We always love coming here for a very good Italian meal. The staff is always attentive and Daniele even remembers what wine we had last time as well as the cocktails.
It's a simple menu but everything is delicious. They serve my favourite dessert -a Venetian specialty - a Scroppino. It's even hard to find it on a menu in Venice.
The tables are well spaced apart, so you don't feel crammed in.
Whenever, we're in the city, this is our No 1 choice.

The restaurant was packed out on a freezing cold Monday night. The staff were very accommodating and found a seat for me. I had the most delicious and filling lasagne. It had a beautiful tomato sauce, perfect meat and cheese baked to perfection. Exactly what you want on cold winter night.

Well it was our last dinner in Melbourne. Sunday 06.08.17 soo far our modest foodie desires had not been met. Well from the moment we walked in the vibe was amazing. We felt as though we were the only people there the maitre d was amazing and our waitress wonderful. Next the wine picked for us was spot on. The food was fabulous. Desert to die for. What a way to finish the visit. A bloody great place 15/10

Had dinner at Lupino. Food was really good with a special mention of the desserts. Service was outstanding - we asked for a quiet table and got one. We wanted to talk initially and the waiting staff left us alone while we talked. Very professional. Last to leave but never felt they were chasing us out although they did lock the door behind us! Will return there next time I'm in Melbourne.

Having an Italian background, we were advised Lupino. Bookings are essential as it is always full! The staff is very accommodating. Good wine list. The arancini tasted beautiful and the gnocchi gorgonzola outstanding... However I was disappointed in the Spaghetti allo Scoglio and I found the restaurant a little noisy. However, all in all, a good Italian restaurant in the heart of Melbourne.
