Great place Service is excellent, Staff really nice, Food is great and prices are reasonable.
We were celebrating two birthdays and the staff sang happy birthday and gave us a dessert free
1 of the older waitresses was not friendly to Asians. She ignored our repeated requests to clear the table in order for us to enjoy our desserts properly. It spoilt what was otherwise an enjoyable evening.
Food is great, very generous portion sizes and great value for money. We tend to go Easter or Christmas, it’s very convenient that it’s open on those days, no one wants to cook!
Cosey restaurant with friendly attentive waiter. Quite good prices and lots of choices but stick to pasta and traditional dishes. Steak not recommended.
A fun evening: good food, excellent staff! We will return...
Great traditional Italian food. Very busy which meant slightly slow service.
One of the pleasant surprises for dining during our recent trip from the states to Australia was our lunchtime meal at La Spaghettata Italian Restaurant on Lygon Street, Carlton North, Melbourne, VIC. From the moment we approached the colorful exterior street-side dining area of the restaurant, we knew we were in for a special time. Warmly greeted by "Luciano", who had been a waiter in the restaurant for over 30 years, we were given the very best of service as he attended to our every request. For starters we enjoyed the Bruschetta Sicilina, followed by the Entre'e portion of Scampi, the Garden Salad and, finally, Spaghetti with meat sauce. I was pleased that La Spaghettata had Peroni that had been bottled in Roma, Italia. A nearby table had ordered the Cozze Pescatora (black mussels) that looked and smelled equally delicious (perhaps nest time!). I even had a brief moment to speak with the owner of La Spaghettata, Tony Cattafi, and, as we were leaving, his son, Fabio, hailed a taxi for us to insure our safe passage back to our hotel. All-in-all we had a wonderful time and we highly recommend this restaurant - a real gem in Melbourne!
