If you haven’t heard of Guy Grossi, he’s only one of Melbourne’s most iconic chefs, not to mention a well-known media personality who’s appeared on multiple cooking shows. And now, with four restaurants under his belt—Grossi Florentino, Ombra and Arlechin in Melbourne and Garum in Perth—Grossi has brought his particular brand of hospitality to Brisbane, opening Settimo in the CBD. 

Landing inside The Westin, Settimo is inspired by the Amalfi Coast, with interiors that will have you feeling like you’re on an Italian summer vacation. Taking design cues from the iconic cliffside towns, terracotta tiles, textured stone and contrasting timber furnishings  are interspersed with pops of pastel blue and lemon yellow throughout the whole venue, which covers multiple dining areas throughout the winding space and a private dining room.

On the menu you can expect to find a line-up of Grossi’s signature, coastal-inspired dishes that combine Italian flair and techniques with fresh local produce. The pizza fritte—deep-pizza dough wrapped around gooey provolone and spinach—is where you should start, alongside crisp crostini for dipping in fava bean dip. The next course (there will be many—this is an Italian restaurant after all), can include small plates like ricotta stuffed zucchini flowers and a salad of grilled octopus, potato and capers. 

Pasta is next, and the beef onion ragu is our pick, though the simple lemon butter spaghetti comes in a close second. For mains (because pasta is never a main in a traditional Italian meal), the slow-cooked Papa’s Lamb is a Grossi signature. Hopefully you’ve still got room for dessert after all that, because there’s no skipping out on the tiramisu for dessert. 

Being located inside The Westin, Settimo is also responsible for breakfast service, with a buffet breakfast that we hear features some seriously decadent Italian sweet treats—do with that information what you wish.
