Great food, simple and fresh flavours, with attentive and friendly staff. Big windows give it an alfresco feel despite being nicely perched on the first floor.

Great food and good service. One small negative is that for some very strange reason they don't have a proper espresso machine and only make stovetop coffee which I stopped doing 25 years ago...and I'm Italian.

Food was great and very close to food in Italy! Service was perfect. Winelist was good with a nice Italian selection that can be improved. Definitely worth a visit

About Rosa's Canteen

The Queen of Sicily reigns again It is our opinion that you can never have too much of a good thing. That’s why we’re super happy that Rosa Mitchell, co-owner of Sicilian restaurant Rosa’s Kitchen, has opened up another restaurant in Melbourne’s CBD. Rosa has designed a menu that features not only her signature Sicilian favourites, but dishes from all around the boot-shaped nation. Expect much loved classics like veal saltimbocca, spaghetti carbonara and sumptuous arancini balls. You can also choose a yummy banquet option if you’re coming with a large group - this could include a baby suckling pig or a whole leg of goat! You can’t go wrong at this hearty, homely Italian joint. Best Dish: Fettucine zucchini prawns
