Visited on my own as travelling for work and loved the downstairs basement style bar and restaurant. Very cosy and casual, the food was simple yet very good! Herb bread and Pasta fantastic and the chocolate pudding amazing!

Rang to make a booking; the woman (Danika?) was extremely rude and wanted to talk over me and told me to let her finish speaking before I asked any further questions! Needless to say, we will NEVER be dining here

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

You could wear a dress. It's Melbourne so feel free to express yourself. This restaurant is fairly casual although lots of people there after work wearing suits and work dresses etc.

I agree with 111Jenny. It is a great place to take your time and enjoy their attention to detail and great service. However it would always be best to check with the staff there.
