Studio Esteta designs Via Porta cafe to look like an Italian street

Plaster surfaces and paved stone floors feature inside this deli-cum-eatery in Melbourne, which Studio Esteta’s co-director has designed to reflect her Italian roots.

Via Porta, which incorporates a deli, cafe and dining room, is the brainchild of Studio Esteta’s co-director, Sarah Cosentino, and her three brothers.

Together, with the help of the studio team, they wanted to create a family-run venue that was reminiscent of their childhood years spent cooking with their Italian grandmother.
