Locanda Private Dining celebrates authentic Italian dishes. With an uncompromised focus on the best Australian and imported produce, Locanda’s passion lies within honouring single ingredients in their abundance and a menu of reimagined classics.

Nestled in the heart of Melbourne’s iconic East End Theatre district, Locanda Restaurant and Public Bar offers relaxed dining in a sophisticated Italian setting. Fitted with high ceilings, Italian marble, natural timber & plush velvets, the furniture's contemporary design elements instantly sets a luxurious and exciting tone, with two well-appointed Private Dining Rooms  at the back of the restaurant.

The Locanda Deli and Wine Cellar tucked away in Little Bourke Street is instantly recognisable by its large Italian marble share table and overhanging glass chandelier. The space comfortably seats 14 guests but is also suitable for a group of up to 30 guests, cocktail style.

For larger parties the Locanda Private Dining Room is ideal. This room is sectioned off from the main restaurant by our outstanding floor-to-ceiling glass wine cellars. The space holds up to 60 people for sit down dinners and up to 80 for a stand up cocktail event.

And for those who are after a little more room, the Private Dining Room & Deli can be combined.

The team at Locanda is led by Executive Chef Paul Griffiths who brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and acts as the backbone to the Locanda team, with a simple mission to create memorable occasions
