Top10 Image
Sarti is a refreshingly sassy restaurant that exudes an unpretentious and hip vibe. The main dining area with its crisp white linen is contrasted by the dark wooden floor and bright red feature wall, wooden slat screens giving it a slightly private feel. The olive tree-lined terrace area offers a fantastic outdoor dining option, especially on those balmy, Melbourne summer nights.

Authentic Italian dining, simple with outstanding flavours. An impressive collection of imported speciality wines, the finest selection of local and imported beers, intriguing artwork and unique pieces to occupy the eye, an interior to impress and an alfresco terrace to allure.

Sarti is a modern Italian restaurant where you can enjoy the time-honoured traditions of Italian cuisine without the clichés. A Melbourne favourite with a contemporary focus on food and style, Sarti is pleased to welcome Head Chef Paolo Masciopinto, who will bring creativity and passion to the table. Guests can enjoy his innovative interpretations of classics as well as his unique signature dishes. Sarti's bar and rooftop terrace offer a CBD sanctuary where guests can enjoy the age-old Italian values of family, friends, food and celebrating life in style.


Hidden down a laneway off Little Collins Street, Sarti is oh-so very Melbourne. An irregular staircase leads the way to this gem, where inner-city style fused with Italian flavours are the order of the day. Inside, Sarti is noticeably black and white with modern artwork and an immense bar in the centre of the dining room. The contemporary style suits both casual and swish occasions – you could sweep in for a drink before a formal event or call in after work with some friends and feel equally at home.

I have been hearing nothing but fantastic reviews about Sarti and finally decided I had to try it for myself! From the moment we walked in the door, we were greeted with the friendliest of gestures. I ordered one of their signature drinks, which was to die for! Although their cocktail list isn't extensive, the ones they do offer definitely make up for it! We left the decision up to our waiter, who brought out a variety of different dishes, keeping in mind our preferences and allergies. The Panzerotti with rabbit and the pasta were both AMAZING and cooked perfectly! We then had their signature dessert of Panna Cotta, which was outstanding. Overall this place is a perfect 10 from the staff, to the food, to the service! I will definitely be back!!!
