DETAILS
The Restaurant lies at the heart of Grossi Florentino’s gastronomical palace. For eighty-five years, Grossi Florentino has satiated the palettes of Melbournians who have embraced the authentic Italian hospitality and highest quality dishes served. The restaurant is open six days a week, offering quality produce and an extensive list of local and imported wines. Grossi’s deep belief in tradition as the foundation for innovation, is the magic behind the restaurant’s success. The winding central staircase that leads to The Restaurant’s opulent dining room has become as iconic as the building itself. The expansive premise houses not only the fine dining restaurant, but also a grill, cellar bar. Set in the original premises, with a rich history spanning over a century, the Grossi Florentino building, with its famous Australian murals by Napier Waller which line the walls is an ode to Italy and Melbourne.

The Grill at Grossi Florentino offers the option of a special lunch menu from midday, during the week, and a pre theatre dinner menu from 5:45pm to 7:30pm, Monday-Saturday as well as a la carte. Dishes such as Moonlight flat oysters from Batemans Bay are served fresh with lime dressing, while indulgent desserts include three varieties of rich plantation chocolate. For larger functions more akin to a royal banquet, Grossi Florentino’s historic rotisserie will satisfy, impress and inspire. The extensive wine list has been compiled by sommelier Mark Protheroe who has swished, tasted and smelt his way to perfecting his craft; a journey which has taken him to every corner of the globe. From local drops to lesser-known imported wines, Mark has created a wine list that challenges ideas of what makes wine beautiful and encourages diners to try something new.
