Just opposite Piedimonte’s Supermarket, Pinotta is in the thick of North Fitzroy and has been warmly embraced by the strong community. That's exactly what owner Heidi Modra aims for: a good local restaurant that becomes part of the landscape.
Pinotta’s blackboard menu changes a couple of times a week with daily specials, mainly repping Italy. That said, there are some French touches.
Modra, a former graphic designer, runs the floor. She's mad about wine, her list is made up of about 40 drops, each of which can be ordered by the glass.
The key here is the owners’ hands-on approach. It’s a well run, small local in an area that demands quality and it delivers.
Pinotta is now hiring. Find out more on Scout, Broadsheet's new employment website.
