Whisking you away to the dreamy coastline of the Italian Riviera, La Costa is Brisbane's answer to a Mediterranean vacation in the middle of the city. Beaming with amore, luscious food and great company, this eatery encapsulates the whimsical quality of this magical part of the world.
Inspired first and foremost by lazy summers in Northwest Italy, La Costa pays homage to the ocean using a refreshing white and green colour palette, European oak tabletops and rustic handmade crafts. Dispersed with handwoven baskets, summery paintings and free-spirited light fixtures, this eatery simply breathes optimism and the easy going pace of coastal life.
As you can imagine, 'rushing' is not in La Costa's vocabulary. Diners are encouraged to disconnect with everyday life, firstly by ordering their first Aperol Spritz and then taking it slow with some arancini balls, crispy bruschetta or burrata before mains arrive. You'll want to preserve your appetite for the freshly made pastas, lovingly anointed with anything from carbonara to brisket ragu and black truffle cream. Then, in come the pizzas crowned with our favourite traditional toppings. Aromatic, fresh and plenty cheesy, this is how they savour life on the Riviera.
Finally, no Italian meal is complete without the creamy coffee dessert they hold dear. We're talking about Tiramisu, of course, and remember, La Costa can always recommend a stunning dessert wine to go alongside. It is the Riviera way...
