We had a fantastic time. Danieli, Annalise and Aleeda were very attentive to all our needs. We had one Vegan, one Celiac and a Vegetarian amongs our group, all of whom were catered for without a problem. We opted for multiple entree followed by a main meal of your choice. We brought our own wine and cake. By the time... More

Last night three of us went to Baldovino for dinner, two of the party are a bit fussy, without a problem they were able to get a great meal. We all found the size of the meal was more than what you get at other restaurant. No one would ever leave Baldovino's hungry. Food was excellent. You can see that... More

This family-owned restaurant is authentic, sincere, friendly, passionate, unpretentious, and marvellous. My stratiatella con tortelini, capretto main and bread and butter pudding were perfect, as was everything else our table of six ordered. Excellent Itaiian wine list. Everyone in the kitchen and front of house is proud of the art they create, and our Sunday lunch was one of the... More

Well it's Fathers Day and just about every restaurant in Melbourne must be busy. No different here. However, seating was comfortably arranged with room to move though the restaurant was all but full. Waitresses were hurried but kept their happy and friendly demeanours in place. Always like proper white tablecloths and napkins and gleaming tableware. Not a serviette in sight.... More

We dine here every few weeks and love it! The staff are so informative and helpful. The food is always reliably delicious and authentically Italian. Homemade gnocchi is wonderful and particularly good when served with spicy Italian pork and fennel sausage. Being BYO is great and makes it a regular, inexpensive place to enjoy.
