In the heart of North Melbourne's burgeoning food precinct sits Sosta Cucina, a welcoming space delivering fine Northern Italian cuisine with warm and familiar service. Since opening its doors in May 2007, Sosta Cucina has consistently impressed and excited Melbourne's food community with a traditional meets contemporary Northern Italian inspired menu. Owner Maurice Santucci and newly appointed Head Chef Aaron Read have successfully combined over 30 years of experience and mutual passion for "good, unpretentious Italian food" to produce a dynamic menu that like Sosta itself, is elegant yet informal. Sosta Cucina's menu is constantly evolving; incorporating the best seasonal produce as well showcasing fantastic Italian products. On offer is a selection of daily additional dishes depending on what is sourced at the market! Sosta prides itself on a great selection of fine Italian wines as well as offering a broad selection from Australia's most renowned wine regions.
