THE VIBE

Low-lit and atmospheric, this Fitzroy North local offers a little slice of Italian sophistication adjacent to Edinburgh Gardens.

THE DECOR

Marble tables are arranged in the window while, further in, a timber bar is perfect for perching with a glass of wine and a bowl of olives. You can also settle in the candlelight at a table for two.

THE CROWD 

Couples on a midweek date night, friends enjoying wine and a bowl of pasta, and a group celebrating a birthday.

THE FOOD

We opted for the $50 “prix fixe” menu, which delivered three filling courses, including smoked almonds, olives and smoky mozzarella croquettes, charcuterie and pickles, burrata, steak and greens, and a melting pork dish.

THE VERDICT

A neighbourhood Italian restaurant and wine bar that’s perfect for a hot date or catch-up with friends.
