The Venue

Your local Italian that’s all about sharing good food, a few laughs and a drink or two with family and friends. Headed up by Mike Eggert and Matt Germanchis, Totti’s Lorne menu is made for sharing.


Start with wood-fired bread made to order with small plates of local and house-made antipasto. Move on to flavour-packed pasta, and then perhaps the chicken or fish, perfectly cooked in the Josper charcoal oven.
