Il Solito Posto, Melbourne

A little while ago, Tim and I again dined at Il Solito Posto (meaning "The Usual Place"), an Italian restaurant entered via a Melbourne laneway.  You can read about our first visit here.

On this occasion, we received some delicious bread to go with the antipasto della casa at the top of this post ($19 for one, which we shared):

It was absolutely scrumptious.  I particularly loved the mozzarella balls.

Tim again had the pork and beef meatballs, but this time, for main, I went with the daily special of cannelloni:

It tasted as wonderful as it looks, with plenty of sauce to flavour the filling.

For dessert, Tim had this wonderful raspberry crostata with chocolate icecream and cream:

while I opted for some wonderful zeppole (Italian donuts) with chocolate sauce that I forgot to photograph, but here's the evidence that they were good: 

Il Solito Posto is a terrific place to enjoy good Italian food, but I recommend booking - they always seem to be very busy.

Mozzarella Balls are the best, Gaye! As a matter of fact, everything about this meal is fantabulous! I absolutely adore zeppole but, I've never had them with chocolate sauce! Sprinkled with powdered sugar yes, chocolate NO! That could be deliciously dangerous, lol...

Thank you so much for sharing, I'm hungry, lol...

Il Solito Posto sounds and looks fantastic. The photo of the platter you shared is crazy wonder you shared it, I can't think that one person could eat all of that!! Fun to see and hear about the places you go and see the food you eat. Thanks for sharing.
