Terra Rosa never disappoints, offering authentic Italian dishes and vino from regional Italy. The staff are friendly, attentive and obviously enjoy their work. The restaurant is set in a gorgeous rustic building with a fireplace and bar that is truly inviting. The meals are very reasonably priced and there is a cab rank right outside. I will definitely return to... More

We googled the menu and couldn't resists. Terra Rossa didn't disappoint with delicious home made pasta and generous servings. The staff were fantastic and very attentive. Really great location with gorgeous ambiance for a good Italian meal. Would highly recommend!

We popped in for a light night drink, coffee and dessert. It had a nice atmosphere in front of the open fire. Coffee was excellent as was the chocolate mousse. Service was also very good!

I love this restaurant! I've been here a couple of times for lunch with colleagues, and this time I took my family of five (three generations) for dinner. We were greeted warmly and given drinks quickly while we perused the menu. We ordered two entrees and four mains to share as kids and my mother have smaller appetites, which was... More

Caramelised onion arancini and gnocchi are amazing. Excellent cocktails. Great service, quick food and wonderful atmosphere. Music is subtle and allows for conversation.

Stopped in here for an after show drink. It was a cold Melbourne night so to sit in the chesterfields by an open fire was just lovely. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and a lovely gin and tonic.

What a good find. Hidden on Flinders Lane. Dark moody red, opulent faded glamour. Bram Stoker's Dracula would love it. The calamari in chickpea flour was perfectly cooked. The fourteen hour slow cooked beef just fell apart, it was great. Though being a Northern European I missed vegetables. It came just with a jus and a smile. Would have liked... More

ou might have seen us down Flinders Lane, in the historic Swiss House building. It's the red brick building on the corner of Duckboard Place (ACDC Lane). You can walk or tram to a number of theatres, concert and sporting venues from our front door, which means we're actually the perfect stop for drinks and a bite to eat before or after the show/concert/match. Plus, we take bookings which can be hard to find in our neck of the woods. This is our story... Pizza, pasta and mozzarella are our thing. We love having guests over to visit. You can come in off the street or give us a shout beforehand to book a spot. We're very accommodating, and not to blow our own horn, have a certain something something. Oh, and we have one of the most handsome Italian's in Melbourne as our pizza chef. Fact.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
