Rocco's Bologna Discoteca was one of the silver linings during Melbourne's lockdown last year, popping up for just a couple of short stints in the Gertrude Street space that normally houses Poodle. But now, the much-loved sandwich joint is making a cameo appearance for one festive night as part of Good Food Month.

Swing past on Tuesday, June 22, to indulge in an Italo-accented feast that trips from the likes of rice-stuffed mussels and mini pine mushroom pizza pockets, to braised rabbit with cannellini beans and serves of handmade pasta caccio e pepe. There'll be mini versions of Rocco's legendary meatball sub doing the rounds, too, alongside a forward-thinking curation of vino from award-winning sommelier Giorgio De Maria (121BC, Rootstock Sydney). And you'd best bring your dancing shoes since the evening's lineup of Italo-disco DJs will be spinning tunes until late.

The night's food and festivities clock in at $69, with wines available to purchase as you go.
