Rosetta is a part of the Rockpool Group of restaurants, which is bound by a commitment to the finest sustainable produce, world-class service, a progressive approach to food and creating memorable experiences for guests.“We are proud and honoured to be Australia’s most awarded restaurant group with 15 Good Food Guide Chefs’ Hats across seven restaurants, and all named in Gourmet Traveller’s Top 50 Restaurant list.” Neil Perry AM.Rosetta is one of Australia’s best and most sophisticated Italian restaurants, located next to Rockpool Bar & Grill, on Crown Melbourne’s popular riverside promenade.
Neil Perry is the creative force behind Rosetta, which combines an impressive Iain Halliday-designed dining room with professional and authentic service, and a seasonally driven menu of Neil’s favourite regional recipes from his extensive travels through Italy.At the heart of Rosetta’s fast-paced kitchen is a wood fired oven and char-grill for creating simple Italian dishes such as suckling pig, roast chicken and wood fired suckling lamb. Pasta is also a major feature of the menu with two dedicated chefs hand-making over 16 different kinds, from maccaronara and cavatelli to the more traditional fettuccine and gnocchi.
With an extraordinary vista of Melbourne’s skyline, Rosetta seats 120 guests in the restaurant and 80 on the heated alfresco terrace overlooking the promenade and Yarra River.The elegant Rosetta Room, with its modern Warhol-inspired mural of Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, is one of the city’s most exclusive locations for private dining occasions.
