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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
