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.
Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
A very busy night being the night before Mother's day but the service was great and the food tasty, tender and well presented. Well done! One of the best value restaurants in Templestowe.
Vibrante has updated their decor in recent years and the atmosphere is modern and aesthetically pleasing. Tones of black, grey, white with pops of warm red. We were greeted with a warm welcome and had attentive prompt service throughout our dining experience.Food was enjoyed and I would highly recommend the Vibrante seafood salad which was fresh and delicious. Stuffed calamari with citrus salad was a little on the bland side. Otherwise an enjoyable experience.
Lovely restaurant and great meal. The service was excellent with very friendly staff.
