Ombra is based on the ideals of preservation. Inspired by the ‘Salumerie’ of Italy Ombra focuses on delivering highest quality cured meats. This preservation refers to the produce as well as the preservation of lifestyle and culture.
This makes the most of nature’s abundance by using techniques that for centuries have prolonged nature’s bounty through processes like drying, smoking, salting, fermenting, pickling and candying.

9 of us had dinner at Ombra for my partners birthday. We had the Chef's Selection. The food was great and so was the service. We really felt looked after. Pizza Patate, Gnocchi Tiroletti and the Profiterol were especially delicious.

Looking for a pre-show meal, Ombra was an excellent choice.

Innovative food, a good range of drinks, good service topped off with great gelato outside on a pleasant Melbourne late afternoon.

Can highly recommend it for a light meal and drinks.
(for a big night out, go next door to big brother, Grossi Florentino)

The food was stunningly good. Very interesting and innovative. Fun to share several different plates. Wine was maybe a little pricey.

Food was beautiful as always but disappointed that pasta dishes were no longer available, only pizza or smaller dishes. Regardless, the pizza was excellent.

One of the wait staff was attentive and wore his mask properly, and the entire time. Another of the wait staff was not wearing his mask properly, with his nose exposed, and attended our table which was extremely disappointing, given the current covid-19 outbreaks.

I took my hubby to Ombra for his first time. We had a great experience! Cosy ambience, delicious food made with high quality ingredients. We had prosciutto San Daniele with freshly baked bread, tasty crocchette with mortadella and pecorino and then two amazing pizzas (the classic Margherita and Patate&Pancetta) all combined with a good Italian beer and a fruity Italian white wine. The managers Simona and Micky, Angelina and the rest of the staff were super friendly, attentive to our needs and requests and very professional. I felt like I was home (Italy). We also had the pleasure to meet Chef Guy Grossi, he was very friendly and chatty. It was a lovely Sunday evening! We will surely come back!

Guy Grossi knows what he's doing when it comes to great salumi, cheese, pizza and Italian desserts. He actually greeted my family on entering the restaurant and was chuffed that we were celebrating my mother-in-law's 85th birthday. The food is simple and simply excellent, and the sharing menu is great value. A truly wonderful meal and experience!

Had dinner here and it was great. Wait staff suggested the pre-set menu which was hand picked by the chef and it was fantastic. They were even able to accommodate our request to have all vegetarian dishes.

The ambience is very good and the wine selection is also top notch.

Overall had a great time and would recommend.
