Dear Fellow Food Lovers


Over the next few months, your food-friend La Pesa is taking a short break to refresh and rejuvenate. (last trading day as La Pesa is Saturday 8th October)

Don't worry too much, as we will be back better than ever, and in the meantime will be showcasing a new concept* for your taste-bud pleasure, that will naturally still include classical and modern Italian fare, long lunches, romantic rendezvous, and memorable private functions.

We will be back in a few months with a new menu, new ideas. If you haven't already, please stay in touch via our email updates. Feel free to tell us what culinary delights you would like kept and ones that you would like to see more of. 

Thank you for your patronage, your trust, loyalty, feedback & food-friendship.

Stay tuned, we will publish updates.


See you soon,


Frederic Lambert

La Pesa - Passionate About Great Food

 * Classico Moderno is a pop-up project by Italian chef Bryan Gerlini. 

The former head chef of Leichhardt Capriccio Osteria, with stints at 

Darlinghurst most famous popup, Cafe Paci, and local stalwart A Tavola, 

Bryan specialises in the cuisine of his native Emilia-Romagna. 

While the region is the birthplace of Prosciutto di Parma and 

Parmigiano-Regianno, and home to such staples as tagliatelle Bolognese 

and lasagne, Bryans take is distinctly modern. His signature 

cotechino and lentil sliders and cannoli di mortadella have already wowed 

Sydneys food critics and Classico Moderno will showcase even more 

inventive, delicious twists on the classics. Joining him in conjuring up 

creative desserts is Francesco Guerra, formerly of Gelato Messina. 

Classico Moderno will offer chef-curated degustation menus inspired 

by Emilia, the land and Romagna, the coast, as well as the chance to 

design your own degustation or three-course meal. And as Bryan believes wine 

is part of the recipe, each dish will have a unique, harmonious wine-match option.
