    The special pasta dish was very bland without flavour, the prawns were lovely though!! Service was good once they realised we hadn’t had our main dishes and weren’t ready to order desert!!!

    Fantastic food and wonderful service. The only issue we had was noise level as it was very crowded. Would have like some more distance between patrons too. We will be returning.

    Service attentive, although a smile would go a long way. Vodka Martini might need a bit of work. Not up to my standard, although the olives were generous and a great size. Food delish. Will be back.

    To start they had our booking for 24th. Service was slow. One Order was mixed up and this was cold when served ( steak and vegetables!). Very disappointed

    Good variety, good service, and very happy we chose this restaurant. Highly recommend the seafood platter for 2, the salads, and the lamb shanks.

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)
