    If you are in Melbourne, do yourself a favor and have dinner at least once at Foglia Di Fico! You will not be disappointed and will find reasons to go a second time to explore more of the menu. Friendly staff and chef is in tune with the palate of Italy and the community.

    I loved the pricing of food here. It is not at all costly and the quality is also good. They have got different types of cuisines to serve. I have ordered Chinese and I loved the food. Their staff is also very helpful and they suggested me choosing the best menu for my dinner date. Moreover, the interior of this restaurant is also attractive. I think this is the must-visit restaurant and I strongly recommend them to you all.

    10/5 stars from me! Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by a very lively staff who happily showed us to a table and quickly explained the specials that were available. We were then served sumptuous sourdough bread that left us wanting more! My pasta was delicious and tasty too! The lobster calamari was perfectly cooked - super nice and soft that really complemented the pasta well. Overall, was very happy with the place! My wife considered coming again the next day!

    I am noting 5 stars because it's probably one of the best restaurant we went in Australia so far. Although I believe it deserves 4.5-4.7 star rating but the rating of restaurants in Melbourne seems higher than usual. Food was delicious with mix yet balanced tastes (no over powering flavour from one). Plates were very well arranged and served with good sizes. The setting of the place is fantastic as tables are not too close from each others and usually separated by something decorative (wine rack, furniture, lamp) to give you some privacy with your neighbour. The staff was very friendly. Booking was easily made possible from Google map. The only downsides I would note are: 1) location was a bit outside the interesting/ active city centre area 2) The decoration of the plate could be a bit too much as complicated dishes are usually harder to remember than simpler ones (e.g the traditional food such as pasta, pizza, rice dishes) 3) Because the risotto was very creamy (with a good amount of cheese) the dish reminded me more of something closer to "arroz caldoso" from Catalonia (Spain) than an Italian risotto. Overall, a great experience at a very reasonable price!

    Words can not describe how fabulous the food is. You’ll just have to try it yourself.

    Perhaps, the best Italian restaurant in Australia. The food was amazing, I highly recommend the pork belly dish. This place has a great selection of drinks, a beautiful intimate Italian decor and very professional staff. I can't wait to go back.

  • 5Adam D. 1 year ago
    Fantastic food. My partner had the gnocchi while I had the twice-cooked pork belly....amazing. The service was impressive too. Very kind and thoughtful team members, even ensuring that when we left one of them rushed to the door to open it for us. Will definitely be back again in future and will recommend others to visit too!

Everything about them is a perfect ten. Flawless. We will make it a point to visit this restaurant again when we come over to Melbourne the next time. ??

    My second time visiting, and the food was consistently tasty, and service was friendly. I came with a large group on both occasions, although it seemed to take a lot longer for food to come out on our second visit. Would still recommend for good Italian.

    From the welcome to the farewells, every element of service at Foglia Di Fico was exceptional. An easy to find, and navigate to, CBD address, on the south east corner of Latrobe and Spencer Sts. First impression when I arrived by taxi at 7pm was of a plain unassuming exterior. But as soon as I opened the front door the ambience was warm and woody, but almost hotel modern, Italian bistro lounge style feel. It is crisply neutral and muted, with a wonderfully displayed cellar, and with lovely sound baffling, and relaxed ambient jazz as background music. I could just feel the atmosphere unknotting any muscle tension as I sat down. As we sipped our sparkling water and pre-dinner cocktails we three decided to share all the dishes we ordered. So we began with three entrees: a dish of tender pan fried scallops, a fillet of rainbow trout gently smoked (with charred pistachio shells) served with slices of finger limes, and some of the most delectable crunchy and melt in the mouth arancini I have ever had. The serves were just the right size for entrees, just enough to tantalize the tastebuds, and set you up for the more robust flavours to come. We chose Moet et Chandon NV Champagne to complement our starters just because we felt like it, and it was a very satisfying choice. We followed this with three shared main dishes. A broken pasta dish with rabbit sauce with deep fried olives, that had a lovely silky feel and just enough tooth to give it substance and provide a wonderful springy support to the gamey flavours of the tender rabbit sauce. The second pasta dish was of canelloni with a savoury cheesy fishy mousse filling topped with a generosity of razor clams and pippis and a sublime yet robust sauce that tasted like a cross between seafood bisque and clam jus (that was almost plate-lickingly good). Then our ultimate course was a substantial piece of beautifully cooked and presented medium rare rib-eye beef served with mushrooms, baked onion, fresh horseradish cream, and seasonings. A side dish of rocket and pear salad, and another of perfectly cooked seasonal vegetables rounded out this course to repletion. Still keeping it fresh we accompanied this wonderful set of main course flavours with an immensely quaffable Pinot Grigio. We contemplated dessert (the menu was most intriguing) but that would have been one dish too far. This was seriously excellent food without being fussy, or trying for gimmicks. Excellent ingredients beautifully cooked and presented with no overclever fiddling. Each mouthful was delicious and full of clear tastes yet it all worked together so smoothly that you suddenly realised you'd cleaned your plate while chatting and were savouring the aftertastes just as much as the mouthfulls. The service staff were warmly and smoothly professional and Jerry, the Owner and Chef, was incredibly hospitable and given we were sharing each dish between three, made sure to provide easily divisible servings and presentations. Then as we left he presented up with a memorable digestif, an Italian myrtle berry liqueur that had a subtle herby fragrance and was like a fruity faintly resinous version of Benedictine. A perfect ending to a memorable meal. The prices on the menu were very accessible, and could have been much higher for the quality we received. This restaurant was just understatedly excellent. As we left we all noted that the streetscape is much more attractive after dark, when the interior lighting was glowing out through the cedar venetians and the polished expanses of plate glass. Showing the warmth and welcome to passers by, and looking very inviting indeed. Five definite stars. This restaurant is a gem.

    Last night I went to Foglia di Fico with my boyfriend, the location is so romantic. As soon as I entered I felt like at home and, since we are Italian, this aspect is absolutely fundamental. The tables are perfectly organized in order to give the proper privacy to customers and the waiters were fast, kind and meticulous. We ordered three entrees and they were a great start of the dinner. The first course was gnocchi, melting and soft as we never tasted before, I warmly recommend it. The rib eye as second course was properly cooked and the mashed potato was unbelievable. The mix of desserts was incredible, the perfect end for the dinner, especially the panna cotta captured my personal taste. Although the night was busy, the chef had the chance to interact with us, it was a pleasure to meet him. I noticed that the restaurant he is running is like a family which cooperates and communicates in a great manner, achieving perfection for each single detail: from the food and the presentation itself, the selection of ingredients and flavors, the service, up to the location. Thank you for this excellent and unique experience!

    Menu was extensive and all of the dishes were of a good size and very tasty. As entrees we shared Arancini, polpette, salumi misti, octopus, trout and an insalata Caprese (all of which were priced from $21.50 to $28.50). All were good but I think the standouts for me were the Aranchini and the octopus.

    Absolutely Exquisite!!! Foglia di Fico provided us with another great night filled with incredible italian cuisine and wine! Thats coming from an Italian Calabrese like me!

  • 5Nicholas W. 11 months ago
    They are open! I have been waiting for this restaurant to reopen. The same attentive staff, the same delicious food and few additional COVID safety measures can ensure the safety of all of us. Dinner is only open 5 days a week. However, there is also a fresh pasta section for you to pick up beautiful pasta on your way home, open for 5 days from 3 pm, and then enter through LaTrobe Street.

    Very nice restaurant with wood panelling that feels both homely and sophisticated once you step inside from Spencer Street. Food is good and the quality is commensurate with the prices, although without any wow factor. Wines by glass were very good too, and in addition to the daily special dishes they also offer special red and white wines of the day. The night we were there they were two unusual Italian varietals: pecorino and ruche.
