico and the restaurant was fully booked out. The atmosphere was a little loud and the lighting a bit dim, but the food and wine were great.

I especially enjoyed the pizzas and the entrees, the pasta itself was cooked perfectly but the sauces weren’t completely balanced.

I would recommended this as a place for celebration.
