L’Osteria Carlton North is without a doubt, one of Melbourne’s most authentic and iconic Italian restaurants. As traditional as it gets, this Nicholson Street Italian restaurant draws in Italian expats and Melbourne foodies from far and wide – for very good reason. Cosy and warm, the menu at L’Osteria is brimming with all the classics you’d expect to see on the rustic trattorias and osterias throughout Italy. We love starting with the seafood platter for two and the L’Osteria antipasto platter, before freshly made carbonara, veal scallopini cooked in white wine and lemon or one of the traditional pizzas. With gluten-free and vegetarian options available, everyone is more than catered for here, so reserve a table and discover what the fuss is all about at L’Osteria in Carlton North. You won’t be disappointed.
