Good reliable food and service with reasonable prices and a welcoming vibe. One of our regular go-to locals which always serves great coffee. Menu is varied but perhaps a little tired for its regulars, nevertheless always spot-on. Thanks to the very attentive but not intrusive waiter...a job well done.

A lovely venue, I booked easily online. Service was unobtrusive yet still attentive. A menu that covers many different age groups and tastes. Also byo wine, they only change $6 per bottle. Thanks Vibrate.

Food was as very good. Lots of choice. A few in the group chose the lunch 2 course special and were very happy. Sadly the service was not as good as usual. We were a party of 7 but I had to ask for someone to attend to our table on two occasions. I eat at Vibrante regularly and suggested the restaurant to the group so I was a bit disappointed with this aspect. However everything else was really good.

Had pleasant lunch with friend, menu has lots of great choices - friend chose mussels, I had bug & barramundi risotto, both meals delicious! Only (slight) negative is lack of atmosphere, maybe due to large chilly space, didn’t notice any background music, didn’t like large TV screen showing what looked like advertising of some type (a bit too Keno at the pub for me). But meals were lovely, service was timely & friendly and I’m sure I will be back

About Vibrante Restaurant & Bar

Viva Vibrante! Friendly. Unpretentious. Delicious. That’s Vibrante in a nutshell. This Templestowe restaurant has been serving locals and visitors alike since 2009, and it continues to churn out tasty, modern Italian cuisine in a colourful — and usually boisterous — dining room. There’s an outdoor courtyard too that’s ideal for an afternoon or evening catch-up with friends. Dishes showcase fresh, local ingredients and the menu has a little something for everyone, including plenty of gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options. The garlic and herb focaccia is a popular starter, and there are heaps of gourmet pizzas that are sure to please. Try the tandoori pizza with chicken, chillies, onions, mushroom, tomato, mozzarella and mint yogurt. It’s an international take on an old Italian classic. Or, for the traditionalists out there, go for the Capricciosa with ham, mushroom, olives, tomato, mozzarella and anchovies. If the pizza doesn’t take your fancy, there’s pasta and risotto as well as Italian home-style meals such as a vegan baked capsicum or chicken parmigiana. Best dish: Veal Involtini (veal wrapped in prosciutto)
