Italian
Deli-cafe by day, elegant-restaurant by night. Tesoro Gastronomia is a testament to the belief that a dining experience need not be fussy to be fantastic.

In the evening, the ever-changing chef’s menu pays homage to our Italian roots, presented in a modern context, we explore Italian cuisine's greatest hits whilst taking advantage of the beauty and bounty of seasonal local ingredients.

Tesoro exists to share our passion for the beauty and simplicity of Italian cuisine, and 100% of profits are either donated to local charities or used to sponsor the arts & events in the local community. As a collective, we recognise that our parents & grandparents sacrificed to give our generation the gifts of opportunity & prosperity; so Tesoro was created in their honour to pay their legacy forward.

    I cannot recommend this gem of restaurant enough. I have been many times enjoying all the regional specialties of Italy. The concept of Giro d'Italia is fantastic. Franca and the staff are wonderful and happily explain every course. Every dish from antpasta to dessert has been fabulous. Tesoro Gastronomia has become a real find in my own neighbourhood .

    Each dish served was excellent! For us there was a lot of food but it would have been fine for my husband! I loved receiving a call before the night asking if we had any particular requests, allergies, etc. The seating, especially at the two place tables, have one seat in an awkward position but there's not much to do about that. The drinks were delicious! Staff members were also excellent. My old ears had trouble hearing what was said but the ambience was very good.

    Tesoro Gastronomia is an amazing restaurant set in a quiet neighbourhood shopping strip. Really, it would be hard to find a more authentic Italian dining experience anywhere in Melbourne. The regionally inspired set menu is lovingly executed by staff who really care. Service is warm and welcoming. The value, for what you are getting is exceptional...

    The Giro D'Italia dining concept is excellent and the food on the night was very good quality without being excessive. I will head back for other regional menus but the venue also show a very good lunch menu as well so will become a local favorite.
