Trattoria Emilia is an authentic Italian restaurant focusing on seasonal produce and fresh pasta. Head chefs Francesco Rota and Luca Flammia hail from Modena in Emilia Romagna.

At Trattoria Emilia we seasonally change the menu and source a large majority of our produce from regional Victoria, our meat is organic and sustainably grown in Tasmania and Victoria and we import some of the best Italian DOC products. Some dishes that are not to be missed are our Tortelloni Emiliani and the crowd favourite salumi misti with gnocco fritto and tigelle served with mortadella mousse.

Rustic, yet refined, Trattoria Emilia boasts fantastic ambience, attentive and professional service whilst all the while remaining a great casual dining spot perfect for a quick lunch, a long relaxing dinner with friends and has always been a romantic date spot.

    Absolutely amazing. The restaurant, the staff, and the food were all just so great. That tiramisu was the best any of us had ever had and we’ve all been to Italy and had it there too. Glad we could walk home to our hotel to help us all digest it. Will definitely be back next time we’re in Melbourne!

    Very early dinner, as we were going to the theatre afterwards so it was a little rushed. BUT the entrees were absolutely delicious, as were the desserts. Mains were good too but entrees a desserts were the highlights. Service was very good. Lacked a little ambience due to it being so early. All in all, a very good experience.

    Dining out is much more expensive than it used to be so it’s even more important that restaurants deliver an exceptional experience. Trattoria Emilia got everything right, especially the low key but professional service and the overall ambiance.

    I took my Mother here for an end to her trip to Melbourne. I myself am somewhat new to the area and by fluke found Trattoria Emilia on Yelp, and what an incredibly happy accident that was! The staff were exceptional, always attentive, friendly and respectful. The food was unreal, everything was superb. And the value for money with the 3 course meal was just fantastic after everything was considered. I'll be back as soon as the kitchen is in the new year!
