Secolo Dining is the kind of place you want to go with your friend who’s also obsessed with Instagram. Wait, you know what, this is the kind of place that a sun-tanned Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow would have frequented circa The Talented Mr. Ripley’s era. If you want that kind of high-power couple vibes right in the city, head here after work. Nay, stomp here after work in your power heels.

This CBD gem boasts boutique roasted coffee, Italian influenced breakfast, pastries, world-class antipasto, freshly made pasta, Napoli style pizza and vibrant aperitivo style wine and cocktails. And, don’t forget to try their Basil Cocktails – it was like summer in a glass. Seriously. Order one (or four) and never leave. They open till late.


On top of this, their dinner menu is to die for. We recommend starting with the beef carpaccio, reggiano, rocket and balsamic to share plate (don’t worry, you don’t need to share). Then find your way to the beautiful Spaghetti ala carasua and the Margherita Bufala pizza. Foodie heaven. Plus, don’t forget dessert feeds the soul, not your stomach – so don’t leave here without tasting their heavenly tiramisu.

Also, they cater to various dietary restrictions and offer vegetarian and vegan options on any trading day.

Whether you’re stopping by for a power brunch a la Carrie Bradshaw and the girls or a romantic dinner with your artistic bae, Secolo Dining is always a good idea. Make sure to check out their chic Melbourne Cup lunch details at
