Exceptional food. We had a selection of small snacks, entrees and shared a few pasta dishes. Loved the oysters with grilled cheese. No disappointments, dessert was also a highlight.
My visit was the second on successive days with different guests. No greeting or Welcome, indifferent to needs - especially gluten free which had been discussed prior to arrival. Food mediocre and service inconsistent. the Cotoletta Milanese was the worst I have ever seen presented - burnt, dry and tough; rather like a small tile. All in all both visits were extremely disappointing and appalling value for money. A place to be seen in rather than eat in.
A nice lunch, but no signage or number on building outside so a little hard to locate. Prices are on the higher side, and wine list extremely comprehensive, but again on the expensive side with very few bottles under $100.
Welcoming, friendly and accommodating staff. Pasta is delicious and would recommend the vanilla ice-cream dipped in chocolate for dessert.
Regular customers at Cafe Di Stasio in St Kilda and thought we would try Citta for the first time. We had a table that was uncomfortably cramped right in front of the entrance, where I had a waiter squeezing behind my seat throughout the evening. Our meal was unnecessarily rushed, the entree arrived within 10 mins of ordering, and the entree arrived before we had even received the wine list. Very disappointed and we are unlikely to return.
I have never written a review before, but this was hands down the worst service I have ever experienced at a restaurant. Had a booking, arrived on time, but was hastily sat at an unset table. 25 minutes passed before we received a menu or asked if we would like water or a drink. Asked 4 times to speak to the sommelier to order a bottle of wine. Did not see him again after his $300 bottle recommendation. Not once was our table actually waited on. For every little thing we wanted we had to grab someone’s attention - plates, cutlery, ordering food, water, drinks, everything. Not once were our glasses topped up by staff. Decided to forego dessert as could not bear to spend more time or money in the place. Has to ask 3 times for the bill and took 25 minutes for it to arrive. The second person stood chatting behind us for 5 minutes and never returned. Shame because the food is great, but service is not commensurate for a 2 chef hat establishment (or a $570 bill for 2 people!).
Good food, but way too crowded and noisy - to the extent the stretched and distracted waiting staff forgot to offer us the night's Specials and were simply not engaged nor prompt with service. We won't be going back, however we'll return as regular diners to Cafe Di Stasio in St Kilda.
Fabulous food but sloppy service. There is no signage out the front so hard to find
The enthusiasm, great service and great food which characterised Di Stasio St Kilda for years has been passed on to La Citta. It was excellent. My only criticisms are the stark decor (but that's just my taste and others like it) and noise (because there is no sound attenuation it is difficult to hold a conversation without shouting). But all round, it is very good
Amazing restaurant with fantastic authentic Italian food and brilliant staff! We had the best night sitting at the bar eating and drinking and laughing!! We will be back for sure!! Told all our friends to go there!
Great italian food
Outstanding classic Italian dishes. Excellent and very attentive service. Beautiful Italian wines to compliment the dishes. Highly recommended.
Absolutely stunning Italian food and wines. Attentive and excellent service throughout the dinner.
overall I love this restaurant. The dishes I have are always good but one of my friends pasta dish was very ordinary
Lovely food . Excellent service. Will be back often
I thought the service could have been more attentive. Staff were friendly, but we I felt we were left to our own devices a little in that nobody explained the menu, how it worked etc. It’s a large menu and it’s not overly clear what’s the entree, main etc.
They need to remove one table in each of the 2 rooms to achieve perfection. It is just a bit too crowded and we witnessed two server collisions.
Very noisy place Too much pasta and not enough meat : fish to select
I come to Di Stasio Citta at least every week and haven't found a better restaurant in the city yet.
A fantastic restaurant with excellent service and food. We will be back!
