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.
Vibrante had great service,food & very reasonably priced.All 10 of us were very happy with our meals.Will be definitely be heading back there again soon.
All 12 attendees had numerous options to pick from and all enjoyed our meals. We arrived at 7.30 and were still there at 10pm - a great feel to the resturant.
My partner and I really enjoyed our meals. The portions were great and the quality of the food was fantastic. We were shocked when we saw the bill as we paid such a small amount for entree mains, drinks and dessert! Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
