Description: Though it may sound like the Melbourne consulate for Italy’s much-loved bitter red aperitif, Campari House is actually the latest incarnation of an old-school Italian bistro that opened its Hardware Lane doors in 1968. The once-famous Campari Bistro has been brilliantly rejuvenated into a fantastic five level hospitality experience reflecting Melbourne’s diverse restaurant and bar culture. Consisting of a ground floor restaurant, level 1 guest room, level 2 Lounge, a fully covered Rooftop Bar and secondary Rooftop The Soda Bar. Seamlessly merging refined and rustic, vintage and contemporary, Campari House has the feel of an instant classic. Stylish without being sleek, the venue is warm and inviting, comfortable yet lively. The ground floor 45 seater Restaurant offers a fresh and innovative modern Italian menu open for lunch and dinner. The Level 1 versatile, light filled function space is perfect for your next corporate or private event. The Campari House signature stained glass private booths located in the Lounge are also available for hire and ideal for intimate meetings or exclusive group bookings in the evenings. Finally wander up to either of the greatly anticipated rooftop bars for some of Melbourne’s best pizza. The seasonal menu showcases modern Italian inspired cuisine that utilises both locally sourced & sustainable ingredients we hope to reflect sensibility with contemporary flair while staying true to their traditional roots. Whether you are looking for quick morning coffee, unforgettable dining experience or a quiet drink on the roof top under Melbourne’s striking star lit sky, Campari House is sure to impress.

Campari finds itself operating in Melbourne's increasingly crowded Hardware Lane, a great eating strip just off the hustle and bustle of Bourke Street.

Food is quite OK, as are the service and the prices. That said, nothing particularly stands out as offering Campari House as more than a middle of the road experience. You won't be disappointed nor will you be blown away.

A nice place for a relaxed breakfast along Hardware Lane. The service was pleasant and helpful as well as quite quick. There aren't many things on the menu but along with the sides there is enough.

I ordered a lunch set, chicken pizza and a drink. I spent almost $20 on inedible pizza. The knife was useless in tackling the pizza base. I ate two slices out of the eight. It was too chewy and didn't taste very yummy. I will not go back. If i do, it will be for drinks on the rooftop. That's about it

Came here for Drinks on a Friday night. Quite a few stairs to climb to get to the top but we had a membership card that have $4 house whites. Not bad. The place was full and had a good vibe. Didn't eat any food.
