L’unica on ParkvilleL’unica on ParkvilleContact: Mel Spataro
Mel Spataro Director of L’unica on Parkville for 18 years, started his working life when he was 15 at William Angliss Institute of TAFE with a four year apprenticeship. His first job after completing his apprenticeship was at the University Café in Lygon Street. After honing his skills there he moved to La Cacciatore Restaurant in Grattan Street and then as Head Chef to the Calabria Club where he managed all the catering requirements of the venue.
It was in 1998 that he took over L’unica on Parkville as Venue Director. He explained that he and his handpicked team have the expertise to be the very best at what they do. And what they do best is to look after their customer’s every need with a minimum of fuss and maximum attention to detail.
Under Mel’s leadership L’unica blends modern sophistication and the traditional values of hospitality in a welcoming environment suited to every occasion worth celebrating. From wedding banquets, engagements, 21st birthdays and christenings to business conferences, the redecorated venue is the ideal setting for any function.
We asked Mel what was his most important and challenging responsibility and he replied without any hesitation: “Pleasing brides…everything has to be right”.

The function centre seats from 150 to 480 guests with a generous size dance floor, luxurious furnishings and tasteful interior décor with high tapered ceilings to compliment the elegance of the venue.
