On Friday 15th October, Aria Bar e Ristorante will open its doors with a new owner, new management, new staff and a new kitchen team. This opportunity has been made available through renowned restaurateur Nicholas Maio’s decision to sell the business.

Brigitta Tripodi, a bubbly young hospitality manager come restaurateur is about to take on her first establishment. Leading the team she has Dion Fiddler, a seasoned manager with many venues and vast experience under his belt. Jacob Easter is commanding the kitchen, with Leigh Stockwell as his Sous Chef, both Chefs have many years of experience behind
them. Jacob got his first taste of Italian cuisine many years ago, working at Red Ochre/Café Lago, and both worked the busy breakfast shifts at Citrus.

The location is devine, overlooking the lush landscape of the world famous city green belt (parklands). Very few changes have had to occur to make this space a truly magnificent dining location.

Aria, (Italian for Air) is an Italian restaurant, but with a distinctive Australian edge. We have
created food and wine menus that showcase the best local produce, while developing on the
Italian theme that Aria has already become well known for. All aspects of our business philosophy reflect this.

A la Carte is modern Italian cuisine; it is a journey through Italy and its famous sub-regions. The Chefs have created a delightful array of choice and even thrown in an Italian (4-region,
6-course) degustation.

Breakfast is a casual and tasty affair with free-range eggs, locally supplied produce, from the finest South Australian producers. We are spoilt for choice, with egg white omelet, K.I. muesli or buttermilk pancakes to name a few.

The wine list best shows the extent to which we are sourcing local artisan wine producing talent. Introducing our ‘fusion’ concept for 2010 we will be showcasing Italian grape varieties and wine styles native to Italy, which are produced here in Australia. The other areas of the list will focus on Australian wine styles and wines from Italy.

All menu’s are available via our website or you can contact us directly on 08 8272 8221. We also have a facebook page where we share a lot of happenings and changes with our fans.
