Fig.1 Reconsidered

Introducing Sosta Ristorante. 
The rejuvenated culinary jewel nestled in the heart of North Melbourne.

After 16 remarkable years, we bid a fond farewell to the team and management behind the beloved institution known as Sosta Cucina.

Under new ownership, we proudly usher in a brand-new era and embrace an elegant renovation, a new culinary direction and a luxury wine cellar.

The reimagined menu draws on inspiration from how regions throughout Italy locally source ingredients.

Utilising Australia’s native ingredients along with classic, strong Italian cooking methods and traditions to combine new flavour profiling on the plate.
