My husband and I dined at Italy 1 this evening looking for a special meal together and while the food was delicious we felt very rushed and were in and back on the street in an hour!!! We felt rushed from the moment we sat down and ended up only buying a main meal because of the way we felt treated.

We went to Italy 1 on a Friday night - please note Bistro 1 is no longer in Little Collins St - in fact Bistro 1 is no longer.
The food was fantastic and the beauty of this restaurant is that it is small and quiet so we could carry on a conversation without shouting and asking each other to repeat what was said.
The food and the service was perfect for our group and the wine list matches the food provided. The waiter was very helpful and while the restaurant was busy he was able to ensure each table was attended to promptly.
When you book make sure you tell them if you are wanting "Theatre" sitting or dinner. If you are going to the theatre they are able to accommodate you easily for an 8:00 start, however if you are not you are expected to clear out by 7:45 - unless you advise them otherwise.
