With the Piazza and the Church, the Osteria was for many years an integral part of a town's life. In the Italian culture it was the traditional meeting place of people, especially of men who gathered around the table for a game of cards. The fortunes and misfortunes of paesani who had migrated to distant lands like America and Australia were told over a glass of good honest wine. In the 1970s, with the economic recovery of Italy, the Osteria was replaced by the Bar. However, in recent times the Osteria has experienced a revival. It has become the place where people go to eat genuine country food accompanied by a glass of wine … or two!
The concept of eating good food in a simple, rustic ambience has also become popular in Australia, supported by the availability of excellent locally sourced garden produce, meats and fish.
In a warm and friendly ambience Carmine Costantini, Head Chef and owner of Osteria la Passione wants to share with its patrons a unique Italian traditional culinary experience with a touch of modern cuisine.
Weddings and special dinners and functions in venues of your choice can be catered. We have 2 small function rooms available for your event.
The dishes at Osteria la Passione reflect the Italian regional and adoptive cuisine of Costantini with a touch of modernity. Most meals include a rich variety of Italian traditional vegetables, herbs, eggs, poultry, honey and fruits which are sourced from local, organic growers. Freshness and quality is paramount. These ingredients are transformed by Carmine’s cooking skills and passion into succulent and unique dishes served at his restaurant
