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.
Location allowed easy access with ample parking. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great service. Good choice of menu and the food was immaculate. Well done Vibrante!
Wonderful food as usual. The portion sizes were bigger than expected and were good value. Service was prompt and friendly. Will go again, hopefully soon.
Have been coming to Vibrante for years.Last night we had dips and arancini balls for entree,the seared Tuna and prawn salad ( special ) Veal and Lamb Shanks for mains.The food was fantastic, and the staff and service are excellent.Would highly recommended this place.
Great food. Great service. Friendly staff. The atmosphere was great. Price of food was affortable too. Will definitely be going again. Thanks to the team on a great night
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.
Good 'traditional' food - nothing cutting edge or new fad. Upstairs dining area lacks a bit of atmosphere, and the staff are efficient but lack 'personality'. Whilst you don't want them interrupting or carrying on long conversations, they do need to be able to look you in the eye and acknowledge your existence rather than looking around for the next table to attend while taking your order. But that aside I recommend the venue
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.
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
