    It was a very pleasant venue with most enjoyable authentic Italian food, a great selection of dishes and personal friendly service by the owners themselves. A great backdrop for catching up with friends.

About the restaurant

Eat, Love, Stay

Il Sogno Surrey Hills is about family in more ways than one. Firstly, it’s run by two brothers John and Anthony Giarratana, and secondly, their relaxing environment is just the right place to take your family for a treat. The Giarratana brothers have inherited their love of the social side of food from their Italian heritage, because in Italy, eating is an experience to be shared with those you love. And when it comes to making fresh and wholesome food, these guys mean business. Head Chef Anthony has spent years as a professional chef, and even trained with one of our much-loved celebrity chefs Guy Grossi. His concise menu features only the best that Il Sogno has to offer, and it’s ever-changing to suit the seasons. It’s an Italian restaurant, but the food here also boasts modern Australian freshness and style, giving it a unique quality. Come for their delicious Italian fare, and stay for the ambiance and the company of friends. Il Sogno makes sharing food with loved ones a real treat.
