We visited Locanda on invite from Rydges Melbourne as a pre-show dinner before heading off to Circus 1903.
This is a good italian restaurant on Melbourne’s busy Exhibition Street, at the north of Chinatown.
We had a range of menu items to taste, including the beetroot cured Salmon with gold beetroot, fennel and burnt orange, and the Kingfish with tarragon infused kipler potatoes, sultana ragout and red wine jus.
They had a good selection of wines and my favourite dish was the eye fillet with cauliflower and roasted artichoke gratin, pistachio crumb, wilted spinach and peppercorn jus.
