Selected by INSIDER

A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

INSIDER by TheFork is a carefully curated selection of top tier venues, the ones with hats, the ones that make the top dining guides, and most importantly the ones we know you love!

INSIDER tip

Alessio Di Bari is from Puglia in Southern Italy. The 'Cucina Italiana' has taken Alessio worldwide from Italy to London the Middle East and now firmly footed in Melbourne. Like Puglian cuisine Aleesio likes to keep things simple and not overdone but respecting the produce and the seasons. Commencing with Sosta in February 2019 we are extremely thrilled with Alessio's food to date and we are extremely excited with what is coming next.

    Given the challenges of a snap lockdown staff were accommodating, helpful and took great care of us. The food was delicious and the wine recommendation perfect.

    Great food, great service & great vibes. I really enjoyed the fact that I could bring my own wine and enjoy it whilst someone else cooked the meal. I will be back...

    If we can’t go to Italy (thanks COVID-19), this at least feels like an authentic little slice right here - cosy, ambient & attentive staff. Lovely way to spend an evening ????

    Sosta Cucina always delivers an excellent dining experience. The food is perfect, service solicitous and helpful without being over the top. I only wish I was able to stay longer.

    Loved everything about this place! Food, service, space. Had a very lovely dining experience. Our waiter was also the best! The crumbed pork was divine. As was the crab linguine.
