This is a great little place for lunch. Little being so true of so many cafes and restaurants in Melbourne and this is certainly a small and cosy cafe but it adds to the atmosphere. The tables are quite close inside particular at the back of the restaurant but there are also tables out on the street if you want... More

I'll be fair here because I believe that you are at least trying. First of all the pizza. Where is the elasticity of the base? Its incredibly floury ..... it almost breaks apart like pita bread. Please, that is the basic tenant of italian cuisine. Get the base right please. Secondly, toppings. You instantly go to gourmet and your own... More

Very authentically italian, right down to the craft beers. Great pizzas, and delicious cheese and meat platters. Does get pretty crowded so best to book ahead.

I had a perfect Italian style calzone pizza with a nice mixed salad. The beer selection is based on Italian beets.

We had a group of ten people booked in for dinner at Docs, the service was reasonably good, the food was extremely good. maybe a little exspensive for what was served but still very nice pizza.

Absolutely loved this place! Very busy but service is great, food is delicious and staff are all Italian and provide a truly authentic feel. Be sure to order the white chocolate pizza but do not share (order one to yourself) ;-)

This was recommended to us by the Airbnb host we had and it was amazing! In the Italian quarter of Melbourne but off the main strip, this place was packed with locals. Best pizza we've had! Salad was super fresh and delicious and the wine was great. Ditch the over priced stuff on Lygon Street and make this a priority!

Had a meal there before a movie . Crowded on a Monday night - singles, couples and families. Great service - checking back- how's your food, your drink? 3 in party all had different pizza. Quickly made and served.

Having heard amazing things about this place we went for pizza one evening and were not disappointed. It's authentically Italian food service by Italian people. Would go again.

The pizza was amazing but I can't say much for service. We came in the aftenoon in between the lunch/dinner rush. There were 3 of us, the place was not busy at all and yet we were sat at a 2-person table instead of a 4-person table. Our plates were hanging off the table due to lack of space for... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
