    A fabulous dining experience! Superb food made fresh on the premises. Helpful, attentive and entertaining wait-staff. Great to support a small but significant local business. We were visiting the region and will be sure to come again, if only to eat at Chachi!!

    Just the best restaurant anywhere near Melbourne. Can’t believe how low the prices are for how good the food is. It’s outstanding - make sure to try the calzone and always get one chocolate chip cookie per person (it’s impossible to share).

    This is a great spot tucked away in relaxed Healesville. We had booked outside, but moved in to the cosy corridor between the kitchen and outside eating. A great lunchtime experience. We will be going back for their $50 p.p extravaganza lunch.

    Very small restaurant but well worth the visit. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Although the delivery of the meal was a little slow as the restaurant was full, it was definitely worth the wait. I had the special Pasta dish (Pipis Pasta) made fresh from scratch on site, which was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.

    Exquisite delicious authentic Italian food. All hand made pizza bases and pasta, relishes and sauces. In the tiniest kitchen I would say in Australia. The best restaurant cafe in the Yarra Valley. A must try for anyone visiting Healesville. The staff are amazing so helpful and knowledgeable. Dog friendly. Seating in the sidewalk as well as limited seating inside. Must book as it fills up quickly.

    Service was slow , hard to get a drink , 3 of our meals took over an hour to arrive and we finished these (not great Carbonara) and the last meal hadn’t arrived. The owner is a nice guy but needs to get the kitchen and front of house humming.

    Thanks for taking the time to review us. We totally agree that your experience was not our best and well below the standard my team set for themselves. I was hoping the discount on the wine was enough to make up for the meals that took too long. Our apologies again and hope you can give us another chance. As you can see from our many great reviews across all platforms, we generally deliver reasonable food, service, ambience and value for money. Kind regards, Themiya

    Even though we are local to this restaurant we hadn't ever eaten dinner there. Everyone was incredibly friendly, the food was so yummy and we'll be going back for sure. We ate inside, and while it is very tiny inside, we still felt very comfortable. Also, the warmer months will mean dining outside will start to become an option, but in the meantime we're happy to eat inside, just need to book ahead.

    thoroughly enjoyed the home-made pasta and pizza. The "hole-in-the-wall" cafe experience and ambience just added to the overall enjoyment. before I forget, the front of house service was great with friendly and knowledgeable staff. and in agreement with what an ex-governor of California once said, "I'll be back"!
