Di Casa Cafe Bar Restaurant
Dion Li Rosi started his apprenticeship at Va Tutto Restaurant in Ivanhoe at the tender age of 16ish, after growing up in an environment where food, friends and family were paramount, it seemed natural to take a position in cookery. His love of food and tradition provided the passion needed to work up the ranks in the kitchen and improve his technique and knowledge. With itchy feet, he parted ways with Va Tutto and accepted a role at De Bortoli Wineries to complete his apprenticeship and increase his product knowledge. The completion of his apprenticeship saw him once again climb the ladder of hierarchy for a further 3 years until the thirst for knowledge had him take a break from cooking to up skill with a nutrition course at ACNT, which provided some of the most sensitive dietary information that is integral within the industry. Being away from the pans was harder than expected, so the next step was to re-enter the industry, but concentrate on different cuisine. Classically Italian trained, Dion took a job at Two Beans and a Farm, where the menu was heavily Spanish/French. Within the walls of this 150 Year old Homestead, a bond was concreted with the manager, Tro Jerijian, who he brought with him to DiCasa Restaurant. At DiCasa, we are heavily produce and service driven, sourcing the best products from local businesses and processing from scratch to create the best possible European cuisine. Using old school family recipes from the old country while incorporating the world’s best produce, Dion is able to represent his cultural background. We go to great lengths chasing producers and cutting out the middlemen, to reduce food miles as we often buy straight from the source. Whether you are a romantic table of 2 or a group booking of 60, the emphasis is to cater each situation to the needs of your guests. This incorporates all dietary requirements, children meals, disabled access, music, lighting and décor.
The Lincoln is a grand old Carlton pub built in 1854.

The menu is available throughout the venue 7 days a week lunch and dinner, with the kitchen closing at 10pm every night and all day dining available on weekends. The kitchen works closely with small regional suppliers and is focused on using sustainable and seasonal produce, with as much as possible made in-house, from their bread, mustard and pickles to curing their own free-range bacon. The public bar has retained its art-deco features, with 12 taps featuring craft beer, showcasing speciality brewing at its best, and trusty Carlton Draught for when the footy is on the big screen. The space lends itself to a variety of areas suitable for groups of any size, whether a sit-down meal in the semi-private dining room, or standing canapés in the front bar.
