About the restaurant
Trattoria Emilia is an authentic Italian restaurant focusing on seasonal produce and fresh pasta. Head chefs Francesco Rota and Luca Flammia hail from Modena in Emilia Romagna.

At Trattoria Emilia we seasonally change the menu and source a large majority of our produce from regional Victoria, our meat is organic and sustainably grown in Tasmania and Victoria and we import some of the best Italian DOC products. Some dishes that are not to be missed are our Tortelloni Emiliani and the crowd favourite salumi misti with gnocco fritto and tigelle served with mortadella mousse.

Rustic, yet refined, Trattoria Emilia boasts fantastic ambience, attentive and professional service whilst all the while remaining a great casual dining spot perfect for a quick lunch, a long relaxing dinner with friends and has always been a romantic date spot.

About the restaurant
A contemporary Japanese dining experience, Warabi emphasises seasonal ingredients and elevated beverage pairings in an Omakase setting, celebrating the Kappo style of cuisine philosophy.

The Kappo dining experience at Warabi is a set menu that changes at the discretion of the head chef, whose detailed focus is on preparing courses based on the availability of the finest seasonal ingredients. A casual yet refined dining experience, Kappo directly translates to ‘cut and cook' and celebrates the chefs' craftsmanship and precise preparation techniques.

The multi-course 'Impression' menu is guided by the chef and changes daily, where the energy of dishes reflects the seasons and highest quality of ingredients available.

About the restaurant
Located right on the edge of Sydney Harbour with the Opera House just beyond your fingertips…it doesn’t get any more Sydney than The Dining Room.

Our produce-driven menu is paired back, sustainable and unmistakably Australian, and shares center stage with unrivalled harbour views. Relaxed and elegant, enjoy the freshest of

OTTO celebrates people, place and la dolce vita. Located on the absolute riverfront at South Bank, OTTO Ristorante and OTTO Osteria bring a vibrant glamour to the Queensland dining scene. Striking river views and colourful interiors meet warm and assured service. The food at OTTO is delicious and unashamedly simple, taking inspiration from the southern regions of Italy.

Inspired by his love for Italian varietals, Alan Hunter has written a list that will capture any wine lover’s attention, with a decisive line up of classic and esoteric Italian regions and varietals.

The food was truly outstanding. Loved the new tasting menu and all the treats were a credit ti the chef and his talent. The only suggestion I could offer is that the waiters night be a little more consistent in offering drinks to those who are not wine drinkers. The cocktails were exceptional and we would have ordered more but perhaps they knew tomorrow was a work day. Lol
