Mezzalira is one of Canberra's best kept secrets, an intimate space, with an extraordinary wine list, including many locally produced wines.

The cuisine is best described as Modern Italian, based on the southern Italian 'Cucina Rustica', a culinary philosophy of marrying simple flavours with the best Australian produce available, which is what makes Mezzalira an outstanding dining experience.

Dine in the historic surrounds of the Melbourne Building in this converted 1921 bank.
