This was a second visit. I recommended the restaurant to some colleagues after an initial meal here with family a few months earlier.

Service was impeccable. The food was just amazing, the taste and temperature especially.

Too crowded - chairs back to back leave no room to get in, out or sit comfortably. Inconsistent communication from service staff. Sad, this had been a favourite of mine. I tried showing off Cafe Di Stasio to good friends and had a generally less usual experience. Will try it again but not with a group of friends to see if it was just a one-off hiccup.

Food was fabulous. Service was friendly and professional. Atmosphere was good. However, despite booking weeks in advance, 5 of us were squashed onto two tables. The bill was huge, over $700, for the table - probably due to expensive main meals. We enjoyed the night but won't return due to the high prices.

I feel I should have been told that the protein in the main I ordered was not available and had been replaced with something else. The substitute was tasty, appropriate and similar to the protein detailed on the menu but not the same and certainly in my case would have resulted in a different selection being made

Service was initially a bit slow. Had to ask for water. Service better later. Food was excellent. Wine range quite extensive, also a bit on the expensive side. Enjoyed the evening for a special occasion.

Great food, quality European ambience, service excellent, a little piece of Italy, right here in Melbourne.

About Cafe di Stasio

They haven’t aged a day! How many restaurants do you know that have been around since the eighties? Now how many do you know that are as current as Michelangelo’s twitter feed? Cafe di Stasio is St Kilda’s veteran eatery that’s as hip as any. Praised by both locals and critics, Cafe di Stasio is dressed to impress. Its moody lighting and sophisticated setting make it the quintessential inner-city hang out hip, neat and just the right amount of fancy. This place doesn’t shy from the contemporary, nor from hanging up work by the provocative artist Bill Henson. Cafe di Stasio does Italian cuisine just the way the Melbournians like it. They craft their pasta not once, but twice daily, and have special spins on classic favourites. Why not try some of their Bread maltagliati with calamari and radicchio or their home made Linguine with prawns? You’ll have the perfect wine to complement your meal, as these guys get their wine from the very best local and international sources. If you haven’t been to this St Kilda favourite yet, you better get on it. Best dish: Casseula di ceci (Tuscan-style chickpeas, black cabbage and tomato with garlic bruschetta
