Italian in Central Hobart & the Waterfront

This stylish Italian restaurant on the business flanks of Macquarie St somehow manages to feel intimate despite the traffic thundering past (jazz, bentwood chairs and moody lighting all help). Risottos and handmade pastas are the standouts – order the fresh spaghetti with sea urchin and a bottle of peppy Sicilian red. Sunday lunch is a set-menu affair ($75 per person).
