Just when you think there isn't room for another restaurant in St Kilda, one opens up in an unlikely location on a busy corner next to Coles. Itali.Co is a fun busy restaurant serving delicious Italian food. I had to try the famed bunga bunga pizza and it did not disappoint. The desserts were delicious too and I highly recommend leaving some room for them. The arancini balls and wine were delicious- lots of lovely, regional wines from Italy.
Good food, disappointing service. We dined here for the first time recently and whilst the place was really buzzing it was let down by poor service. Upon arrival we were seated quickly but then left for a long time. When we did get served we decided to order the wine and food together to avoid a further wait. We shared the bunga bunga pizza (which I enjoyed but my partner didn't) and arancini balls (which I found very herby). The chips were hand made and crunchy. Again when we went to leave the service fell down. We waited and waited to get them to collect our credit card. A newly arrived table walked out in frustration at the service and no one noticed them leave. Perhaps it was an 'off' night, we may go back but they need to step it up a notch on the service front.
