About Little Red Robin

‘Our fondest memories are of little red robins singing and darting among the vines in the warm Tuscan afternoon sun filled with delicious food, luscious wine and laughter.  This is how our story begins’

Little Red Robin Restaurant & Wine Bar is a small cosy restaurant with a welcoming and intriguing dining experience located in the leafy & buzzy suburb of Lane Cove. Taking inspiration from the traditions and culinary riches of the cultures of the Mediterranean this modest restaurant & wine bar aims to treat its patrons by reimagining classic recipes in a contemporary aspect. 

Nestled in a lane way in the Village of Lane Cove, Little Red Robin offers a cosy setting to enjoy small sharing plates at the bar or full sharing meals at the comfortable banquet seating, accompanied by some of the most intriguing indigenous grape varieties and unusual wine styles the old world has to offer. Our promise is to keep on surprising with frequent menu changes driven by seasonality. 

The fit out is stylish, edgy, with intriguing textures, fabrics and colours.  The full copper bar is a centre piece.  The comfortable designer Italian furniture by James Richardson adds a little bit of glamour. A cocktail in an etched glass martini glass takes one on a luscious journey.  Small and intimate. Sophisticated and stylish. 

Opening from 4pm Tuesday and midday to midnight Wednesday to Saturday.  Afternoons become aperitif time, where meetings could easily move from the boardroom to the bar in the late afternoon / evening.  

The Dream & Vision


Little Red Robin started as a dream about 5 years ago. Alessandro Nelli & Michelle Warren, owners and the vision behind Little Red Robin, researched and looked for the perfect site, built a business plan and then identified Lane Cove as an upcoming foodie area with lots of great people, restaurants and loads of potential. ,

Going through major developments at the moment, Lane Cove may seem like a big risk, but Alessandro & Michelle are confident with the future, with Little Red Robin looking out over to the new Lane Cove park, parking and shopping centre development.  “It’s a building site now, but this will be the centre of Lane Cove and quite possibly the North Shore.  When I found this small site, I felt it was a great spot due to the future developments and that it was small and cosy and off the beaten track” Alessandro said.
