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!

    I had the 250g Wagyu Rump steak - it was incredibly tender and the side salad + grilled broccolini were absolutely beautiful. The other three meals, 2 x pork cutlets and a spaghetti al nero were much praised by my fellow diners. We also had Antipasti - polenta crisp, roasted Jerusalem artichoke and fried brussels sprouts - all were delicious as were the shared desserts, limoncello syrup cake and yoghurt panna cotta. We were two couples celebrating the birth of our granddaughter, the food, service and ambiance complimented our festive spirit in a fabulous way. I couldn't recommend the restaurant more highly.
