Trattoria Emilia is an authentic Italian restaurant focusing on seasonal produce and fresh pasta. Head chefs Francesco Rota and Luca Flammia hail from Modena in Emilia Romagna.

At Trattoria Emilia we seasonally change the menu and source a large majority of our produce from regional Victoria, our meat is organic and sustainably grown in Tasmania and Victoria and we import some of the best Italian DOC products. Some dishes that are not to be missed are our Tortelloni Emiliani and the crowd favourite salumi misti with gnocco fritto and tigelle served with mortadella mousse.

Rustic, yet refined, Trattoria Emilia boasts fantastic ambience, attentive and professional service whilst all the while remaining a great casual dining spot perfect for a quick lunch, a long relaxing dinner with friends and has always been a romantic date spot.

    The service was smooth but unobtrusive, the food was just as I imagined, having chosen the venue from the Age Good Food guide, and the range of drinks offered by the glass was very good, also the alcohol free options. I will certainly return.

    It is always an absolutely pleasure to take my friends or family to Trattoria Emilia, and tonight was no different. We were headed to see Chicago and had to leave by a certain time, all the staff were beyond helpful & accomodating. The Italian authenticity, flavours and value here are second to none - my favourite place in the city.

    A must visit restaurant if you love Italian food, wine and warm hospitality. Every time I have been, the menu has been outstanding. The wine list is perfect and and diverse. The Italian wines on the list are very well priced and delicious. In a city with many impressive Italian eateries this sits comfortably on the very top echelon with a select few. Highly recommended.

    From the moment I walked through the fort, I thought I was in a trattoria in Italy. This cosy restaurant has a beautiful ambience with intimate tables and lighting. The staff are attentive and add to the experience by being Italian. They know the menus well and expertly explained the various ways some dishes could be served. The Tiramisu ‘their way’ is an absolute must and one big reason why I’d return. It is unbelievable - a sensory delight. Thank you for looking after us so well.

    Absolutely amazing. The restaurant, the staff, and the food were all just so great. That tiramisu was the best any of us had ever had and we’ve all been to Italy and had it there too. Glad we could walk home to our hotel to help us all digest it. Will definitely be back next time we’re in Melbourne!
