It's for the pasta

The bread actually. Can't get bread like this any where else! The pasta is of course what it's great at. One of the first restaurants on Bourke St., going into it brings a rush of nostalgia. Don't ask for salad by itself. The tells me off - you come here for the pasta not the salad! The coffee is... read more

Well no, not the best meal ever had in a restaurant, but have been returning since 1958, on a Wednesday, for the best Cannelloni. Only served on Wednesdays. Menu has stayed the same, decor only changed in recent years and some of the waiters were young then! Nonna used to be slaving away in the kitchen! Have lived in Perth... More

We wanted a good coffee so off we walked up the street from where we were staying to the place we visited years ago. Last time we were there the service wasn't particularly friendly but the coffee was good, this time there was no one behind the bar and only 2 other customers. The place did not smell nice at...

You don't go there for the food. You don't go there for the service. You go there because the establishment has this old school 1950s classic charm. The wooden bench tops. The old Italian coffee making machine. That gorgeous facade and 1950s decor - it looks like the place you would meet James Dean or Marilyn Monroe or Elvis taking... More

Bourke st institution, I like the granita, the casual style, the food is fast and good, it is always the same type of experience a definitive style which I really enjoy. When in Melbourne, just great.

Have been coming here for years and it hasn't lost its appeal - food is great but perhaps the authentic atmosphere makes it even more special. Always crowded so you can't always get in when you want to but worth the effort if you love traditional Italian.

Enjoyed some wonderful pasta and friendly atmosphere in this great little place on Bourke street. Made welcome and didn't feel uncomfortable here on my own while exploring Melbourne while my husband was working here.

Looking for a classic Italian pasta dish then this is it.Unlicensed, noisy, vibrant and great food this place has it all.Friendly family style service this is the best cafe style Italian pasta place I have been to. I rarely eat out without wine but am happy to forgo the wine to eat here. "Simply the Best".
