Fatto Bar and Cantina is a relaxed Italian bar and eatery in a bright, minimalist space drenched in natural light. Fatto looks over the Yarra River with arguably the most unique and breath-taking view of the Melbourne city skyline.

Led by Venue Manager & Head Chef James Kummrow, Fatto serves contemporary takes on classic Italian food. Fatto takes pride in Italian by hand with pasta made fresh daily in venue and a menu driven by the best seasonal produce. James draws on his experience working at venues such as The Royal Mail Hotel, Fenix, Journal Canteen (led by Rosa Mitchell), Church St Enoteca and two-Michelin starred The Square, London and The Vineyard, England - also with two-Michelin stars.

Fatto offers two distinct spaces. The Cantina provides table service and a range of signature Italian dishes including pasta, steak, salad and dessert. The Bar and Bar Terrace offer a substantial drinks list featuring classic Italian cocktails as well as snacks, antipasto and specials like the $10 formaggi burger and $10 pizzas. The outdoor heated terrace runs the length of the building, providing al fresco dining under the vines on the doorstep of the Arts Precinct.

Fatto is open daily from 12pm until late. The Cantina welcomes reservations and walk ins. ‘Aperitivo Hour’ runs every day in the Bar from 4-6pm offering $9 classic Italian cocktails, $7 wine and $5 beer – no need to book, just grab a seat and order at the Bar.

Fatto loves celebrations – with group and exclusive packages available.
