Food and service are excellent, this is a proper , grown up kitchen . Only two sour notes are firstly, the eyewatering price of wines. In 2 words, legalised theft. $96 a bottle for the owners' own brand Yarra Valley Chardonay, and $92 for a Macedon which costs $23 at Dan Murphys. Other gripe, no sound proofing on ceilings, so far noisier than it needs to be or should be, to allow comfortable conversation levels.

Excellent. Best Italian restaurant in Melbourne.

Good variety on the menu- hard to choose. Delicious food especially the prawn linguine. Great air conditioning on a very hot day.

Sooo rushed! 2 courses, bottle of wine and in and out in 45 minutes. No chance enjoy the experience. A long way short of previous visits.

Noisy, cramped, food was mediocre: fish and octopus overdone, omelette overdone.

It was overcrowded and in believably noisy .The staff were not approachable at all .The food was way overpriced for what it is

Very busy, and as a result the service suffered. Plates left too long, wine glasses not refilled. Understaffed for the number of people in the restaurant. Food very good - as always.

Just not what it used to be. Service very disorganised for fine dining and not particularly warm ...but rather sarcastic . For the prices they are charging the service needs to be excellent. Used to dine here frequently for special occasions and just don't think we'll bother again...simply not special enough for the price, given other great options in the area

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
