Tucked away on Little Collins behind white washed brick walls sits one of Melbourne’s newest Italians, Lupino. When I was told we were being taken to an Italian restaurant with pasta “like momma used to make” I was thrilled. I love those authentic feeling Italian restaurans.

We headed over to Lpino during the lunch rush and found it next to the back of the Melbourne Club tucked along a little side street. The only reason we found it was the small red fox outline glowing above the door.

We were warmly greated and shown quickly to the rest of our party. The inside is broken into three smallish sections but all open to each other that provides a really nice intimate/airy feeling to the place.

We were seated at the slightly raised area at the back which gave us a great view of both the open bar/part kitchen area and the rest of the patrons.

We dined with a Lupino ‘regular’ who happily ordered a base of mixd starters including perfect arancini that oozed (in the very best way) from the centre, a tricolor salad with two types of tomatoes and fresh basil and cheese and the cheesiest creamiest gnocchi – yum!

We all ordered a variety of mains and while there wasnt a great vegetarian selection they were happy to pull together a yummy artichoke pasta together for me.

The table had pizza, pasta and fresh fish and all meals were lovely. We also fell in love with the mild fresh chilli oil – was amazing on the gnocchi!

This place is charming, the staff attentive and the food fresh and generous. A perfect place to take someone for a nice surprise or head to with a group of friends for a catch up.

  1. I’m curious to find out what blog platform you’re utilizing?

    I’m having some minor security issues with my latest site and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any recommendations?

  2. Finding the right entertainment for the reception may seem like a
    daunting task. It allows you to be as involved in your reception planning as you like, the best part in my opinion is the
    fact that as a bride you can’t possibly miss any of the important things like garter toss, cake cutting and such because there is a space for everything on the planning forms, you don’t need to fill in everything though.
    You want much more than a wedding disk jockey, you want an “Entertainment Director”.
