    Always highly consistent in every aspect. Although there was a set price menu, we were able to select a la carte and have one dish each. As we were there for a business lunch this was more appropriate. However, the set price menu looked very good value for another occasion.

    Always an absolute delight to dine here. It is a very special occasion our family share for every birthday. Thank you for indulging us in our scallop obsession!

    Cafe Di Stasio s an old favourite. Delightful and friendly service, as always. And wonderful Italian food. But The Fork did not register my booking with Cafe Di Stasio, The Fork sent confirmation to me but then denied this when Di Stasio rang to see what had happened. Fortunately, Cafe Di Stasio was able to seat us, we made this booking for a family celebration a month ago and it would have been shattering if we could not have been seated. The Fork needs to lift its game to ensure bookings are communicated to the restaurant.

    Good service and ambience but for the price the food was disappointing. We enjoyed the entree but the main meals were ordinary to the point of losing our enthusiasm to finish the meal.

    Staff were polite and professional... the food was nice though very overpriced and very small servings. Sadly the neighbourhood is very rough in St kilda at present.

    When I lived in Melbourne previously I was here twice a week. Favourite being the lobster omelette. Now it’s a boring set menu. Neither here nor there. Won’t be going back. No dish was amazing at all and we had the full tasting menu.

    Avoid the profiteroles. Truly terrible and overpriced. Also a restaurant that charges you extra for paying by card! I used to love going to this restaurant.

    Great food, attentive and knowledgeable waiters. Deserves its reputation for fine food and service. Our meals arrived altogether and beautifully prepared. I’m coming back.

    Food very good. Atmosphere pleasant. We had a baby in a pram and the Head waiter was excellent arranging suitable seating. Unfortunately the other female waiter was quite rude and not at all accommodating of the pram, she was curt and acted as though the baby was an inconvenience! That was the only (but significant) difficulty with an otherwise pleasant experience.

    excellent food quality, but overpriced for relatively simple cooking and expensive drinks, faultless service but no surprises and pretty limited choice of Australian wines

    Incredible space and service. The food delicious. Their negroni’s are on point! Linguine con Gamberi is an absolute must have. Brilliant evening.

    Friendly professional service. Calamari was a bit chewy and took a while to get the bill but other than that was a lovely meal. Bit over priced though

    Well... have been going from day Ronnie opened and never tire of dishes. An institution, adore the waiters in their white tuxedos. But it’s the food, wine and atmosphere that keeps us returning a few times a year in an area that that exquisite and very iconic and true Melbourne restaurants

    This place is a bit of a trendy institution and always busy. Had the veal rib stuffed with fontina and ham (?) and then breadcrumbed. Quite nice. Our companions had lasagne and Milanese veal cutlets. All big portions and all quite nice but unreasonably expensive for what it is. The waiters are a bit snooty and got even worse when we didn’t tip, although they really didn’t deserve a tip.

    This is what a restaurant should be. Amazing experience from start to finish. Wait staff went above and beyond and the food was so tasty. Highly appreciate the effort the team went to

About the restaurant

They haven’t aged a day!

How many restaurants do you know that have been around since the eighties? Now how many do you know that are as current as Michelangelo’s twitter feed? Cafe di Stasio is St Kilda’s veteran eatery that’s as hip as any. Praised by both locals and critics, Cafe di Stasio is dressed to impress. Its moody lighting and sophisticated setting make it the quintessential inner-city hang out hip, neat and just the right amount of fancy. This place doesn’t shy from the contemporary, nor from hanging up work by the provocative artist Bill Henson. Cafe di Stasio does Italian cuisine just the way the Melbournians like it. They craft their pasta not once, but twice daily, and have special spins on classic favourites. Why not try some of their Bread maltagliati with calamari and radicchio or their home made Linguine with prawns? You’ll have the perfect wine to complement your meal, as these guys get their wine from the very best local and international sources. If you haven’t been to this St Kilda favourite yet, you better get on it.

Best dish: Casseula di ceci (Tuscan-style chickpeas, black cabbage and tomato with garlic bruschetta
