Como Restaurant

When Italian-inspired eatery Como opened in South Bank in the final weeks of 2023, it quickly joined the ranks of the most beautiful venues to open that year. The brainchild of Enzo Esposito, Gianni Greghini and Tony D’Alessandro, Como promises a high-end epicurean experience delivered with a party-centric conviviality. Head chef Isaia Dal Fiume (formerly chef de cuisine at Bacchus) has crafted a menu loaded with delectable eats – we’re talking pan brioche with raw kangaroo loin, marinated swordfish with yuzu, coconut and capers, pappardelle with wild boar ragu, Imperial Blossom wagyu scotch fillets with a marble score of 8–9, and a range of red- and white-base pizzas cooked in an impressive Marana Forni rotary oven. Como’s wine list features a deep selection of Australian and international wines, while a cocktail menu offers up a selection of signature aperitifs (including a dedicated spritz selection) and riffs on modern classics. Como Restaurant’s Melbourne Street home – a former sushi train that connects to Fish Lane – boasts a striking chic interior from CG Design Studio that is equal parts opulent and approachable.
