Guy Grossi has created a Melbourne staple, and his menu features a selection of the best local cured meats, fresh produce and fine wine. On the floor, you’ll enjoy the endearing hospitality and expertise of Chef Grossi’s son, Carlo. You can dine at a street-side table, have a cosy first date in the intimate bar area or head upstairs for a casual meal with friends.
The range of fresh, simple dishes is big on flavour. Pork sausage with fennel and barley is a hearty dish that showcases the quality of the restaurant’s house-made small goods. Rich sausage pieces are served in a light gravy with fennel slices on top. House-milled polenta is warm and creamy, and topped with a mix of diced seasonal vegetables in a flavoursome tomato-based sauce. It’s the perfect dish for a cool day.
PSST! There’s a baker on-site, so you’ll enjoy fresh, crusty bread hot from the oven (plus amazing damper-like gluten-free rolls!).
