The Verdict

Tipico is Windsor’s slick Italian eatery, but not your red-checked tablecloth variety. Think further north. Milan. Fashion week. Sleek black monochrome and designers whose legacy exceeds a few decades, (the design in here comes courtesy of Samantha Eades from Mitchell & Eades). There’s a Picasso-esque neon sculpture in the front window, courtesy of London-based artist Meg Abbott (she also supplied the original artwork for the walls). 

Helmed by the owner, Andrea Da Como, whose storied CV includes the likes of Melbourne restaurant institutions including DOC, The Lucas Group and McConnell Group, Tipico is his dream actualised, a design-forward neighbourhood Italian bar and eatery. 

You can start with a variety of classic antipasti: fried Buffalo mozzarella with charred tomatoes and basil pesto or the slow-cooked octopus with pickled chilli. Head chef Andrea Serreli is Sardinian-born and has graced the kitchens of Grossi Florentino, Trattoria Emilia and more. 

His tactful skill in hand-made pasta and sauce making is unparalleled with a selection of regional favourites on the go, including Pappardelle with braised-ox cheek ragu or the 'Girasoli' a charcoal pasta with Moreton Bay bug, seaweed butter, and spitfire chilli.
The flavours are classic, done simply, executed well. It’s the sort of menu that entices stealing forkfuls off each other's plates. Food envy lurks around every corner.

Date nights, special occasions, or just a mid-week pasta session—Tipico can handle them all.
