    The food and service was great. Will come back again when back in Melbourne. Perhaps the only minus, the background music needed to be a few notches lower. Felt like sitting in a restaurant somewhere in Italy. Thankyou

    I come to this restaurant frequently and it is always wonderful. The food is delicious, (particularly the calamari!) and the staff members always make the experience more enjoyable with their courteous and friendly service. The restaurant itself has a European ambience and I believe is a hidden gem in Melbourne.

    Speaking as someone with limited eyesight I found the entry lighting and steps difficult. It was very noisy but I understand at this time of year Xmas parties are in place. Food was lovely but a little on the expensive side as was the wine. Overall I enjoyed our meal but stumbled twice poor lit steps.

    I love Il Solito Posto for its intimate vibe, position and feels like you’ve found a secret spot in this awesome city of Melbourne. Given its December and the cbd was crazy busy, we were welcomed in a little earlier than our booking and it worked fine. Noisy only due to being at full capacity, but didn’t seem to bother us or those around us, and still felt private ironically. The staff were all equally kind, fun and hospitable. I could arguably say it’s a fave on the top end of my list. Thanks and merry cheers to you all at Il Solito Posto ✌🏻

    Food here is generally excellent-this time one of the dishes was only a 7/10 but that’s as low it goes. The other dishes and the service were great.
