Love this place. Attention to detail, quality of food, great staff, ambiance, it has it all

Lovely restaurant with consistently good food quality and presentation. Waiters always polite and attentive. It’s very expensive for the type of food they present so it’s a special occasion restaurant at best.

Chasing yield has resulted in congested table configuration & noise

We had the lunch special. It was ok. The wine which was part of the special was undrinkable. I was there in December and had a fabulous experience so disappointing that it was so opposite when I dined recently. If I go again, I won’t order the special but off the menu and the pasta really is the way to go there - it’s always GOOD!

This was an excellent meal with quality service. The restaurant, unlike so many these days is peaceful, allowing patrons to talk without shouting over loud music. The wait staff are professionals not backpackers, so the meal is paced properly and service is attentive but not intrusive. We'll be back.

To many tables squashed into restaurant. Very noisey waiters run off their feet. Good quality food but just too noisey on Saturday nights

It lives up to its reputation

Supposed fine dining Cafe di Stasio was not. Water service was very ordinary and inattentive and became begrudging and poor when a plate was returned. Of four main plates, two were good, two were poor. Two ordered 'fish of the day' and specifically requested that the fish not be over-cooked. (previous bad experiences !) Both plates were served with over-cooked cuts (cross-cut fillet/supreme). I returned my plate and was offered another serving. The cut was from the thinner back & belly. At least it was properly cooked. Owner/Manager apologised and did not charge for the main. This was appreciated as the menu is in top restaurant prices. Overall - not a fine dining experience. Am unlikely to go again as there are many more similar restaurants to choose from.

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
