About the restaurant
D.O.C is real Italian eating and age old simplicity refreshed with contemporary flair. A celebration of heritage. A joy in sharing. Authentic, exuberant, and outrageously Italian.

Such an intimate restaurant, with lovely staff and delicious food! We had the meatballs and boscaiola pizza and it was the tastiest meal. Definitely recommend.

About the restaurant
Welcome to your home away from home. The locals' lounge room.
Where new and old friends from around the globe gather for organic charcuterie, house-made pasta + European and Australian wine.

Owner Stu and his team enjoy meats of Europe, the pastas of Italy, and wines from off the beaten track. The restaurant comes together over a love of pork and swill (and country music).

The kitchen team spends afternoons pickling, rolling gnocchi, making focaccia and keeping an eye on our beloved cured meats and pecorino cheese wheels. By nightfall the show is on, the house is full and the atmosphere is swinging.

So come on in and let us guide you through our menu. Welcome to our Diner!!

We went out for my brother in law's birthday we were so happy with the food. Food was flowing, service was very efficient. There wasn't a moment where the table was cluttered. Drinks were constantly topped up so no empty glasses.

At its traditional best. Risotto was perfect; and the “special” Spatchcock dish was outstanding.
