We're always buzzing with something going on.  Pop in on an intimate date, or get loose with a bunch of your nearest and dearest.  There are DJs on the decks Friday and Saturday nights to get you swooning and grooving.

Our calendar is also packed with functions and special events, so get involved and discover why we're not just any old bar.  

We bring the nostalgia and hospitality of Italia to you.

Aperitivo Sundays

Our Aperitivo Sundays have fast become the best and most traditional Aperitivo in Melbourne, on the 1st Sunday of each month. Mark it in your calendar, it’s the perfect place to say hello to the Joanie’s family.

From 1.30pm for $20, have a drink and sample the delights of a true Italian aperitivo - cheese, salami, pasta and more - Buonissimo!

No bookings required. Come and enjoy the good life with food, wine and the best Italian music. What’s Sunday for if not a celebration, Italian style!

ARrosticini bbq

Ever sunk your teeth into one of these Arrosticini? They may be small but don't let their size fool you. They're full of flavour and once you start you won't be able to stop!

For one day only we're teaming up with Fat Sheep to bring you these juicy lamb skewers, cooked the traditional Abruzzese way - over hot coals. 

So grab your amici and join the party from 1pm on Sunday 15 April. We'll have a live DJ and drink specials to get your Sunday sesh started!
