We were given a gift voucher for this restaurant and decided to bring our family here. Food was outstanding however the restaurant lacked finesse. Upon arrival and being seated a good 5 minutes had passed we had to ask for drinks. Then once we were ready to order they did not advise us of their specials. Once our meals and... More

The people there are genuine, warm and sincere. Very good at explaining the specials of the day, and greatly assisted with the wine selections. Accommodated us with a special birthday and more than happy to please. Food was wonderful and service to match, worth going back

I've now been here 4 times over a number of years - usually for a special occasion like a birthday or a family gathering. Every time the service has been wonderful, the waiters knowledgable and the food absolutely delicious. The food is very rich, and it's very, very easy to over-indulge - but sooo worth it! The pastas are particularly... More

We love going to Sosta's to enjoy a special evening. The staff are attentive and the food is always of a high standard. Last visit I enjoyed the steak tartare and the chicken involentini special. The pasta is fantastic and the zucchini flowers a winner if on the menu. Great ambience and better than most Italian restaurants in the city.

We literally stumbled across Sosta when one of our North Melbourne favourites was closed one Sunday night Oh boy, what a find! Being of Italian heritage ourselves we were impressed with the authenticity of the food, the ambiance & wine collection We highly recommend Sosta

Had a beautiful set menu dinner here with friends for Valentine's Day and the food, wine and service was excellent. Lobster medallions, porcini, steak and dessert all excellent. Great Italian wine as well. Thank you.

Noticed this restaurant on a trip to the local supermarket and liked the look of the food from the menu. The staff are extremely professional and friendly. The meals were delicious, my husband described his lamb as the best he'd eaten! Lots of seafood choices too. My crab linguine was beautiful, as were the vegetables we also ordered. Will be... More
