This little italian restaurant was a really good find. Its in an alley which reminded us of Italy. The lamb risotto was to die for. I have tried to replicate it a few times. All together a great experience.

We went on a Wednesday and were surprised by the crowd. Probably wise to book. We had seen the menu in the window and were looking forward to the seafood hotpot. Unfortunately the menu in the window is out of date and this was not available. We did have great food including delicious desserts. Staff were excellent.

Tucked away in the lane way next the discount chemist is Vicolo. A visit to Merimbula always includes dinner at Vicolo. The food is Italian, the menu is comprehensive and delicious. The pizzas are excellent as too the pastas. The wine list is very good, a great range of wines including some Italian. Be sure to book your table, you... More

They have got the atmosphere right. Looks like one of Melbournes superb CBD back lane restaurants. Very Mediteranean in style and decor, so no issues there. Service is good too. Prompt, efficient and polite. But a restaurant is about food and that's where they disappoint! Food is a poor Australianised interpretation of Italian/Mediteranian cuisine. It really carries little resemblence at... More

Popular restaurant that is best to make a reservation. A cosy ambiance whether seated inside or out in the laneway. A nice Italian themed menu. We enjoyed the generous seafood spaghetti and chicken, bacon and mushroom pasta dishes. Service was friendly and helpful.

This restaurant never lets me down. My husband and I ordered the garlic bread with butter sauce and garlic pizza with trio dips for entree, the Gnocchi (omg yum) and the Godfather pizza for mains and the taste of all desserts plate for dessert. Each dish was just amazing, cooked so well and delivered beautifully. Atmosphere was relaxing and vibrant.... More

Visited here on our first night of this stay in Merimbula. Took advantage of the Tuesday night specials. I had risotto, which was a little bland & gluggy. The rest of the family had pizza, which also did not live up to reputation. We were seated outside, this was lovely and had heating to keep us warm. Service was good,... More

The owner of the business disclosed that there was no guarantee that the food could be gluten free, and the small kitchen could not offer a GF space. After some discussion over options the owner could not resolve the GF questions and told us not to come to the restaurant and he was removing the booking. Beware! if you suffer... More
