Philosophy

Canberra’s Italian trattoria Italian & Sons has been the talk of the town since opening its doors in 2009. As the very first premium restaurant in bustling Lonsdale Street, Italian & Sons almost single-handedly began the transformation of the Braddon precinct.
A firm favourite with locals, interstate visitors, political heavy hitters and captains of industry, Italian & Sons has both charmed and impressed diners with its inimitable offering of contemporary interpretations of essential Italian favourites in an authentic setting that would make even a restaurateur in Rome envious.
From the Trimboli family, the owners of Mezzalira Ristorante, Da Rosario and Bacaro, Italian & Sons is much-loved culinary institution thanks to its unwavering commitment to honest food, high quality seasonal ingredients and thoroughly hospitable service. 
Since winning a one-hat rating in the SMH Good Food Guide in its very first year of operation, to maintaining a prestigious two-glass rating in the Gourmet Traveller Wine Australian wine list of the year awards, the critical acclaim speaks volumes.
