The dining room is really cosy with an open fireplace and olde worlde charm. The menu changes from time to time and the risottos and chicken parmas are excellent.

Very cool and interesting venue, good for an intimate dinner or a bigger group as the restaurant is well laid out. Interesting and delicious cuisine you won't find anywhere else. Awesome location at the end of ACDC Lane, definitely worth a visit at least once!


North Melbourne

Kate dined on Thu, 1st Nov 2018 (7)

Zucchini chips were excellent. Lots of outdoor tables on wide footpathw so food for alfresco dining and watching the world go by on summer days and evenings

Phat Stacks Burgers


Kate dined on Tue, 30th Oct 2018 (8)

Good vibes at this burger joint, very enjoyable and the onion rings are sensational

Amici Trattoria


Kate dined on Thu, 25th Oct 2018 (9)

I've been here 3 or 4 times over the last 20 years. It's a really cute and traditional neighbourhood restaurant with an authentic feel. Very cosy atmosphere and quite romantic. Lovely service staff. The food is always excellent, generous servings and it's great that you can BYO. We'll be back again for sure.

Mister Bianco


Kate dined on Thu, 11th Oct 2018 (7)

The food is inventive while still being traditional Italian flavours. They could use more staff as it’s a popular place and it can get very busy when the restaurant fills up.

Interesting South American influenced menu with plenty of variety. The service is top notch and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. Very stylish and fun restaurant.

Burma Lane

Melbourne CBD

Kate dined on Tue, 24th Jul 2018 (8)

The food was unique, creative and high quality - an exciting mix of Asian and western flavours. The restaurant interior and decor is very cool. I’d come here again.

The Auburn Hotel

Hawthorn East

Kate dined on Sun, 8th Jul 2018 (8)

An old fashioned but stylish dining room with a fire place and cosy feel. The wild mushroom risotto was excellent.

Geppetto Trattoria

East Melbourne

Kate dined on Fri, 1st Jun 2018 (9)

Lovely authentic Italian food and friendly service. An old fashioned restaurant that still has a fine dining feel.

Shizuku Ramen


Kate dined on Fri, 11th May 2018 (9)

Amazing menu of food and drinks - so many delicious looking dishes to try. Japanese food with a bit of a twist and originality. Love the craft beer selection. Cosy and groovy atmosphere and good service.

you’ll find unique Japanese fusion dishes here that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.

Taxi Kitchen

Melbourne CBD

Kate dined on Sat, 28th Apr 2018 (10)

Fantastic atmosphere - it’s a big restaurant and very bustling but you can hear each other talk easily. The open kitchen looks great and the views of Flinders Street Station, the Yarra River and the Arts Centre while you eat make it feel very Melbourne. Would be a great place to bring someone from out of town. On top of that the food is excellent - creative and delicious Asian/European fusion dishes. The service is excellent to, you feel very well looked after by the staff.

Bay City Burrito Hawthorn


Kate dined on Sun, 22nd Apr 2018 (8)

Their burritos are the biggest I've ever seen, and delicous

Mister Bianco


Kate dined on Sat, 21st Apr 2018 (10)

The food, wines and service were all exceptional and the restaurant is intimate with a lovely ambience. The saffron and abalone risotto was a highlight that I would order again.



Kate dined on Wed, 18th Apr 2018 (6)

Great specials - usual pub fare steaks, parmas etc and happy hour drink prices. It’s good that they host an open mic night.

Charcoal Lane


Kate dined on Fri, 23rd Mar 2018 (9)

If you want to have a unique dining experience in a relaxed yet stylish atmosphere Charcoal Lane is a good spot. You won’t get food like this anywhere else as the ingredients and dishes are all unique using native Australian ingredients.

Osteria Ilaria

Melbourne CBD

Kate dined on Sat, 6th Jan 2018 (8)

Great service - friendly and fast. We didn't have to wait long for our food and they spaced out the dishes well so we could share all of them. Highly recommend the Baby octopus with n’duja, Paccheri pasta with crystal bay prawns and sorrel, and the Zucchini flowers with jerusalem artichoke and mizuna. I would order those again when I go again.

Sake Restaurant & Bar Hamer Hall

Melbourne CBD

Kate dined on Sat, 9th Dec 2017 (10)

Had the $98 set menu for two with Sakes signature dishes including the tooth fish with miso paste which was to die for. The food and cocktails are all original and high quality. Service is friendly, professional and fast. It was expensive but worth it, I’d definitely come here at again. The decor is cool inside but on a nice day the alfresco area has great atmosphere watching the world go by. Highly recommend this place for a special occasion to impress or treat yourself or just a long lazy lunch or dinner in a great location.

Italy 1 Camberwell


Kate dined on Fri, 24th Nov 2017 (10)

Traditional italian food and drinks of the highest quality. Fine dining, impeccable service and the decor and ambience of the restaurant feels very European. We loved this restaurant so much the first time we dined here that we decided to book it for our wedding.

The dishes are unique and have amazing flavours and textures - you won't find the same dishes anywhere else. It's a cool experience finding the restaurant hidden down an alleyway with graffiti, and inside is kind of funky but high end dining and romantic feel at the same time. The waiters were very nice, attentive, efficient and the food came out quite fast. I brought a friend who was visiting from Perth who wanted to experience some upscale Melbourne dining. I got the recommendation from a friend who has been to a lot of restaurants and now I want to go back again asap.
