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.

Great food, risotto was tasty! Service very good, attentive and explained menu thoroughly. Staff knowledge of wine menu great as well.
Delicious food and amazing service. We will be back!
Loved the food! Gigis service was outstanding as always!
From the minute you enter you feel as though you belong there. Do yourself a favour, taste the burrata
Friendly service. Sublime pasta. Divine salad. Gorgeous desert. Interesting drinks.
Good restaurant, main for pasta was a smaller serve, but delicious.
Great food and the service was beyond flawless! Could not fault a single thing!
First time dining at Tipico, and this was a lovely experience.
The standout for me was the service, our waiter greeted us with the most amazing energy, was very knowledgeable and confident in making wine and food suggestions; this was great given Tipico is a relatively new restaurant and it is great to see the staff were well trained and passionate! The quality of service continued throughout the evening and made our night.
The pasta selection was a mix of traditional and eclectic options and was reasonably priced for quality produce and pasta made in-house (tick). I had the risotto but had good envy of the pappardelle ragu! It smelt divine!
The antipasti selection was mixed and the individual dishes didn’t have great synergy when paired together but, were individually quite tasty!
Overall, I will happily return for a mid-week dinner with friends!
Fantastic food ... great service ... great ambience ... highly recommend
The service was excellent. The wait staff were very knowledgeable about the dishes and wines on offer. Also very attentive. I tried something new. Having come from way out of town, was not aware of difficulty parking so was a little late but was no problem.
Exceptional as always. Excellent food and service.
We visited to celebrate my brothers return to Australia. Very friendly and informative staff. Great food and wine list!
Such amazing food and service!
Food was fantastic. Pumpkin tortalini, burrata to start with veal chop and lamb chops for main. The chat potatoes were sublime. Music got a bit over done but when asked to turn it down they obliged and we could continue our conversation. Lovely evening and staff were super friendly.
We had a great night at Tipico. Superb food, service and atmosphere, highly recommend
Nice food but on the expensive side for what it is. Not sure why restaurants ask if it is a special occasion and then you tell them it is your birthday and they don't give you as much as a chocolate. Buzzy atmosphere with nice lighting but gets very noisy due to all the concrete.
Great food, company and service by Gigi!
Outstanding service, impeccable attention to detail, and wonderful food! 5 stars
Amazing food and great customer service ! Gigi was fantastic
Delicious food and great service! Already looking forward to returning.
One of the best places to eat in Melbourne hands down! New chef has settled in well and has put some incredible things on the menu.
Amazing, food, relaxed and casual atmosphere and incredible service - not to be missed.
Foor and service were excellent but just too noisy for my liking.
Food and service were both excellent, location also easy to get to with lots of close public transport. Would definitely eat there again.
Exceptional service, excellent food and a lovely atmosphere.
Delicious meal with a great atmosphere. Marco was also excellent in accommodating some tricky food allergies. Thank you Marco, we'll see you again soon!
Excellent food and service as always. The King Fish is worth a visit alone.
First time visiting and everything was outstanding the ragu is a must
It is one of the freshest and best Italian restaurants in Melbourne. Fabulous people running it. Wonderful ambience. Long standing favourite of ours.
Average. Disappointing compared to previous visits.
We loved Tipico! So nice to have excellent service along with beautiful food. Delicious fresh pasta, great cocktails and very generous desserts.
We will definitely return.
First time there , food was great our waiter was great, the place was also great , I'd say overall we had a great night.

The food was incredible, the lamb was just to die for 👏🏻

The menu has changed and evolved The food was great with generous serves . A lovely special place to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary
Great value great food and excellent service
Really friendly, knowledgeable staff. Good food, lamb was very rare for my liking. Wine selection was great!
A great place for a meal with friends. Great service and wonderful food.
Amazing service and food! Loved our visit there
The crab pasta is devine.
Antipasto usually my favourite, especially buffalo mozarella. Do love it when they take it out of the fridge before service so it gets gooey.
Olives are not something I would ordinarily rave about ... but YUM. Soft taste not bitter nor sharp ... almost as if it was caramelised.
Excellent Cuisine cooked to perfection capturing the essence of each region of Italy
