Rosetta is one of Australia’s most elegant and sophisticated Italian restaurants, which combines an impressive Iain Halliday-designed dining room with professional and authentic service, and a seasonally driven menu of Neil Perry’s favourite regional recipes from his extensive travels through Italy.

With an extraordinary vista of Melbourne’s skyline, Rosetta seats 120 guests in the restaurant and 80 on the heated alfresco terrace overlooking the promenade and Yarra River. The elegant Rosetta Room, with its modern Warhol-inspired mural of Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, is one of the city’s most exclusive locations for private dining occasions.


La dolce vita

Enjoy the finer things in life with a selected two course lunch at Rosetta including a glass of  wine and coffee, followed by a one hour relaxation massage at Crown Spa Melbourne. Take the stress out of driving with four hours valet parking at Crown Metropol.

$200 per person.
Available Tuesday – Thursday, 2 – 25 May.
Call Crown Spa on +61 3 9292 8327 to book.


At the heart of Rosetta’s fast-paced kitchen is a wood fired oven and chargrill for creating simple Italian dishes. Of course, the finest pasta also features prominently on the menu, house-made daily by our resident sfoglina.

Our wine list is composed of many of the classic wines born of belonging on a dining table laden with the region’s dishes.
