Our Venue

Dedicated to preserving the art of true Italian food + culture

Venue  Melbourne Event Venue Farm Vigano

We love the Italian approach to dining. It’s a food culture that believes quality produce is everything. This ethos rings true for Farm Vigano, the menu is seasonal, local and organic where possible and of course, best shared with friends. Specialising in antipasti, pizze and share plates, Farm Vigano is an ideal venue for gatherings of all sizes.

The property, with house, farm buildings, and designed landscape, provides the last tangible physical association with Mario and Maria Teresa Viganò, and is able to demonstrate their remarkable contribution to cuisine, hospitality, culture and the arts. This is on account of its long use and association with Mario Viganò, the patriarch of Melbourne's, and probably Australia's, most prominent restaurant family. Mario Viganò (1888-1966) was among a small number of Italian emigrants who pioneered the introduction of Italian and other cultures to the mono-culture of Anglo Celtic Australian society. 'Mario's' restaurant in Exhibition Street Melbourne, and 'The Farm' at South Morang were the principal venues for his contribution to Australian society.

The dining room is a transformed version of the original home of the Vigano family. Surrounded by picture windows above the plunging Plenty River Gorge guests can enjoy enchanting views from anywhere in the restaurant.

 

Venue inspections are highly recommended and can be arranged during our office hours by appointment. Appointments will ensure the room is free to view, as well as giving you dedicated time to have your questions answered. Please phone or email our function coordinator to help organise your function at Farm Vigano.
