La Notte is arguably one of the most iconic restaurants in Melbourne and has been operating since 1985.

We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days per week.

Our food is inspired by Southern Italian traditional cuisine. This, coupled with the freshest Australian produce is the core element for real, authentic and the best value for money culinary experience.

The owner, Lino is fastidiously committed to bring diners the freshest produce from our local providers. In fact, 90% of our produce is provided by suppliers located within 4 km radius from La Notte.

Our buzzing "al fresco" dining area accommodates over 100 people and is the ideal place to relax over a meal and enjoy the "Lygon St Italian-style passeggiata all year round.

La Notte also has an equally expansive in door dining area with a large function room for private parties, seminars and large meetings.

Two large car parks are located within three minutes walk and parking is readily available in the surrounding areas.

Our commitment to you is to ensure that you have a memorable experience. This is our promise!

Buon appetito
