Bringing a Slice of Italy to Kingston
Salotto is a place where you can eat, drink and dance, Italian style! Our vision is to generate an ambient atmosphere reminiscent of the laidback bars and restaurants that speckle Rome’s famous piazzas. Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and embrace the tantalising taste of European heaven.
A restaurant steeped in history in the heart of modern-day Canberra
Soaked in sumptuous folds of traditional Italian culture and cuisine, Salotto is one of the few remaining family-owned restaurants and bars in Kingston, Canberra. Established in 1975 under the title ‘Santa Lucia’ by the Catanzariti family, this exquisite restaurant has been passed down three generations and is now run by the Pasquale Catanzariti. To this day it maintains strong elements of its beautiful history while simultaneously appealing to a contemporary audience.
The number one choice for Italian pizza restaurants and bars
When you think of Italy, you think of gondola rides, sprawling vineyards, and of course, pizza. That’s why we make it our mission to craft the best pizza in Kingston, Canberra. Using fresh ingredients and authentic Italian recipes, our chefs have curated an unforgettable fine dining experience. If you’re looking for something a bit more refreshing to the palate, our bar offers an excellent selection of Italian wines amongst a broad range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Why not take a look at our delectable menu (though we must warn you – salivation is guaranteed!)
