Description: You might have seen us down Flinders Lane, in the historic Swiss House building. It's the red brick building on the corner of Duckboard Place (ACDC Lane). You can walk or tram to a number of theatres, concert and sporting venues from our front door, which means we're actually the perfect stop for drinks and a bite to eat before or after the show/concert/match. Plus, we take bookings which can be hard to find in our neck of the woods. This is our story... Pizza, pasta and mozzarella are our thing. We love having guests over to visit. You can come in off the street or give us a shout beforehand to book a spot. We're very accommodating, and not to blow our own horn, have a certain something something. Oh, and we have one of the most handsome Italian's in Melbourne as our pizza chef. Fact.

“Delightful, Delicious, Real Food!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We dined at Terra Rossa in Flinders Lane in Melbourne on Saturday night and were so delighted by the extensive wonderful menu of immediately recognisable dishes! These days it can be hard to know exactly what's on your plate and questionable whether you really want to injest it! Not the case here - a huge selection ranging from vegetarian options, pizza, pasta, all the way up to wonderful steaks and superbly cooked seafood options. All supported by an excellent wine menu and equally exciting dessert choices! The restaurant is situated in an old building like much of Melbourne city, it is rustic with a warm and welcoming ambiance, we were comfortably seated alongside a brick wall tastefully festooned by flickering tea candles. We were a party of six and everyone thorougly enjoyed their meals. Very reasonably priced, good place for young and old with an Italian accent and an abundance of fabulous (normal) fare!
Would reccommend this place to anyone who wants wonderful, wholesome, delicious, well priced fabulous food who are sick of scrolling through menus full of unrecognisable, unpronounceable and unpalatable absurditees!
Thank you Terra Rossa!
We will be back for certain and we will bring others!

“Moody morsels!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

A great little find in the backstreet of Melbourne. A nice relaxing place for drinks with friends, loved ones or business. Great ambience with candles, tunes and of course great bites. I had the pork belly with apple and fennel, a side of asparagus with prosciutto and a rich chocolate ganache for dessert. The staff were warm and friendly and I cannot recommend them high enough.

Service was good with Kate our waitress offering advice on food and drink. Good atmosphere and not a long time to wait for your food.
