The food was absolutely delicious. Best gnocchi I have ever had, it just melts in your mouth. The entrees were outstanding. Service was excellent. Great location. I cannot fault this restaurant at all. I will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
