We had my daughters first birthday here recently and could not be happier! The food was great, they set up the middle section for our entire group for 50+ people. Every time we looked up there was a waiter asking our guests for drinks or if they were happy with the meal. The service really was excellent. Thank you Tony for all your efforts we were extremely happy!

Traditional Italian dishes and pizzas in one of the more traditional and upmarket places at this end of Lyon Street. The interior offers more formal dining while the outside seating is more casual, and a lovely place to eat on a sunny day. Staff are efficient and friendly.

Went here for my birthday dinner. Excellent food! The only thing I would recommend they change. We ordered an Antipasto entree. They served olives with pitts in them. Why? This is dangerous for a restaurant. If not for that...I'd have given 5 stars. And I don't do that very often.**please change your olives

Very much enjoy my meals at this Lygon Street Institution. The service is always friendly and the Caesar Salad is right up there with one of the best in Town.. washed down with a very solid G&T and it makes fir a great lunch or early dinner.

Outstanding Italian dining in an elegant but relaxed setting. Located in the heart of Lygon Street copperwood restaurant is a star. Beautiful pasta, delicious pizza, and excellent service form a well-rounded dining experience. The pork belly rigatoni is truly amazing and definitely worth a try.

Friendly, prompt service and fantastic food. Mushrooms on capricciosa were bursting with flavour. Lamb shank mostly tender.

Terrible service... Took an hour for food to come out despite tables who rocked up after us being served before us. My wife ordered a wine that did not arrive and when checking out and airing our issues they simply told us "it's Saturday night"..No apologies or any sort of remorse shown just excuses and dead pan expressions....Food was average but nothing out of the ordinary for Lygon st. Could go anywhere on Lygon st and get similar/better food but with much better service.Very disappointed.

It is such a shame that these kind of places exist, there is so much wrong with this establishment and a health department visit is long overdue. Poor food, Poor service & Poor attitudes make for an unforgivable trifecta in hospitality. This place only exists because of naive tourists who would do far better at Dominos. Stone age menu, caveman service and bad attitudes do not fair well in the restaurant business. If they make a mistake heaven forbid, you pay anyway. Just an insight into this tourist trap which should be investigated fined and shutdown by the health department. Give this place a wide berth unless food poisoning is something you enjoy. I walked out and gave the owner a tip on which oriface he should file his inflated bill in. Absolute disgrace.

One of the few Italian restaurants to retain the 'old-school' feel in Lygon Street and without the annoying spruikers. Great Italian fare and a place always worth a visit if you're in Melbourne. Great food, service and atmosphere.

It used to be a nice place but it has lost its appeal.

Can't split bill and can only get two receipts so not good for big work crowds. The old man is beautiful. And the food is great

Fantastic service! We were only there for dessert which was very sweet, not for everyone. Excellent coffee and hot chocolate though

Pretty happy with the evening, good food, good service, good wine list. The menu is very traditional, old school Italian. Don't expect new styles, taste sensations or extravagant presentation, just hearty old style Italian.

The food was delicious and portions are generous. However the waiter made us feel like we were in the way. When a larger group arrived next to us, he did all but juggle daggers to impress them. Meanwhile we were seated in a corner by the cakes display and squished even further not to obstruct the view of them. Would have been better if they just turned us down, no room at the inn, as clearly they couldn't manage.

Rude lady wouldn't let us split bill but the kind Italian waiter let us literally the day before. Great food though! Lovely ambience

Had dinner here last night & been a few times before. Food is delicious, fresh, great value for money & generous potions. Plus- they are very flexible if you want to change anything on the menu. Pasta was fantastic! Lovely & warm inside with very clean toilets. Owner Tony is very friendly & is understandably proud of what he does. Highly recommend. Will be back. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

I love eating here.. make sure you try to get a table away from any large groups in the rear though. Can be hard to hear. A good staple in Lygon Street.

Absolutely amazing service and the pasta was the best I've had in a long time. I've already suggested this place to a few others and I'll definitely return...3 desserts for 2 people... Worth it 😂. Thank you!

Beautiful place, atmosphere was very Italian, large tables so you aren’t cramped. Menu was extensive which is always good. But food was very average. I had the Spaghetti Marinara and it was salty, the seafood didn’t taste fresh and it lacked flavour. Service was pathetic. Arrogant server and they don’t accept split bills. And didn’t want to remove two plates which were never received nor ordered by us. They were just on the bill somehow?!

A nice warm humble venue. Food and wine delious. Service was alright. Was confusing having two people serving us in our section which lead to miscommunication which lead to an almost argument from one of the staff. Easily resolved. Just destroyed the mood thats all. The food is really nice.

It’s been close to a decade since I’ve been to Lygon Street. The area has changed so much over the years and, sadly, lost a fair amount of the old world charm I remember. What has somehow managed to maintain its atmosphere whilst keeping up with the times is Copperwood. This historic Italian restaurant still has great food and lovely service. Even though the surroundings on Lygon Street felt foreign, Copperwood felt warm and familiar. Definitely worth a visit.

Have been here many times over so many years. The food is quite good and the tiramisu divine. However, feel like the decor hasn't changed and has dated over the years. Some staff in trying to be professional can be a little unfriendly.

Expensive and pretty ordinary service in that it was slow when there were only 2 other tables and one waiter in particular tossed a menu at us, took our plates before we'd finished. Would expect that if we were late to a booking and had a Groupon or something, but we walked in off the street and ordered full price main, entrees, wine etc. at 530 in the afternoon.

It was an awesome pasta night if you wanted something else you should have cooked your own at home. Hardly anything on the menu 31/12/2019

Decent food but awful service. We went to dinner on Saturday night at 7:30pm and weren't given our meals until 9:10pm!! We asked our Waiter multiple times how long our food would be once it reached the hour mark and he just kept saying 2-3 minutes. When we went to pay for the bill we asked the lady at the counter for a discount and she said no because it's Saturday night and the big tables make it busy. She was rude and non-apologetic at all. We were not the only people complaining about the wait and will definitely not return!

Amazing authentic Italian yumminess. I just farewelled a good friend and it was sad but at least we had an amazing meal. They were happy to change a few toppings and make our pizza to our liking. I’ll definitely be back and bring all my friends for the great Italian food. You should try it! Best pizza crust!

Yum yum. I will not go into to much detail but went to this place on the easter long weekend and did not wait for a table. The service was quick the portion sizes on point and will be going back when in melbourne again. The photos i have posted with this review dont do it justice but hopefully it might help you make the choice to visit Copperwood.
