Osteria Renata is a neighbourhood diner inspired by Italy. Hosting friends, family and colleagues at the dinner table. Headed up by duo Chef / Owner Angus Cadden and Restaurateur / Owner Alex Ghaddab, our menu features inventive and classic pasta dishes, created in our designated pasta lab, as well as a seasonal selection of antipasti, larger plates, side dishes and desserts. Some of our classics include our gnocco fritto with 36 month aged Jamon Iberico, our spaghetti with Live Southern Rock Lobster and brodetto and our Mushroom filled Quadratti with parmagianno Reggiano. The old world bar, fashioned by hand from fine American oak, offers a full selection of artisanal spirits, amari, craft Italian beer, a dialled in cocktail program and a pan euro-Italian slanting wine list, appeasing any discerning palette. Wether it be in our main dining room, a perch at the bar, or an alfresco seat on High St, we look forward to welcoming you!

    My spaghetti/vodka dish was one of the tastiest meals I’ve had in months, and perfectly accompanied by a wonderful Pinot noir as suggested by the waitress - all around an excellent experience!!!

    Fantastic meal! Loved our little private booth, but the loud noise from their outdoor area and kitchen was distracting. Lovely service staff and delicious food. Can’t wait to visit again :)

    First time visitors, loved it. Will have to go back and be really hungry so that more of the menu can be enjoyed. An elegant space thats warm and friendly, there is nothing intimidating about this venue. Great friendly Italian service…caio.

    11/10 as always! This is honestly one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne. The staff are beautiful and the food is always delicious. Highly recommend the ragù or the vodka pasta because both are divine! Thank you so much Team Osteria for always making my visits so wonderful!

    The staff was pleasant and Efficient. We came back to give Osteria Renata another try. We were both disappointed that the food was unimpressive and expensive. As locals to the area we hoped that this could be the go to restaurant but now we won’t be back.
