About Mezzo Italian Restaurant, Melbourne CBD
Mezzo Italian Restaurant offers quality Italian cuisine in an unpretentious and comfortable dining room, centrally located in Melbourne’s CBD and theatre district.
When owner and manager Silvio Sgarioto took over the reins at Mezzo, the stars were aligned. Not only has his love of hospitality and extensive experience in the local industry led to him establishing Mezzo as one of the most top-rated Italian restaurants in the city, his heritage has given him the most perfectly named restaurant – “mezzo” translates to “half” and with his father hailing from Sicily, Silvio is half Italian!
Executive chef Marcello Mariani leads the kitchen team, creating a menu that tips its hat to the classic Italian dishes and then adds a modern flavour and twist. Born in the Veneto region of Italy, Marcello spent five years studying at Luigi Carnacina Scuola Alberghiera in Verona and continued on to work in some of the most outstanding restaurants around Europe and London. We are incredibly lucky to have an executive chef of such calibre at Mezzo.
The venue itself has a separate bar area that is the ideal location for after-work or pre-theatre drinks, with smaller menu items available to enjoy.
The dining room is spacious and elegant and yet offers a friendly and casual space not only for lunch or dinner, but also for a special occasion or corporate function. We can host a seated function for 80 to 100 guests or a cocktail function for up to 130 people.
