Lagotto in Fitzroy North is a new collaboration between Millieu Hospitality Group, Flack Studio and chef David Fisher. Bridging the gap between cafe, restaurant and local deli, Lagotto offers different things to different people. The bold and unapologetic design is a visual feast which welcomes you in with characteristic Italian hospitality and European flair. Rich materials are used generously and with enthusiasm, with islands of polished natural stone sitting amongst the deep-red terrazzo floor. Gorgeous (and locally made!) burgundy stools by Grazia and Co. sit along the windows and beautiful marble counter. The interior takes cues from eclectic modernist Italian designer Gio Ponti, and incorporates striking colour and materials side by side. 

These distinctive design elements come together to produce a unique and welcoming environment that somehow feels like it’s been here and part of the community since the beginning.
