  • Ferrari 488 Spider Launch

    The World Loves Melbourne imbibed the exclusive spectacular Ferrari 488 Spider launch in Melbourne. This was very first appearance in Australia following the premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. Sexy in the extreme, we succumbed to the allure of the Ferrari 488 Spider. The Ferrari 488 Spider is the latest chapter in Maranello’s ongoing history of open-top V8 sports cars, a story that started with the targa-top version of the 308 GTB - the immortal 308 GTS - and which ultimately resulted in the full convertible Spider architecture.

    Mr Collins Smart Italian in Collins Square

    Mr Collins is a sharp addition to the Docklands end of Collins Street boasting fine Italian cuisine at every price point. Come here for fine gourmet pizzas or for inventive piadino's and baguettes. The coffee is also excellent. Grab a tasty selection from the counter or sit back for table service where tattoed and hip Italian speaking staff will engage you.

     

    Mr Collins is a refreshing addition and while next to the food court, has the feel of a smart casual dining restaurant. A modern fit out with tiles and chic chairs and tables, entices. Display cabinets are full of hanging meats and cheeses. How good is this? We've been looking for some more sophisticated options in the precinct! 

     

    Check out the treats from the front cabinet (above). Even the croissants are made with gourmet ham and cheese. And the Italian cakes impress, including the decadent Bomolini's with choice of custard or Nutella fillings. I've given up visiting at lunchtime and trying not to buy the Bombolini - resistance is futile! The baguettes are so fresh and full of gourmet ingredients, notably the salmon and the tuna.

     

    Mr Collins pours an excellent coffee and is a top notch destination for breakfast.

     

    Mr Collins has a tone of conviviality with gregarious staff and an attitude of good times and fun. Staff often joke between each other, but at the end of the day the service is serious.

     

    I could have posted more of the food I've eaten here, but I do fancy some of their breakfast treats like this spinach and egg piadina.

     

    And the egg and bacon version...

     

    Mr Collins cooks up a fabulous pizza including Primavera, San Daniele, Capricciosa and Caprese. They even make gourmet salads including Black quinoa and Caprese salads. Or check out the home made pastas such as Gnocchi Sorrentina and Ravioloni Burro and Salvia.

    Some would love the Cured meats and Cheese boards, and you can design your own board!

    Mr Collins has something for everyone and is well worth a visit. A great place for taking clients also. Highly recommended.
