Di Stasio Citta
Due to open in June 2018.
Ronnie Di Stasio – the man behind St Kilda’s Café and Bar Di Stasio – is opening a new venue. It will be on Spring Street opposite Treasury Gardens, between Collins Street and Flinders Lane. The site will become Di Stasio Citta.
It will be, as Di Stasio puts it simply, “an Italian eating bar with classic cocktails.”
In early October 2017 Di Stasio was approached by Cbus, the super fund developers that recently added to its Spring Street portfolio. Things progressed quickly.
At such an early stage Di Stasio is sparing with details, but has engaged two Australian artists who both exhibited at the recent Venice Biennale to work on the project. Architects for the restaurant will be Hassell, the international design studio who’s Melbourne HQ is two blocks away on Little Collins Street.
