Tucked away on a quiet lane, this favorite of Melbournians consistently lives up to its many awards and accolades. Here you find stylish service and stylish customers, all without pretension. The cuisine mixes Italian favors with Australian flair. Try the roast duck with grappa sauce, one of the tasty pasta dishes, or the specials, which your waiter will fill you in on. If you prefer something lighter, there’s a bar menu of equally tempting dishes. On the upstairs level is the ultracool late-night bar, Bellavista Social Club.
