    Food, service and atmosphere was great. Love that they range El Dorado Road and supporting small Victorian wine producers making unbelievable wines - the Nero was particularly good!

    Italy 1 Camberwell is a delightful place to enjoy a high quality night out; the service is always very caring professional and personalised and of course the food is delicious. Highly recommended for a special night out.

    Enjoyed a fantastic dining experience for lunch. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was truly delicious...the zucchini flowers, osso buco and lemon tart were stand-out dishes. Loved it, and looking forward to my next visit.

    Very enjoyable Sunday lunch - tasty and beautifully presented entrees. Good hearty mains and very elegant desserts. The Imported Nebbiolo was very complex and warming. All up a great foodie experience. enhanced by the suave interior and friendly, caring staff. ????

    Our waitress provided lovely, friendly service, however, other staff rushed us through, even taking my $24 glass of French champagne without me finishing! The entree and main were huge portions, and I suggest you arrive extremely hungry. Unfortunately, our table was near the kitchen and the constant walking past of staff, patrons and noise from kitchen deemed it uncomfortable evening. A shame as I chose Italy 1 as a treat for my husband who had returned from working on the bushfires in East Gippsland.

    Amazing food but the most outstanding part of the experience is the service and attention that the staff have and the lengths they take to make sure that everything is perfect. We had 7 dishes altogether and every dish was delicious, strong flavoured and perfectly cooked! The gnocchi has a lovely texture, and the osso bucco has a beautiful flavour. Thank you very much for such a lovely experience.

    One of the best restaurants in Camberwell, have never been disappointed with the consistent quality of food here. The ingredients always taste fresh and the service always friendly! Seating can be a little crowded given the size of the premises. Especially recommend the osso buco and spaghetti marinara.

    The food and service was excellent! However, the restaurant is very small and tables are far too close to one another which isn’t quite a fine dining experience.

    As usual, food was good. Perhaps a bit more attention to garlic allergy as same dish was ordered by 2 persons - one with garlic and one without and the one with garlic was served to allergy guest who just as well asked before eating whether her dish had garlic!

    Great ambience with a European feel. We took advantage of the Fork Festival to try this restaurant. Service was excellent, which was commendable, as the restaurant was very full - and this was before 7pm on a Tuesday night. Note, tables sit close to one another in European fashion and there was definately a buzz of conversations. Food was good, if priced a little on the high side. The zucchini flowers were a stand out dish. Felt like we were back in Italy eating those little gems! The saltimbocco was tender, though it was swimming in a thin "jus" that looked like beef froth which was a little off putting. The homemade gnocchi topped with Waygu ragu was great. Side serve of beans was tasty and a good compliment to mains. Our serves were generous so we skipped dessert. Overall, a good experience.

    This Italian Bistro consistently delivers fantastic food and outstanding customer service. It's clear to see why this iconic restaurant has stood the test of time, and it's an "oasis in suburbia"

    We had a lovely lunch at Italy 1 Camberwell with the fork 50% offer. The linguine & the fish were delicious. The arancini was so good. The calamary was too plain for us. We were so full at the end. Really nice service ????

    It has been a few years that we had eaten at Italy1 and we made a return visit with a couple of friends as a surprise for their birthdays. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without getting in your way. The menu has a modern Australian take on Italian classics. I adored the gnocchi with pork and fennel sausage, while my partner had the muscles (minus the chilli) which she loved. Our friends had the veal cotoletta and the calamari salad and the conversation hit a lull while we ate. Which is usually a good sign. The dessert course was as good as the first. I enjoyed a traditional Tiramisu and my partner is still raving about the chocolate pudding a day later. We were definitely not disappointed on our return to Italy1 and will make sure it is not so long between visits.

About the restaurant

Market Fresh Italian Fare

Warm and intimate with a comforting touch of familiarity—that’s Italy 1 Camberwell. Recently revamped by Darren Venn, a veteran chef of the Italy 1 kitchen, the restaurant has a fresh new look and still delivers when it comes to authentic Italian food that emphasises fresh, local produce of the highest quality. Darren brings market freshness right to the table with seasonal selections that make it tough to decide just what to order. But if you’re looking for a suggestion, the roast duck is touted by patrons as one of the best dishes, as is the calamari. The beetroot risotto tops the list, too. Room for dessert? Go for the tiramisu, a hands-down favourite. Italy 1’s atmosphere is relaxed, intimate and welcoming, making it a great spot for date night. That said the dining room is often packed with groups and family gatherings, too. Whatever your next occasion, Italy 1 Camberwell is the spot for satisfying, thoughtfully prepared Italian food that you just can’t get enough of.
