Offering warm hospitality, authentic grub and stylish surrounds, Oster is up there as one of the best Italian restaurants in Melbourne.

Modelled after the casual eateries you can find in the food-loving European country, the Richmond hotspot boasts a shabby-chic vibe, with exposed brickwork and low-hanging lights, alongside unfussy tables and chairs. It’s atmospheric yet sleek and stylish, creating the perfect ambience for intimate date nights and catch-up meals.

The menu showcases the owner's Italian heritage, featuring seasonal bites such as Tuscan white ragu and casonei alla bresciana, as well as a selection of high-quality meats and cheeses. If you fancy adding that extra special touch to your meal out, you can also go for the exciting five-course offering as chosen by the chef. And it goes without saying that the wine list is extensive, with a focus on local, Australian bottles. More of a cocktail person? They've got you covered, with a short but sweet selection of classics.
