    They make a great steak and seafood salad. The Ragou is to die for and the veggie risotto brilliant. Good food!! I highly recommend Vibrante to all

    Very disappointed that we have to sit on our phones to order the food without interaction with staff. No Eftpos available but cash acceptable. I got the feeling that this was an ongoing situation not just a one off.

    Steaks were perfectly done, and they were more than happy to accommodate us with a small change to our choice. Always happy at this restaurant and have not been disappointed ever. Very accommodating

    The food and service were very good. I telephoned the restaurant earlier in the day to request a modification to the booking (extra person). I was told they didn't have my booking as they were no longer using The Fork. Fortunately, they were able to fit us all in.

    We appreciated the look of the restaurant from the outside being in a converted garage, so had the industrial look from the outside. We didn't have to wait to be shown to our table. It was very busy for a Tuesday night, so on the noisy side (tables seemed closer than maybe they should have been?). Our orders were taken and delivered quite quickly, the food was pretty good, although the rib eye was on the rare side of medium and the salmon crispy skin was a little tough (but tasty). The Manager was kind enough to remove an item from our bill, as when it was brought to the table it was covered with an element we had specified for it NOT to have due to (health) dietary requirement. The tiramisu was a very generous and delicious finish to a pleasant dinner.

    Vibrante is one of our favourite restaurants in Templestowe.?the waiters are super friendly & service was great. It is on the pricey side but the food is fresh & tasty. The noise level is pretty loud when the restaurant is busy.

    I had the Vibrante salad and the seafood was delicious. My partner had the Moreton bay bugs and said they were also fresh and yummy. The service was just right and we felt comfortable to sit as long as we liked.

    Friendly staff, nice decor, spacious seating plan, large variety on menu, delicious starters, excellent main meal, sensational dessert. Good wine list. I had lovely scallops, then scrumptious stuffed whole calamari, and my partner had Lamb Shanks that just fell off the bone , which we washed down with authentic DOCG. Chianti Classico from Tuscany , and then mouth watering blueberry cake to finish. Worth our 35km drive to experience.

    Lovely gnocchi, staff were prompt. The maitre de was distracted and grumpy but it was the last night before lockdown so I get it. COVID 19 has us all stressed.

    Beautiful food (chicken risotto), attentive service from the staff and a plentiful, quality wine list. Range of options for gluten free and vegan needs.

    It was great to be able to come back after the lock down to enjoy a meal at one of our favourite restaurants in the neighborhood. The seafood platter was fabulous, generous and full of great flavours and the affagato just finished off beautifully.

    Great venue, the food was delicious. The booth area a little cramped for 5 trying to social distance, sliding in and out a challenge! Enjoyed lunch.

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)
