Francesco and Caterina Catanzariti arrived in Canberra from Calabria in Southern Italy in 1957, where they easily immersed themselves within the Australian and Italian communities. After several years of working within their profession in the tailoring industry, Francesco and Caterina decided it was time that they shared their passion for authentic Italian cuisine, by bringing a “little bit of Italy” to Canberra. This resulted in the establishment of Santa Lucia Trattoria opening their Kennedy Street, Kingston doors in 1975, becoming the first traditional Italian restaurants in Canberra. Santa Lucia quickly became an institution in Canberra, with stories a plenty of the Italian hospitality Francesco and Caterina provided Canberra.

Established in late 2014 at “The Hamlet”, in Braddon, as 10” Custom Pizzeria, then opening a second store in the same location, aptly named “Pasta’d”, the 2 stores merged at Bailey’s corner in the city, under the new name “SoLita” Translated “Stand Alone” & also derived from South of Little Italy, our philosophy was to provide traditional, home style Italian cuisine, and lots of it, at a reasonable price. Emphasising welcoming & friendly service, and a focus on super quick food delivery (Our pizza has a 2-3 minute bake time, with a “Forno Bravo” wood fuelled oven pumping out heat at 400 degrees Celsius), we ensure you are not kept waiting once your order has been received by our team of chefs.
