Modern Australian Restaurants Melbourne

About Us

Our Story

Where It All Began

Yes, there are already plenty of Italian and modern Australian restaurants in Melbourne. But when I decided to embark on a mission to open a restaurant, my mindset was clear. I wanted to deliver high quality, beautifully prepared food that didn’t break the bank. I wanted a family-friendly place with a casual ambience. 

Now that Rick’s Place is open, I knew that I have achieved my objective. 

For those of you who would want to try a whole new dining experience, I encourage you to visit my restaurant. My invitation extends to locals of Melbourne and all other foodies out there who are looking to try a unique dining experience.


Food with a twist is my motto.

Rick’s Place is an Italian/Modern Australian restaurant that serves a fine selection of Starters and Mains. The dishes that we serve are prepared to tempt your eyes, and at the same time, excite your taste buds. Every dish that comes out from our kitchen are guaranteed to be presented neatly to excite your inner desires. 

Why do we do this? Our team believes that exceptional food is an art form. That said, we have sought after the expertise and services of some of the city’s most renowned culinary professionals to help us come up with a well-balanced menu.

Amazing Culinary Experience

Rick’s Place was an amazing culinary experience. The staff was great and knowledgeable of the menu. They also offered impeccable service. I have this feeling that the chef loves what he’s doing as his passion reflects on how he prepares, cooks, and serves the food – delicate and well-prepared for.
