About Oster

Inspired by Northern Italian roots, Oster on Bridge Road brings casual, regional osteria-style dining to Richmond. Unfussy local food and wine hosted in a warm neighbourhood eatery awaits, in rustic surrounds of softly glowing pendents, a marble bar and exposed brick walls; or take a seat at bifold windows opening streetside and people-watch in this trendy Melbourne suburb. The Chef’s tasting menu delivers traditional concepts stepped in slightly radical ideologies, taking diners a little out of their comfort zone, with offerings of Stracciatella, fermented tomatoes, charred leek and organic lemons. House pasta specialty Casonsei alla Bresciana, Heidi Tilsit, brown butter and sage is a must-try, along with housemade sourdough and desserts of dark chocolate tart and raspberry sorbet.

Best Fusion Italian restaurant in Melbourne
Lovely Italian Fusion Restaurant, amazing selection of Australian Wines made with Italian grapes. Really good lunch deals & stunning chef blind tasting menu for Dinner. The owners Osvaldo & Nicola are professional and fully experienced. It's a cozy restaurant, remember to book your table (there is also an 8 to 10 sit chef's table!) or your place at the "Japanese whisky bar" style counter! Completely suggested ????
