PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Bar Alto is corrugated iron-cool and chilled out, attracting Powerhouse patrons and diners alike. Looking out over the water, the menu is not the only Italian-inspired element of Bar Alto; the homely food, espressos and wine list nods to its culinary origin while the open plan kitchen and sleek, modern decor bring a little Venetian class to Brisbane. Simple black leather couches, high tables and stools, plus comfortable dining areas which splay out onto a verandah make Bar Alto ideal for coffee any morning of the week, lunch on a lazy Sunday or dinner for two.

Popular among the eclectic Powerhouse regulars, Bar Alto has built up a loyal clientele of its own – a testament to its relaxed and fine dining appeal. Post-theatre diners mingle with comedy gig audience members and rock‘n'roll fans. Whether it is home-made pappardelle with goat ragu, zucchini fritters or pan-seared Queensland scallops and veal sweetbreads, Bar Alto doesn't disappoint. Then there's fresh brioche with figs and ice-cream, cappuccinos and an impressive wine list, which includes Italian exports like Moscato d'Asti. This classic Italian meets modern Brisbanite is refined, accessible and suitable for almost any occasion.
