Smallish in size, tucked away in the side street, the Italian food served in this restaurant never fails to impress everyone I bring. Entres- pate with crispy bread and pickled onions to die plus deep fried prawns and calamari served with aioli sauce👍👍. They pastas and risotto dishes are all amazing. Cannot single out any dish that we don't enjoy.... More

One of my favourites in the city. The ambience is warm and cosy and the food is absolutely delicious! Often end up here for weekday lunches - great spot for an informal catch up with friends or a business meeting!

We had not been here for about 10 years, but came for a birthday lunch for my partner, with our vegan teenage daughter. Weekdays at lunchtime, you can't book ahead for casual dining (the Caffeteria) and it's very busy so we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. The waiter was very organised and efficient, and whipped us... More

Truly exceptional Italian. Food was the star but so was the ambience service and vibe of Il Solito Posto. We loved every course we had from oysters to entrees to our pasta and finally desserts. Great place to relax and forget about the woes of life. Cannot wait to go back and saviour it all again.

We both had the spaghetti with prawns special at lunch and both of us found it excellent. The seasoning was great with capers and pistachios added.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
