Estivo offers food of fine-dining style, but the atmosphere at this popular High Street Italian restaurant is casual, friendly and easy-going in authentic Italian style. Easily accessible by train or car from all over Melbourne and a favourite with Kew locals, Estivo is right at the intersection of High Street and Warrigal Road and she fair hums most of the time, so it’s always wise to make a booking before you go. Once there you can look forward to a delicious spread of Italian dishes, from traditional risottos and pastas to refined mains like confit duck maryland, black angus beef mignon, slow braised beef cheeks and veal scallopini. Of course Estivo offer irresistible tiramisu, honey panna cotta, affogato or a superb selection of cheeses to finish it all off – though few people stop at one visit and you may well find yourself making a beeline back to this little gem.
This is the third time I have dined at Estivo and I have enjoyed it thoroughly each time. The food was sublime and the service excellent. Our waiter was extremely friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be back again!
The food was beautiful. Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Would recommend to try. Parking would be the only thing id complain about. Otherwise all was good.
Beautiful food, lovely atmosphere, attentive wait staff. Have been here before and will go again! Make sure you have room for three courses as you will want them. xx
