Staff were warm and welcoming, we’re happy to explain the menu and point out their favourites. The arancini balls were beautiful and delectable, so many flavours in one mouth full especially when accompanied by a crisp glass of Riesling. The olives were a little disappointing...More

A true neighbourhood gem. Food is consistently good, and service professional. Menu changes seasonally and weekly so you know you're getting what's fresh. Highly recommended

The food and service here and always excellent. The menu is varied. The wine list is great with a moderately priced selection or higher end stuff if you'd prefer.

St. Kilda
St. Kilda is an iconic beachside suburb and one of the
most culturally and economically diverse of
Melbourne’s neighbourhoods. It is a traditional haven
for musicians, artists and writers, drawn to the
European ambience and fresh ocean breezes. At night,
it can have an edgier side, but by day, it features a
relaxed vibe – the market stalls, boutiques and
outdoor bars display St. Kilda’s easygoing attitude.
