Stopped in for lunch, for home made gnocchi with basil pesto and home made tagliatelle bolognese . Beautiful food, being made on the premises you can really taste the difference. Thank you to Penelope and the rest of the staff for your friendly service and also to the chefs for making a fantastic meal!

Thanks for your honest feedback.

Yes, you can taste the difference between home made pasta like ours (especially as it has six free range eggs in it!) - and the pasta that most other places serve up.
We make the pasta and the gnocchi in the front window so that people can see that it really is made by us - and freshly made, to be used that day.

One of few options available for an early brekky on a Friday in Lygon Street. Very friendly manager served us and was only just opening when we arrived. Coffee was nice but my eggs were only just luke warm which was a bit of a shame but still quite tasty.

Thanks for your kind review. Our coffee is roasted by @TheMalingRoom, a past winner of the Best Boutique Coffee Roaster award for Melbourne.

I suggest in future that you raise any issues with the manager - they then have the opportunity to rectify any issues that may arise. I have instructed staff to do their best to ensure guests leave happy.
The eggs would have been replaced very quickly.
All the best.

Tables for 2 inside restaurant & we were the only ones using them everyone else was outside on the pavement sitting on tables provided for them. We prefer to sit inside. Why? If you knew Lygon Street, Carlton Victoria (suburb of Melb) where all the 'look at moi' flashy cars parade up and down the street, then the occassional motor bike reaves up to make a noise & show what sort of toy they have nuh, not for me. We were beckoned into the restaurant by waiter as they all stand out front of their shop front to lure the public into eat & can become a little intimidating at times but I guess that's business. We had the salmon & cheese pizza with glass of red wine - very nice only the pizza was very dry (which I made mention to the waitress) & she appreciated the feed back. Beautiful Italian & French girls & a German young lad were there at our beck and call. Service was excellent. Couldn't do enough for us but to try to converse on general chit chat, it is difficult as they aren't sassy in that area of life. It was like talking to another planet at times but delightful all the same. They had gorgeous beef burgundy pies on display cabinet which we thought about picking up & taking with us. They had platters of 'try this'n that' for passing public to try which I thought was a good but not many people came into restaurant. We enjoyed our little quiet moment inside. I would certainly return as I believe they have lots to offer other than a pizza. Great staff & seemed to be all communicating with each other.

Helen, thanks for your review - and apologies for the pizza not being to your liking.

Let me (Fernando) know (0423 945 928) when you're visiting next and I'll organise for a discount on your meal.

Re staff - takes time to create good atmosphere - and choosing good down-to-earth people is important. Re striking up a conversation, I've asked them to let patrons enjoy their experience without impinging too much on their time.

The Pies - well, they are multi-award winning with the Beef burgundy winning a Gold Medal and the Curry Chicken winning two Silver medals - at different Australia-wide competitions.
