Melbourne, your Italian adventure awaits!
27 May 2018
Just as the appeal of Italian food runs from street-style pizza-fun for the whole family to fresh-pasta finery for the connoisseur, the festival has food and drink, entertainment and information to suit everyone from spaghetti-loving kids to the most engaged Italian-speaking wine lover.
Journey through Italy with over 200 wines to taste, meet winemakers and importers, or attend an Italian wine masterclass curated by our team. Feast on pizza, pasta and Italian snacks in our pop-up restaurants, while Melbourne's top Italian chefs share their joy for cooking on the main stage.
Taste your way through the Italian Market, brimming with salumi, cheese, pasta, coffee, olive oil, bread, fruit and veg, pastries, gelato and more!
Sip on an authentic Italian cocktail from the Negroni Bar and relax in one of the festival wine gardens.
The festival is all about celebrating wine, food and culture together in inimitable Italian style. #italiansdoitbetter
