    Great to see be back after the lockdown. Along with the great food and service we thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful music provided by Ciao Bella which created great atmosphere.

    we have been going to this restaurant for years. Always enjoyed the quality of the Food & Atmosphere. You can actually have a conversation and hear each other! Service is also very good.

    A wonderful night, celebrating a special time with family. The spacing of the courses was nothing short of perfect.

    We went at 6pm Friday night. It was chaotic to say the least. Frenzied, noisy and very lack luster service. 70 people. Given menu and ordered food. Food without a exaggerating was there LESS than 10 minutes later! This might sound good but the linguine marinara was barely warm, suggests pre cooking, no bread offered till we asked. Still waiting to order wine. Tables jammed together, no smiles we couldn’t wait to leave !! We have been many times before but will certainly think twice before returning again. Couldn’t even tell them as it was so busy so difficult to get anyone’s attention. Not a great start to our evening out. Very disappointing experience albeit a very expensive one for not much.

About the restaurant

Game on!

Il Duca is a local favourite in East-Melbourne: loved not only for its tasty Italian food, but also for its convenient location - super close to Melbourne’s popular sporting grounds. Run by Dominic and David, whose family has been in the area for over

three decades, this restaurant boasts superb service and fresh flavours! Pop in wearing your team colours and sample their fettuccine con agnello, handmade pasta with lamb ragu and roast peppers or the misto di pesce, a grilled seafood selection served with fries and salad. They even have a function space, so you can bring the whole team with you for a special night out. So come calm your nerves before the semi-final, or celebrate a win with a post-match glass of vino. Either way Il Duca will be there cheering you on!

Best Dish: vitello al funghi - pan seared veal scallopine with wild mushrooms and white wine glaze.
