Cala Luna in Sydney’s Mosman has reopened with a new look and a new menu after closing for renovations following a devastating fire in February this year.

The fire at Middle Harbour Yacht Club on Lower Parriwi Rd caused approximately $500,000 worth of damage and forced the restaurant and wedding location to close its doors for more than nine months.

The restaurant has now reopened, boasting a new cocktail and antipasto bar and a more relaxed dining atmosphere, allowing guests to enjoy Italian style tapas including freshly sliced prosciutto and jamon, house pickles and local seafood.

“The new la carte menu focuses on a small selection of signature dishes which will be supplemented by combinations of what’s in season and exceptional produce we find at the markets each day,” said owner and executive chef Michel Rossetti.

Signature dishes include the sardine sandwich with tomato, lemon pangrattato and marjoram; whole snapper with moscato d’Asti, olives and fresh parsley; and filleto di manzo – seared eye fillet, duck fat chips and truffle.

The venue now seats 175 guests in the open dining room, where it can cater to larger weddings and functions, as well as smaller events in the 45 seat private dining room.

In addition to the Mosman site, the Rossetti portfolio consists of Cala Luna’s sister venue in North Sydney, Pizza Pasta Bene (one in Mosman, North Sydney and Cremorne) and a new food concept launching in Double Bay in February. The family also owns a farm in Bowral which supplies its restaurants with fresh produce.
