Lunch in Melbourne

Following on from my breakfasts, desserts and sweets in Melbourne posts, I’ve put together some lunches in Melbourne. Tipo 00 I’d heard good things about Tipo 00 and fortunately the restaurant was extremely close to my hotel. The restaurant was one of the few on my hit list that was still serving food around 2.30pm.

Italian @ Imperioso

After a short walk through Braddon to get to the city, I noticed a new Italian eatery, Imperioso, had opened up on Lonsdale Street (formerly Farmer’s Daughter). The menu was limited to five pasta dishes, most of which were handmade gnocchi dishes (yum) and some Italian pastries and coffee. The eatery is tiny and only […] Read more…

Secret/not so secret backyard pizza @ Pizza Arte

Did you know that in Kingston, there is a house where you can buy pizza from its backyard? Okay, so backyard pizza sounds a little dodgy, but it’s completely legit. Pizza Arte has been open for 17 years, first opening its backyard in 1999, and has since been run by the same Romanian family. They […] Read more…

Pizza @ Pizza Artigiana

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. I was contacted by Silvio, one of the owners of Pizza Artigiana in Macquarie, to come try their pizzas. The small eatery is tucked away behind the Jamison shops and opened in August 2015. Owning a pizzeria had been a passion […] Read more…

Lunch @ Bicicletta

I hadn’t been back to Bicicletta in years, and caught up with a friend a few months ago for lunch. I’m glad they offered an undercover outdoor area as it was one of the hotter summer days in Canberra. For lunch, Bicicletta offer pastas, pizzas, salads and some antipasti plates. The dinner menu is more […] Read more…

Molto Italian @ the Kingston Foreshore

Another new eatery to join Cinnabar, 7th and Bake, and Beef & Barley at the new end of the Kingston Foreshore, is Molto Italian. Headed by Carlo Tosolini, the same guy who owned the now closed Tosolini’s in Civic, I couldn’t help but go in with high expectations for decent portion sizes and lots of […] Read more…

Italian @ La Dolce Vita

A few months ago, V and I were going to head to Salotto at the Kingston shops on a Sunday night but realised it wasn’t open when only a dark locked up restaurant greeted us. We had no choice but to find somewhere else to eat and we were both in the mood for Italian. […] Read more…

Italian and Sons revisit

It was my sister’s birthday during her visit to Canberra. Seeing as we both love Italian food, it only seemed fitting to take her to one of the best Italian restaurants in town – Italian and Sons. The last time I was there was early last year and I was eager to revisit the restaurant. […] Read more…

Lunch @ Ellacure

(I dined as a guest of Ellacure, however all opinions are my own.) I was invited to dine at Ellacure to provide an honest blogger review of the restaurant. Ellacure is part of 2617 Group that also own Soju Girl and Versatile. My last visit was back in 2013 so I was happy to try […] Read more…

Dining @ Salotto

Replacing The Kennedy Room in Kingston, is newly opened Salotto Bar and Kitchen. By the same owners as Santa Lucia Trattoria down the road, this modern Italian eatery offers the shorter version of Santa Lucia’s menu. You’ll find some tempting starters such as an antipasto platter, arancini balls and zucchini fritters. Pastas are homemade and […] Read more…
