This is the second time I have had the pleasure of dining at Sosta Cucina in North Melbourne and by family agreement this is now rated as the best classic Italian restaurant we know. I say classic but while the flavours are classic, the presentation is modern and the meal sizes are absolutely spot on. This is a small restaurant... More

There are not many genuine, real Italian restaurants left in Melbourne. Sosta Cucina in Errol Street, North Melbourne, is one of the exceptions! There is a very reasonably-priced business lunch offered Tuesday to Friday. On Mondays the restaurant is closed. The sarters and the mains are innovative, fresh, and sometimes different, if not exotic. You really fell confident that tere... More

We had a lovely dinner at Sosta Cucina, which was recommended by our Airbnb host, himself Italian. The service was excellent, too.

Lunch for my bday, 2.5hrs went at the blink of an eye, Adriano made our day, easily it is the best restaurant experience we ever had. Unbelievable selection of Italian food and matching drinks, every next dish is even better than the previuos one, deserts at the end made us speachless. Bravi sosta cucina!

I frequently eat in and around Errol Street North Melbourne but had not noticed Sosta Cucina. Finally I decided to try it. After trying it I have eaten there four times in three weeks. Put simply, the food is truly excellent with really good wine at reasonable prices and great service. But for me it's all about the food. The... More

The service and food are excellent! Whilst rather busy, the staff were attentive but not overwhelming. From their creative daily special menu - I selected the slow cooked beef cheek and it was superb. I was dining with a friend who is vegetarian and there was more then one option available for them to select which is refreshing. Also they... More

Enjoyed a lovely leisurely Sunday lunch with 5 others. The service was impeccable, our waiter explained the dishes well. No complaints on presentation of our shared entrees, the calamari was exceptional. Bread and olive oil complimentary. My linguini with swimmer crab was perfectly cooked and very tasty. Doughnuts for dessert were amazing. Wine list was extensive but expensive. All in... More

I really always love coming back here. Amazing Italian cuisine. The menu never ceases to impress me. Extremely tasty seasonal dishes. I'm never disappointed. Excellent wait staff who are professional and personable. They remember you each time you visit. This restaurant is slick and smart without being pretentious. Really excellent.
