Sunday: the day of rest, right?
Long mornings, lazy afternoons, and food. Lots and lots of food. For what is Sunday without a feast? And what’s better than a genuine Italian spread; complete with home-style cooking and friendly faces. Food that just oozes love and soul and laughter (not literally, don’t worry).
You’ll find Mio Locale — Italian for ‘My Local’ — on Brunswick St. in Fitzroy’s North, and if you’re looking for that true, family-style Sunday; this is where you’ll find it. At $45 per head, Mio Locale’s long-awaited Sunday Feasts are a four-course set, themed lunch, held on the last Sunday of every month.
The menu features dishes passed on by the owners’ (siblings Emily and Maurice Paladino) nonna, such as house-made salamis, pastas, fresh salads and slow cooked meats. Good, humble but hearty dishes that will leave your face smiling and your belt loosened a few notches.
The Sunday feasts run on the last Sunday of every month, 1pm–3pm. Book your spot and keep up to date via their Facebook page, website, and Instagram page.
