    This was our first "dine out" following the self isolation period. We could not have chosen a better place to enjoy this experience. It was excellent.

    Early days but dinner serve sizes quite small and a reduced menu selection. Wine prices very high. Table service was efficient, friendly and helpful..will improve as time goes by.

    We had been here several times for dinner previously but went for lunch this time. The food was excellent again, as was the service. Nothing was too much trouble, even swapping a long black for a cappuccino after delivery. Would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

    service was ordinary and food was very absolutely poor. It does not taste good at all. The king prawns that I’ve ordered as entree was terrible, very small in size, like a banana prawn. Dish decor was very poor doesn’t like Italian cuisine. The waiter toke mum and I upstairs, the atmosphere and environment there was extremely disappointed. Not recommended to go there at all. Can better spend your monies elsewhere.

    What a little gem this restaurant is. Super Italian food which lends itself to sharing if you desire.Topped off by the showstopping Tiramisu which comes out the traditional way in a large copper pot and is then portioned out.

    Mister Bianco

    Thank you very much for such a great review! We work really hard to offer the best food in the best possible environment, so we are happy to see that reflected on your visit to Mister Bianco. We love the Tiramisu too!

    Greeted by staff immediately, and great to be recognised from previous visits. The seasonal changes in menu keeps things fresh, and the complimentary home made bread as a starter was a pleasant surprise.

    Excellent Risotto. The best ive had in a long time. The gin cocktail was elegantly presented and was exquisite.

    Mister Bianco

    Thank you for writing a lovely review. We are so pleased you loved the risotto, it is something we are very proud of and enjoy creating different risottos as the seasons change. Our bar staff work hard to create delicious cocktails to accompany the meal so we are glad you chose to experience this. We hope to welcome you at Mister Bianco again soon.

About the restaurant

Sicilian satisfaction

Mister Bianco in Kew isn’t just your average Italian restaurant. Chef and owner Joseph Vargetto draws upon his southern Italian heritage to bring traditional Sicilian cuisine to Melbourne shores. Share plates, known as ‘stuzzichini’ feature heavily for entrees, just the right size starters before the main event comes out. Vargetto has won several awards for his contemporary take on Italian fare – for example, his fried zucchini flowers come ‘in the mist’ and are served under a glass dome. Mister Bianco has garnered such a loyal following that there was previously an outcry when the standout beef cheek was dropped from the menu. Never fear: It was quickly re-added to appease the hangry crowd, and remains a best-seller to this day. It’s proof that Vargetto really listens to his customers – not only creating a menu according to their tastes, but also expanding his cult restaurant to include a spacious upstairs area, complete with a private dining room for hire. It’s amore at first bite!

Best dish: Slow braised organic beef cheek in red wine, creamed spätzle and pickled radicchio
