Very poor service. Ordered mash instead of chips with the main. They served fries. Called manager, was told they did not make mash and offered chips or salad. If you don’t have mash let us know when ordering don’t just randomly serve fries instead. Very slow service. Not worth the value considering the quality of the food. I have been to other crinitis where I had much better food and service.

Been here a few times now and keep coming back! Love the food, its very generous and they have some unique pizzas to make it interesting. The 1m, 2m and 3m pizzas are fun to look at and share as well!

Nobody there at lunchtime on a Friday. Chose a coonawarra shiraz, which surprisingly lacked distinctive character.

Delicious food but have felt quite a few times that once you receive your main meal you get little to no service and it takes ages to even get another drink or dessert menu. But it doesn’t stop me from going back!

Too loud, too crowded, no space on the table and for the prices they charge my expectation would have been better service. With regards to the food, in my view it is overpriced, average and there are nemerous options in Melbourne that are better; this is not nonna criniti’s home made food as they incessantly ram down your throat. Just a big restaurant chain going through the motions. My family and I will never return.

It was a really lovely pizza and I would come back for the pizza which is what we had. Our server was lovely and friendly but the lady who greeted us at the front when we first walked in barely looked up from her computer and did not smile, I feel this is the norm for a lot of restaurants. I understand they are under a lot of pressure doing lots of things at the same time but a smile would have gone a long way to make us feel welcome.
