Summer has officially landed on the banks of the Yarra River as PIMM’S takes over the Fatto Terrace on Melbourne’s Southbank.

Fatto Bar & Cantina offers contemporary takes on traditional Italian cuisine in a relaxed, riverside setting adjoining Melbourne’s vibrant arts precinct, with breathtaking views across the Yarra to the ever-changing city skyline. Serving ‘Italian by Hand’ from Head Chef James Kummrow, Fatto’s menu is seasonally-driven, and uses only the highest quality produce with fresh pasta made daily.

Whether pulling up a chair on the sunny, verdant terrace, settling in for a leisurely evening in the cantina or having a quick pre-theatre bite in the bar, Fatto’s menu of signature Italian dishes and cocktails has something for “tutti”.

With sweeping views across the city’s famed skyline, guests are invited to soak up the warmer weather on riverside deck chairs with a PIMM’S in hand and a curated Fatto apperitivo selection to match.
