Italian
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.

Excellent range of food. We had the set menu which covered a wide range of delicious courses & allowed due dietary requirements. Pizzas were extra yummy. Great night out!

The food was excellent but the service very average. Water glasses were placed on the table but the water came 10 minutes later. The Salami board was served minus the bread, had to ask for it. Our drink order was taken but instead of taking it to the bar our waiter went outside to serve 2 other tables, so a longer than necessary wait. If the service was improved thus would be a great spot.

The service was excellent and friendly. We were asked whether we had a theatre booking and were given our meals with plenty of time to enjoy them and a good red wine before heading off to Harry Potter. We had a number of share plates which were very good.

Great food and atmosphere at Ombra. Our family had dinner on Saturday night and enjoyed pizza, share plates and drinks. The staff are fabulous and the food was great. The pumpkin, cauliflower, brisket, meatballs, mushrooms and Margherita pizza dishes were fresh and tasty.

Pizza was excellent quality. The menu was hard to decipher; a lot of ingredients that required googling before selection was possible, this was a bit annoying and seemed overly fussy. We had 3 waiters, all were good, one expectional.

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.
