    Very nice experience. Enjoyed the stuffed calamari. Staff were friendly and service was prompt. Will probably go again sometime. Was rather noisy due to the large gatherings.

    Food was good, service started good, time to receive meals was good as the restaurant became busier was hard to get attention of the waiters, and felt rushed to pay and leave..

    Very busy restaurant but timing and quality was maintained to a great standard. Adapted to an increase of people with no fuss. Would recommend to our friends.

    Food is served fast without breaks in between. Drinks are served slow. The food quality is best described as pub food with prices that are sky high. I would not recommend this establishment to anyone.

    Service great , food great , decor and setting great . Only criticism would be noise level of other diners chatting. Maybe some sound absorbing material needed on ceiling or somewhere.

About the restaurant

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)
