Italian
The theatre of food at Teatro is synonymous with a Italian marketplace. From delicious selection of Antipasti to Traditional Italian wood-fired pizza, and amazing Pasta dishes Teatro caters for all guests. Whether a quick dinner before a show at the arts centre, a wine or cocktail with the river view or a lunch before heading to the art gallery or the gardens of our beautiful city.
A fresh seasonal produce driven menu inspires our ever-changing Italian cuisine with plenty of vegetarian and Gluten Free options. The theatre itself remains constant, but the food and the menu are constantly evolving. Why not enjoy the stunning views of the Yarra River whilst indulging in some Chianti & dessert on Southbank Promenade.

    Lovely atmosphere to enjoy delicious food with excellent customer service. The restaurant is bustling without being too loud to hear each other and staff are warm, attentive and genuine. Highlights were my husbands chargrilled chicken and the tiramisu!

    Booked several days and came here on a Friday before comedy show at 8pm. We had a great table with view across the restaurant. Food was a touch on the pricey side, but we actually found having entrees with sides was more than filling, all were good serving sizes. All our food was very tasty (Calamari Fritti and Caprese salad delicious) Service was fantastic, and our waitress "Kat" was super attentive and friendly. Definitely returning back! thanks team :)

    We thoroughly enjoyed the Brusetta which was very different to the normal ones! The Marinara Soagetti was Excellent. The Porcini and Mushroom Rissoto was superb. The only thing that we were disappointed with was the Profiterols. They were very dry and weren't fluffy inside like Choux pastry should be. The highlight of the night was the attentiveness of our waitress Sara. She kept coming back to top up our drinks and seeing whether we needed anything else. The Maitre d' was efficient but lacked friendly a greeting and making us feel welcome at the restaurant.

    We had preshow dinner at Teatro. Lucky we booked a table as very busy, with many diners enjoying a meal before show at Hamer Hall. Pasta was beautiful. Drinks lovely.

    Short answer- understaffed, long wait, delicious food but lukewarm. Great location but only go if you have time for a long leisurely dinner. We dined here pre ballet performance, immediately we could see they were understaffed and so mentioned we were on a time frame we had given ourselves 1.5 hours. There seem to be only one waitress in our large outdoor area she was run off her feet. I wish I had got her name as she was fantastic. The food was delicious unfortunately spoiled by coming a long time after ordering and lukewarm. Even our wine ordered as we sat down took over 15 mins to come. With so many options around I won’t rush back.

    The food was good, however the service wasn’t. The food came out quick, probably too quick and it all came together (entree and Main). They didn’t refill out water, nobody checked to see if we wanted more drinks and trying to pay the bill was painful, so slow and confusing as to where we could pay. The staff were arguing with each other and didn’t seem to care that we were stood there trying to pay.

    It was a busy night sure, but we had booked ten days prior so really expected a little better service. The food was fine, but a glass of wine and a soft drink ordered never arrived, and nor did coffee ordered at the end of the meal. There was so much going on in Melbourne this weekend, they should have prepared for that.

    We planned this as a post-ballet special occasion. The service was excellent, the waitstaff patient and prompt. We had a six year old with us who was a little restless after three hours of ballet, and they brought her food first which was very thoughtful. The food was absolutely delicious! My linguini was the best I have ever tasted. Everyone enjoyed their meals very much. Our request for a table suitable to include an elderly guest and a young child was honoured and we were very comfortable! Music not so loud that everyone had to shout! All in all a splendid event! One to remember!
