It's named after an Italian dog breed that's famed for its truffle-hunting abilities. So it's only fitting that Carlton North eatery Lagotto is embracing truffle season with a series of Italian feasts dedicated to the famed fungus.

Held across four Thursday nights (July 14, July 28, August 4 & August 11), each of the Truffle With Friends dinners will serve up a generous shared spread centred around seasonal produce and premium fresh truffles. They'll also offer an insight into Lagotto's new winter menu.

Expect to tuck into some clever reworkings of classic Italian dishes, courtesy of Head Chef Matteo Fulchiati (ex Osteria Ilaria). We're talking, fermented potato bread matched with malted truffle butter; eye fillet done with egg yolk and a truffle jus; fried potatoes in wagyu fat and thyme; and tortellini starring fontina, chestnuts and truffle foam. You'll even find a truffle and amaretti tiramisu for dessert.

Tickets to the dinners come in at $125, with bookings available from 6.30pm each night.
