Ms Kent says her vision for Sbagliata is to create a warm, welcoming space where guests can come together over a shared love of great food and company. For her, Italian food is all about family, friends and welcoming people you don’t know to your table, and this is the experience she wants to recreate.

The menu will showcase a thoughtfully curated array of comforting woodfired dishes with something to satisfy every palate, according to Kent. Diners can look forward to savouring her signature hand-shaped pastas made using traditional techniques. 

A separate pasta kitchen will be dedicated to producing a vast selection of pasta varieties, both hand-shaped and bronze-cut.

Ms Kent noted a second kitchen equipped with a wood fired and coal grill will turn out a mouthwatering array of hot entrees, mains like succulent proteins and fish, and vegan/vegetarian options.

She added that complementing the cuisine will be an extensive wine list featuring labels from Italy and Australia, along with craft cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages.

The 174-square-metre restaurant will seat 120 guests in a nostalgia-tinged space with houndstooth curtains, cork tile floors, and a classic red and white colour scheme. 

With its mouth-watering Italian fare and warm, convivial ambiance, Sbagliata is sure to become a new dining favourite at Portside Wharf when it opens in just a few months.
