Lupino is simply one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. From the minute you walk through the door you feel at home. Their service is warm, friendly yet not intrusive. We had the past carbonara which was made with pork cheek. It was hand downs...More

Tucked away opposite a multi-storey carpark. It's name is not on the outside of the building but marked by an outline of a wolf's head in neon red. Starters start from 14 onwards. The cauliflower fries are a must-try. We had their special grilled octopus...More

Great ambience, one of those cosy, welcoming, sophisticated restaurants for which Melbourne is renown. Great location, easy to find, convenient if traveling by tram. The food is just wonderful, perfect pasta for a hearty, warming meal on a cold night. We tried crumbed cauliflower and...More

You always receive great service here, the food is excellent, its not overly expensive and the atmosphere is very nice, not too loud, not too bright, just right. Great stuff. Recommended for couples, groups, solo and friends. Nice for a business lunch too.

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
