Meet the Chef

Greg Feck, a true Kiwi, but also now a dedicated Melburnian, has been cooking professionally for over 25 years. Greg spent several years in London. During this time he made countless trips to Venice, falling in love with the culture, the beauty and of course the food of the city. Vaporetto has given Greg the perfect opportunity to showcase his talent and vast experience in Italian cooking, whilst indulging his love affair with Venice. This focus and tireless work with his loyal kitchen crew has established ‘Vaporetto' as the go-to place for beautiful Italian food in the Hawthorn area.

    Lovely food. Looking forward to the Covid-19 restrictions being lifted as the outdoor area does not have the same feel as inside...

About the restaurant

Get into the Venetian spirit with Vaporetto where you can get rose and pinot grigio on tap (yes, really!) before settling in for a full Italian feast. The brainchild of three food lovers who dreamed of a place that combined beautiful hearty fare with old school hospitality, Vaporetto is gilded with dark timbers, opulent chandeliers, brass and marble to bring a little slice of Venice to Hawthorn.

Best dish: Gnocchi, lamb shoulder ragu ‘sacchetti Veneti', leeks & cloves & truffled Pecorino
