    Been visiting Melbourne for almost a decade now, with Tipo 00 being a place I always wanted to try ... The opportunity to eat there came up today and now I can definitely understand why people rave on about it! Had the spaghetti with scampi and mussels which was very delicious, and they offered extra bread after I finished eating to soak up the pasta sauce with it. Will definitely try and drop by again to try more of their dishes next Melbourne trip!

    Had the chef's choice and matching wines for lunch today. Every dish was delicious (special mention to the tiramisu, the sauce was liquid crack), wines paired well with food. Definitely looking forward to coming back here again!

    Well it's a hard place to get into but we went early just before 5 and had no problem. This place has so many 5 star reviews and is such a little gem we had to eat here while visiting Melbourne. It was also recommended by some locals so expectations were high and met. Very friendly staff and great service. Food was outstanding.

    Great joint! Plenty of bars nearby to have a glass of vino if there’s a wait

  • 5Andreas B. 11 months ago
    We purchased the prepare at home food, the Wagyu Rigatoni, Focaccia and for dessert the Tipomisu. Ordering was simple and easy as was collection. The instructions were emailed through and really easy to follow. The food in short was amazing and we have missed eating in the restaurant! Take advantage of the opportunity to try food from a hard to visit in normal time restaurant. Thank you Tipo 00

    The place was busy when we arrived and staff helpfully directed to the bar next door whilst they sorted out a table. When the table became available a staff member came next door to advise us. Staff were really friendly, the scallops starter was delicious as was the Moreton bay bug risotto. The doughnuts to finish were fab, all washed down with decent wine and liqueurs. A great meal and good value. Highly recommended.

    Cozy and vibrant restaurant. friendly and efficient staff. You can see the chefs at work in the kitchen. Absolutely loved the flavour of the spaghetti with truffle and porcini. Everything is authentic Italian and all pasta is homemade.

  • 5W. 1 year ago
    Easily one of the best pasta places in Melbourne! I got the spiral type pasta with Italian sauasage, herbs, red cabbage, olive oil, a touch of chilli etc This place is also good because the dishes are not too small. The wine list is good and has delicious Italian wines, I got the Nebbiolo. They serve some complimentary slices of toasted bread with a bit of goats cheese of the plate ??

    Delicious food and they were very accomodating with their delivery.

  • 5Rebecca M. 1 year ago
    just amazing flavours!! I love how the pasta sauces are not overpowering. Had the creamy truffle special pasta and the sauce was to die for, subtle truffle taste and I don't feel bad eating it as it wasn't just fully cream like other pastas I've had. The avocado and cherries complement very well with the ceviche. Meats just melted in my mouth. Service was excellent.

    Intimate and buzzing vibes in this small Italian pasta bar. Had the chef's menu for $70 and all the dishes were full of flavours and well executed! The standout was the squid ink linguine, so much flavour and pasta and squid was cooked perfectly. Highly recommend this place for small gatherings or dining on your own.

  • 5Joan N. 1 year ago
    Perfectly made pasta every single time, every single plate. Texture, flavour, seasoning all perfectly balanced with the freshest ingredient. The wine list is extensive, and reasonably priced for what it is. Service is efficient, friendly and warm. I brought an important overseas client there and he was very impressed. After the meal, i lost my receipt and was in panic mode. I emailed them and the staff was so helpful that they comb through all their receipts of the night and found my receipt, took a photo and emailed it to me. This is exceptional service and they now have me as a customer for life. All praise to tipo 00

    Lived up to its reputation. Wonderful place, great food. Needed to wait for nearly an hour, but worth the wait. Went for the chiefs choice and got a good variety. Three starters, two pasta dishes and one and a half desert. Liked not having to choose; just sat back and enjoyed the experience. Can sit at the bar, but we chose the shared table.

  • 5Georgia W. 1 year ago
    A local recommended this place. Had walked past many times and not given it a second thought. So glad we went in. Industrial feel. Concrete floors but sound is not a problem as there’s things on the walls to buffer noise out and make the acoustics better. Service is fast, professional, friendly and efficient. Menu is not complicated.

    The best Italian food and probably the best food and drink pairings I've had here in Melbourne...well worth the wait to get a table....homemade pastas, desserts that'll make grand mama proud.....small spot so there are not many tables so go early n beat the crowd.....the staff was very helpful and their recommendations were spot on.....

  • 5Jessica J. 1 year ago
    Food, service, atmosphere was all on point. Great for any occasion especially a spontaneous date! You will need to book, unless your happy to pop your name down and go grab a drink somewhere while you wait which is easy enough given the convenient location.

  • 5B. 11 months ago
    Nothing much to be said, the pasta here is simply excellent, the staffs are very friendly and helpful. Booking recommended.

    We visited Tipo a couple of days before lockdown of Restaurants. We have always enjoyed the food and service and this time was no different. I really hope that the restaurant survives this incredible upheaval of society and hope to dine there again once the world has beaten the virus.

    When you hear famous chefs raving about a restaurant you want to give them a go, so I did. When in lockdown, you are at the mercy of the food delivery driver and hope that the food arrives in one piece or not looking too much like a dog's breakfast! :) But in the end, it comes down to taste. What I ordered: Foccacia - a few slices with a dipping sauce [enough for my lunch the next day]. Gnocchi di Patate - not a fan of gnocchi normally, but this braised duck with porcini mushrooms and pecorino [type of cheese] gnocchi were a light and fluffy match made in gastronomical heaven. Polenta chips - lightly dusted with rosemary salt with a crunchy texture. Tipomisu - a decadent indulgence of chocolate, mascarpone and coffee - almost like a classy layered biscuit. All up $66 - this included a tip and delivery fee. Very reasonable for a meal to share or to have alone. In summary, the food was tasty, a generous serving, filling and enticing enough for me to want to order again and visit the venue once we get to some form of normalcy.

    Excellent and authentic Italian food. They also have a fireplace at the back where it's quite nice and warm over winter. All the pastas are excellent with quality pasta and ingredients. Good portion sizes and amazing clean and well done flavours. Lunch specials and course menus are excellent and would recommend going from entire through to desserts. Only thing would be maybe consider doing some mocktails or drinks for those that do not or cannot drink - it realistically you're in an Italian restaurant - so you got to drink. What wine they do have is excellent and have a great range and variety. Well deserved

    Incredible food, incredible service. Went there for my fiance's birthday dinner and they went out if their way to make it special. It would already have been special without their extra effort. The food was INCREDIBLE. 10/10 recommend.

    Insta: melbfoodie_mark YT: MelbFoodieMark ** Check them out for more food reviews in Melbourne! - WTH! It took me 2 months to get a table reservation.. I don't mind waiting that long if food's good. Unfortunately, this high-profile restaurant didn't meet my expectation. I had Gnocchi di patate, Tagliolini Al Nero, and Tipomisu. Gnocchi was fluffy and came with savory braised duck and squid ink pasta was cooked to perfection with refreshing lemony kick. They were all decent, well-balanced dishes... just not as impressive as I anticipated. I found them dull and service definitely had some room for improvement. I personally wouldn't recommend this place - felt like it's hyped up too much

    (Translated by Google) Frozen chives dumplings and chives dumplings were delivered. The chives dumplings were not bad but the meat was slightly stronger. The chives dumplings were very ordinary. (Original) 外送了冷凍韭黃水餃和韭菜水餃,韭黃水餃還不錯但肉味稍濃,韭菜水餃很普通。
