Surviving just a few years is considered a feat in the restaurant world, but L’Osteria has been humming away successfully at 616 Nicholson St, North Fitzroy since 1986. The ornate wooden decor, white tablecloths and traditional Italian and Mediterranean cuisine will make you feel like you’ve taken a step back in time. Private functions for between 10 and 80 guests may be arranged.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
This charming and traditional eatery has long been the locals’ choice for an authentic pizza pie; and although the idea of new ownership had a few regulars worried in 2007, the change has brought creativity and a taste of modernity to L'Osteria, while keeping its much-loved aspects intact. Licensee Satinder Kapoor and his delightful family now run this Nicholson Street restaurant that appropriately takes its name from the Latin word meaning “guest”. Kapoor says innovative dishes – like the home-made gnocchi with blue cheese and pear or the delicious salmon and parmesan pizza – are influenced by a present-day Italian cuisine that boasts creativity and edgy flavour contrasts, rather than relying on comfort favourites from generations gone. A selection of clam and prawn dishes grace the entree menu, while an impressive mains list includes risotti, pasti and pizza – some of which are available for takeaway.

Great wooden pillars give character to the dimly lit and quiet L'Osteria space that has become a destination ristorante for business functions and large groups, as well as the usual family and couple bookings that remain steady. A solid wine list starts at $22 while main menu items begin at $20.
