Genuine Italian food. Menu changes with the seasons. Service warm, friendly and helpful. You can bring your own bottle of wine. We don't live in the area but if we visit for lunch or dinner the food is always top quality.

There is a side street some 50 or so metres away that allows for parking I believe. As I am not from Melbourne we caught a Taxi from our hotel on Spring Street. Hope this is of some assistance.
