Vibrante achieves something on which other Italian restaurants in Melbourne often miss the mark – it manages to be both rustic and contemporary, both refined and homely. The service is unobtrusive but attentive, and the setting is elegant but sociable. This rare balance means Vibrante can suit any occasion, from engagement dinners to social sport functions to business meetings. Traditional Italian techniques and dishes are taken as inspiration, but Vibrante’s menu is injected with a lot of contemporary creativity, often guided by the seasonal availability of fresh, local Australian products. The menu covers healthy, hearty meals (the braised lamb risotto is hard to resist), light, refreshing fare (we recommend the salad of pears, rucola, strawberries and parmesan), gourmet pizzas, antipasti, desserts and a great wine selection. Found at the corner of Anderson and James streets, Vibrante is very handily located for anybody in Templestowe.
We only had coffee and cakes, but the service was friendly and quick. The cakes was amazing especially the Creme Brûlée! The ladies room was neat and clean .
Place looks amazing with beautiful art work, photos and deco. Food was amazing good and served quickly. Staff were polite, efficient and friendly. The selection of cakes were mouth-watering and so varied!
Excellent service. Beautiful fresh food. My risotto was immediately replaced when I expressed to the waiter that it had too much pepper for my liking.
Vibrante restaurant in Templestowe continues to be an exceptional restaurant in our area. Great service from both Management and staff. Food was great and brought out in time.
The staff at Vibrante were friendly and attentive. When we asked to be moved from close to the entrance, they were very obliging and understanding. Our party of 5 enjoyed the main courses we had ordered, especially the Pork ribs which were tasty and delicious, the Potted Pie's pastry was flaky and the vegetables were cooked just right. The sticky date pudding was enjoyed by all. Will definitely return soon.
Arranged a lunch for 6 for a pre Christmas "break up" and from the easy online booking service to the delicious main course and desserts, a great time was had by all. Highly recommended, Vibrante is great value in all aspects.
We had a very pleasant Christmas break up at Vibrante. Everyone enjoyed the food and pleasant atmosphere. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant to others.
Great place for a family catchup. Good menu with lots of various options. Had the surf and turf which was ok but not great. The Moreton bay buggs were quite small and the garlic sauce a little bland for my liking. However meals generally good, good gluten free options and lovely desserts
Mostly a pleasant experience apart from being seated near an opening and closing door with a chilly blast blowing straight onto us . Being of the older generation it wasn't very pleasant. We also had a frozen chip in amongst our cooked chips so kitchen staff may need to take more care with plating up.
We had ordered barramundi and gnocchi. The food was delicious and the service was great. We didnt have to wait long time from starter to main dish. We will come back again for sure.
