Bolzano opened in 2009 by Hamish Hames to introduce a gutsy and distinctive brand of Italian cuisine to the Bellarine Peninsula. Bolzano's cuisine is based on authentic Italian enhanced by using the best and freshest local ingredients, surprising elements, and wherever possible our own organic and heirloom produce grown locally.
The full menu changes weekly and includes hand-rolled pasta and home-made desserts, delicious chargrilled prime cuts, chops and seafood. Take-away offerings are numerous with thin based, artisan pizzas and our extensive pasta menu. Please ask staff if you have any special dietary or other requirements.
The wine list is to the point, the point being no wasted space in our cellar, and an emphasis on quality and craftsmanship. It is extremely well balanced, full of great boutique, imported and small release offerings.
