A new dining experience for Southbank

The new Piatto restaurant and bar at Bella Apartments has helped further enliven the City Rd West precinct and provide locals and visitors with a fresh and comfortable dining option.

With the serviced apartment tower, managed by Experience Hotel Apartments, completed last year, it’s the start of an exciting transformation of what has long been an inactive section along City Rd.

Having only recently opened in late February, Piatto is now offering local residents, local workers and hotel guests, with a relaxed venue to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the week.

The new business has been met with a constant flurry of customers since day one and Piatto assistant manager Claire Rousserie said it illustrated that the venue was something the area had been in need of for a long time.

“It’s great for local residents as the dining choices to date have been very limited in this vicinity,” she said.

Piatto (Italian for ‘plate’) offers a modern-Australian menu with an Italian twist, a fully licensed bar and daily breakfast, lunch and dinner.

While it will launch its dinner and bar menu later this month, Claire said the feedback to its culinary offerings to date had been very positive.

“We’ve just started breakfast and lunch and the feedback has been overwhelming,” she said.

“It’s especially good for residents of nearby new developments that are already coming here because that’s what they’ve been waiting for. Plans are well underway for delivery to local residents doors also.”

Piatto’s executive chef, Pablo, has worked all over Europe and South America and has created a menu that will surprise and delight every guest.

Claire said Pablo, now a Southbank resident himself, was looking forward to seeing many satisfied patrons come through the doors.

“The attendants are from different countries too, representing Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and of course Australia to name a few so it’s certainly a diverse team. We all chip in so it’s a bit of a family atmosphere,” she said.

“We go out of our way to look after local businesses by providing a comfortable space to meet clients, get the staff together, or to simply work out of the office with phone and laptop charging stations throughout the restaurant. We can also organise delivery of lunch if you have a meeting in the office.”

Hotel guests throughout winter can enjoy breakfast for only $1, so keep Experience Bella Hotel Apartments top of mind if you have family or clients visiting. To book them in, simply visit www.experiencehotels.com.au or call on 9667 0466.

Piatto is located at the ground floor of Bella at 250 City Rd, Southbank.
