Great being able to have complete vegan menu alongside a non- vegan menu.
Had a great mother’s day lunch with my family. So many vegan options and everyone enjoyed their food.
Absolutely amazing food and great vibe- staff were lovely! Thank you so much for making my partners bday so special
Fantastic Sicilian based food front more recent migration. One of our favourite restaurants in Melbourne. Every course is delicious and especially the desserts are to die for.
We had been to Maccaroni Osteria Italiana once before, and the welcome and food were fantastic - so went last night for my birthday. In order of occurrence: - On a fairly short winelist, the wine we chose was not available. - Three of us ordered the barramundi; after a few minutes, the waitress came back to inform us there was only one barramundi - at only 7.30 in the evening. - My guests having re-ordered, their meals came, but not mine. After an absence of my order - or indeed any contact or interest by the wait staff - it turned out that the order had not got through, and I ended up with my meal (the world's fastest risotto - that's not intended as a compliment) when my guests were just finishing theirs. Great food - but absolutely chaotic and untrained front of house.
This is by far my favourite Italian restaurant, food made with love like my Nonna use to make. I love that there is a vast variety of delicious vegan and gluten free options. I have been 4 times now and each time, the food has been out-of-this-world, FULL of flavour. The atmosphere is very calm, romantic and the staff are extremely accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.
As someone who needs to follow a low FODMAP diet to manage symptoms of IBS, to find a restaurant that specifically offers a LOW FODMAP menu, alongside their regular menu and vegan and vegan-FODMAP menus is just a god send. And then we got nothing but beautiful food. Couldn’t recommend more highly!
Service a little slow at the start. Waiter didn’t seem to know what I was asking for when I requested the FODMAP menu, the main reason we wanted to try this restaurant. All the meal qualifying questions were asked later by another member of staff. Wine selection seems over priced and the Italian wines don’t have any style comparisons to make choices easier. However food was very tasty, well presented and couldn’t be faulted.
Wonderful vegan Italian food obviously cooked with love and good tastebuds. The entree faux calamari fritti was amazing followed by vegan Italian meatballs. Great service from friendly and efficient Italian speaking waiters and warm inviting atmosphere. Would love to come back and try the banquet. Gluten free options are great as well for friends I know
Our second visit, again the food was great as with 2 vegans in our family group they provided great options for us all. Both times we have felt that we were intruding. The Italian woman who seemed to be running the place, could not have been less interested in us or our feedback. Although the food was good there was no atmosphere and it is quite pricey. They messed up a dessert order after asking several times about allergies and offered nothing as an apology. Not even a sorry! Probably won't bother again
