Pranzo con la Famiglia

Sit down to a long Italian outdoor lunch with local heroes.

Sunday lunch, Italian-style! Italian or not, you’re invited to celebrate the Italian Sunday lunch, delivered with style in Victoria Harbour.

Join Melbourne’s most revered Italo purveyors of food, wine, design and culture including Tony Nicolini, founder of Carlton Espresso, DOC and iTALiAN ARTiSANS (he knows contemporary Italian); Enoteca’s John Portelli, master curator of the Italian pantry; Pidapipo’s Lisa Valmorbida, putting the sexiness into gelato; founder of TAP Wines Andrew De Angelis, a pioneer of sustainable quality wine on tap; and Signor Mont, famous wedding stylist and designer.

Hosted by the talented Saluministi Boys, Frank Bressi and Peter Mastro, modernist kings of ‘new-school porchetta and panini’, these Italo-Australian rockstars will show you how to put on a party. Expect a family feast of Italian proportions, complete with live music and the hospitality of the mother country.

Everyone is welcome from your nonna to the kids, and even the mother in-law.

The menu includes:
- Salumi, formaggio and focaccia by Italian Artisans
- Risotto al balsamico by Enoteca Sileno
- Porchetta, sautéed greens and insalata by Saluministi
- Dessert by Pidapipo
- Caffettiera (Italian stovetop) coffee by Lavazza
- Wines by TAP, serving Italy’s finest sangiovese, pinot grigio and Spritz on tap
- New Essenza flavoured sparkling mineral water by Sanpellegrino
- Styling and design by Signor Mont
- Live music by Siesta Cartel

Proudly supported by Lendlease & Victoria Harbour.
