    Very good pizzas with some unusual topping combinations. Great, fast service. Arrived a bit early for our booking but was not a problem. Only downside is that tables are very, very close together.

    Our pizzas were very good. Service staff had attitude which we found very strange. We assumed there must be a problem between staff and management. Overall it’s overpriced with some pizzas over $30 and the wine was very expensive for a pizza joint.

    I want to preface this review by highlighting that I understand that mistakes happen, however the service I experienced following the mistake that affected one of my friends who I was dining with yesterday was simply unacceptable. I dined with a group of friends and was extremely disappointed with the service. My friend asked for the radicchio salad without dairy and clearly specified that this was because she was severely allergic to dairy. The waiter did not listen and proceeded to serve her salad with the dairy components. She spent the evening very unwell in the bathroom at the restaurant and when I mentioned this to the waiter they didn’t offer to compensate us for this extremely poor service. After spending $370 on food for six, and insisting on some understanding from the waiter as to why this was not okay, all that we received was a $20 discount for the salad that made her unwell. It wouldn’t have taken much to improve this situation and I am really disappointed in the staff who served us.

    We eat at DOC every time we are in Melbourne and it never disappoints. The food is excellent. Our favourites are the mozzarella tasting plate and the DOC pizza. The service is attentive and knowledgeable. It’s always busy so it’s a good idea to book a table which is easy to do online.

    Great food but our table was so small. A table of 4 on a small round table, obviously just squeezing people in. It was really awkward as we couldn't even get one single plate of food on the table. Also I noticed other groups on big tables, with plenty of room. I suggest not taking the booking if you can't sit everyone, because we would have ordered double the amount of food.

    I am a massive DOC fan, it's a regular spot for me to dine when I am in Carlton especially before the movies. I'm disappointed to say last night was the first time I didn't enjoy my food. Me and my two mates all commented on how thin the base was, meaning the pizza became incredibly soggy and it felt like all we were eating was the topping. This was possibly a one off, but just wanted to provide this feedback because I have no plans to stop coming! DOC forever!

    The food was amazing, service excellent. Place has a nice vibe. I was pleased that there was a good amount of air circulation, but there was a vent above the table that was blowing a strong blast really cold air on us and the food, so it got cold very quickly.

    Lovely food and drinks! No faults at all there. The length of time for our booking (7 people) didn’t feel long enough. I appreciate that it’s a busy restaurant and time is allocated to each group to maintain good change over on seats and flow. However, I did not appreciate the manager coming and standing over myself and my friends as we worked out who was paying (and transferring money - as no split bills allowed). We had also just requested our lovely waiter to give us 5 minutes as we sorted this out. Please either give your big groups a simple time warning or allow for more time. It did unfortunately put a dampener on a really lovely meal.
