A visit to Mildura would be incomplete without a visit to the iconic Stefano’s Restaurant. A true stalwart of Mildura's dining scene, the restaurant (which bears the gastronomic star, Stefano de Pieri's name) is a restaurant with a proud reputation forged over many years. Consistently enjoying massive success, Stefano’s Restaurant is widely regarded as one of the finest Italian restaurants in the country. It is an “institution” in every sense of the word and a true colossus of the region's dining scene.
We make our way to the private dining room which makes you feel immediately welcome and this is reinforced by the warm, knowledgeable and attentive service.
We were privileged to have Stefano himself join us for dinner and take us through the courses and the matching wines.
The culinary journey at Stefano's pleased at every turn with flavour-laden dishes. Think earthy mushroom and homemade sausage wrapped around ribbons of silky pasta, decadent cheese soufflé and a pannacotta made using an age old recipe (without gelatine). It’s all superb.
It is clear why Stefano’s has been so successful for so many years. With wonderfully executed, hearty Italian cuisine in a warm and welcoming environment this restaurant keeps you wanting more.
