Cuisine: Italian, Pizza
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $25

The newest arrival on the stylish block that is Mantra South Bank is Salt Meats Cheese where you can find modern Italian food made with authentic, fresh ingredients and a side order of European flare.

You've never seen a dining area so stylish. Fuse that unmistakable Scandinavian minimalism with mint-green furnishings and countless potted plants and you're in the right ball part. Clean, slick and modern, this is where you take someone you want to impress!

Get your day off to a sophisticated start with their a la carte breakfast menu. The SMC breakfast, consisting of grilled asparagus, eggs, sourdough and truffle pecorino, awards brekkie the importance it deserves. If you live the simple life, go for the classic avocado toast, an omelette your way or the crunchy granola.

On the dinner menu is a range of expertly prepared Italian dishes. Forget pasta with tomato sauce; lose yourself in the crab tagliolini, lamb pappardelle or pumpkin risotto. Fresh out of the pizza oven are a number of popular favourites like tartufo, capricciosa and gamberi that can be made vegan-friendly with some dairy-free mozzarella. Too easy!

We had a lovely experience. The staff were friendly and attentive, even when the restaurant got busy. We took three entrees, which were perfectly balanced, then had 3 pizzas which were perfectly cooked and flavoured. We were happy that the pizzas came out staggered as we were sharing between 4 and it was nice to have a hot one arrive when we'd almost finished the first two. Great lunch, thanks!!

Fantastic food, friendly service at Salt Meats Cheese. My party of four went there before a show at QPAC and it was perfect. The service was efficient considering they were very busy and everyone loved their food choices. The Salmon dish was a winner!

Friendly and efficient service and, with gluten-free diners in our group, good food. We started with fries & aioli and fries with a divine truffle aioli - I could have eaten just the truffle aioli and been perfectly happy. Two of three pasta dishes were great with the third having the crab over-powered by chili. The margarita pizza was fabulous. We left full and happy.

Dined here with my wife and a friend on the weekend. Excellent customer service, we were seated quickly and drinks and meal order attended to straight away. Only a short wait for food to come out. Great portions and each person at our table was extremely satisfied with their order. We had a handmade crab tagliolini, pappardelle slow cooked lamb ragu, and a buffalo pizza. Menu is reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere in the busy South Bank precinct. Highly recommend a visit here.

Fabulous pizza and pasta. I had the gnocchi and it definitely did not disappoint. We had a lovely hostess who was very knowledgeable.

Attentive service, timely and fresh food. Great variety to choose from. Spacious location and easy to find. Thank you for a great experience!

Pastas were lovely (especially the crab). In hindsight I would have given the antipasto platter a miss - I didn’t feel it was value for money. We pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves and the waiter was attentive.

I dined with two friends and we were all very impressed with the service. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed great wine wine and shared a few tasty entrees before our mains. I’ll be back to try more on the menu!

Salt Meats Cheese at Southbank offered indoor and outdoor seating
We sat in a booth at the doors so we could watch people pass by. The staff were friendly and the service attentive. They would probably benefit from training in the menu and product knowledge to give better recommendations and provide more information on what was on offer.
We fell for the rooky mistake of not asking for tap water. The waitperson offered sparkling or still water ; I chose still water and ended up with Evian at $7 for the bottle. I would have preferred that she told us that the bottle would be charged before she opened and poured it.
We finally established it was happy hour and ordeed our drinks. I ordered a cocktail but was dismayed to find the contents of the glass were mostly ice and not very much cocktail!
The menu is quite limited and is definitely Italian. I didn't really see the salt meats cheese theme reflected in the menu choices. I assumed there would be a good selection of cured meats, salami, antipasto, cheeses but there were few of these options. My mistaken assumption.
We opted for a mushroom and truffle pizza and a crab linguine dish.
The pizza was tasty as was the pasta, although there was too much chilli for our taste. We did not have coffee or desert opting for the gelato shop across the road. The restaurant is cafe style casual dining, good for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Enjoyed our outdoor table for the cooling breeze it offered on a hot night. The staff were very attentive and helpful in providing a drink that was not on the menu. We both chose fish - it was perfectly cooked with tasty accompanying veggies.

In all a great choice to celebrate a birthday!

First time using First Table and we enjoyed dining at Salt Meats Cheese pre going to QPAC for a performance. Food was excellent - enjoyed the arancini, blue spanner crab pasta and pizza base was really nice (and not too filling!). Service was great but after initial greeting we were left for over 10 minutes without menu's or any service but once we had asked for some assistance all was good.
