What a great place for dinner (haven't been for lunch but I'm sure it would also be good). A comfortable relaxed atmosphere with friendly professional service and excellent modern Italian food. Everything is delicious. It has quickly become one of our favourite Melbourne restaurants.

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
