L’Unita may look like a cosy neighbourhood trattoria, but it’s actually a bona fide foodie destination. Since 2007, it has been luring diners with its seamless blend of tradition and contemporary trends. The warmly lit dining room exudes romantic charm while owner David Minicucci makes the rounds to ensure customers are satisfied. Chef Miriam Echeverria and her all-female kitchen turn out classic Italian dishes that include meatballs and polenta, local burrata and grilled branzino, every dish given a flavour boost with herbs and vegetables from the rooftop garden. The cannoli is arguably the best in town, and every Tuesday is half-price wine night with more than 300 selections to choose from. L’Unita may not be the most inventive kitchen in town, but its reliable, fresh Southern Italian cooking makes it an area mainstay.

L'Unità says
Counting on over seven years since opening their doors and serving the neighbourhood, L’Unità, still in its infancy continues to stay true to the dream that two young would-be restaurateurs had while serving tables together. A traditional Italian osteria & wine bar, where you can experience their handmade pastas, thin crust pizzas, grilled meats and fish and the best cannoli in town!

As much as L’Unità is small and intimate, with a rustic farmhouse feel, its classic design leaves you with a warm, evocative feel in a timeless setting.
A restaurant rich in conviviality, flavour and passion, this celebrated restaurant offers a pure translation of soulful dining—the Italian way.

Additionally, the menu changes seasonally, to go with our 500 bottle Italian and local wine list featuring labels from famed top producers, to rare undiscovered gems. With an ever growing selection of 30 wines poured by the glass, the experience at L’Unità can truly be viewed as ‘La Dolce Vita’.

Buon Appetito
