Food and wine tasty but expensive. Noisy atmosphere. Attentive staff.
One of my favourite restaurants - always excellent food with excellent service. Recommended.
Really nice meal. Was a pleasure taking the family to this restaurant. Great pasta, fish and meat. The oysters were so fresh and yummy, the tiramisu caped off a great meal. Will be back soon.
Italian restaurants in the Melbourne CBD don’t get much more Tuscan than Grill @ Florentino. And exactly because it’s Tuscan-inspired – Tuscany being one of those most majestic regions of Italy, of course – Grill @ Florentino radiates a certain charm and authenticity that’s difficult to find elsewhere in Melbourne. You’ll find Grill @ Florentino on Bourke Street where the food and the wine are both exceptional, with the latter a selection of reds by the glass or by the bottle that are as diverse as Tuscany itself.
In terms of food, each dish on the impressive Grill @ Florentino menu proudly incorporates Tuscan traditions, and you can expect everything from antipasti to begin – the octopus with nettle, capers, lardo and blood orange is something completely unique – to a small but quality selection of pasta dishes, market fish and steaks. Of everything, the pappardelle with wild boar ragu is not to be missed, nor the O’Connor flat iron Angus. As you can see, and especially when you consider all of the above is served from an open kitchen, Grill @ Florentino Melbourne CBD is no ordinary Italian restaurant. It’s refined but without any hint of pretence and reservations are essential.
