looking for a nice homely atmosphere with great food? this is it. the staff were relaxed and friendly. We enjoyed the calamari for entre, the special was papardelle with duck ragout and mushroom, and was 10/10. we got the last one and it was divine. the swordfish with mint and kipfler was unusual and refreshing as I had never seen this before. Desserts were just what you expect. the Cannoli with walnut cream and quince was spot on, and the choc gelato and walnut cake was amazing. had a top night. if I had to write one negative, the place is small so if you are dining for 2 you are only 30cm away from another couple. adds to the cosy atmosphere though if you are expecting it.

Authentic and inventive Sicilian style food, consistently high quality (I have been many times), fresh and very reasonably priced. Old style table cloths and plates add to the atmosphere. Excellent table service and the cannoli are to die for

Just returned to Melbourne after 3 yrs away and returned to our favourite local restaurant - Bar Idda - for our 30th wedding anniversary......exactly how we remember it...bloody fantastic! We had one of the best pasta dishes ever and the sweet and sour slow cooked lamb was sublime...don't miss this little gem of a restaurant.

Have been twice now. Love the rustic, creative, delicious food. Quaint atmosphere & friendly, helpful staff. A bonus is that upstairs is quiet if you fancy a more peaceful evening (a rare option these days!).

We enjoyed the shared platter. It is simple food in a simple setting but really busy and friendly. Barramundi and sausage dishes were really good but the meatballs were rather bland. Wine list is short but quite adequate. Great place for a family get together as ours was.
