Quite disappointing. Food was ok, service was friendly enough but do not be fooled. Fish was watery and the pasta a little too rich. It was a meal to forget.

Von is on a busy street with lots of restaurant owners actively announcing deals as you walk by. We thought the deal at Vons was good and the restaurant looked busy. The deal was free starter and free glass of wine + 10% off the...More

I had the feeling I’d made a mistake the minute I sat down and my eyes adjusted to the low light. Dirty shabby mish mash interior did not inspire confidence. The cannelloni was served in a bowl with huge pools of oil sitting on top...More

Before the restaurant was even open the waitress, Stephanie was giving good service, advivising that they would be open soon. Because of that we came back. The meal was excellent and the service was exceptional. That you Stephanie.

Was enticed by the sweet talking host’s offer of free drink and entree. Entree was trio of dips which was nothing special - three dips spooned on a plate with 4 pieces of bread on top. Mains were the Caesar salad and cannelloni - Caesar...More

We were lured in by the free drink offered by the host out front. The staff were attentive and friendly but something about the place felt a miss. My son even said he was waiting for Gordon Ramsey to start yelling how bad this place...More

Sadly Vons has gone downhill 😏. We have always paid a visit for dinner when in Melb but tonight's experience has turned us off returning. Lamb shanks were dry and red wine glaze was burnt. Cannellini was swimming in sauce and cheese with 'salad' sitting...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You

corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
