I dined here recently with a friend and it's like stepping back in time, which I think adds to the charm of the place. We were seated at the bar and ordered pasta. The plates that arrived were very generous, and I ate most of mine. When we finished eating we were told the price of the bill and immediately... More

Always been a favourite since my late high-school years, where a visit to Pellegrinis was almost compulsory with every visit to the city. Normally busy with everyone gladly enjoying their food alongside others, with the waiters normally chatting and creating a warm, cozy experience. I had the bolognese last time and was sadly disappointed.. Seemed to lack the zest of... More

The only downside was the rudest male behind the counter I jave ever encounted in the hospitality industry.This guy ruined what was a great meal by his sulky I dont want to be here attitude and it wasnt just us this happened...

I work 30 seconds from pelligrinis and could go there every day but I don't and I was reminded why last night. Incredibly rude arrogant waiters who made little effort to provide anything resembling service. Appalling pasta that was cheap yes but cheap quite obviously. Melbourne is blessed with great low cost Italian restaurants - just annoyed I didn't walk... More

We were very lucky to walk in for a late lunch just as four people were leaving. We got to sit at the bar. The food was simple, piping hot and quick. I really loved the quick food, delicious pasta and thick bread. It was a cold Melbourne afternoon but the food warmed us right up. The coffee was good... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne. The food is always excellent and comes straight out of the oven. The service is genuinely friendly despite the fact they can be very busy. Simple, affordable and very Italian.

A no frills Italian eatery in the heart of the city. Cheaper than most Italian options and the portions are a decent size. Mains start around $12 they do a fantastic lasagne. It can get very busy and there isn't much space to sit down. You will likely be squished beside your fellow diners on the rows of high red... More

The place was packed on a weekday for lunch, we sat at the bar and ordered two pastas and two mineral water. I thought for the lack of service it was a bit expensive, no table cloths etc. Pasta was good.

Pellegrinis always has been and still is a Melbourne icon and institution. Authentic Italian trattoria feel, sit on the service side or at the rear near kitchen for the best experience

My wife and I visited today to end a 12mth coffee fast I had taken. Two long blacks and two strudels! The coffee was great, the coffee fantastic and the service friendly and welcoming. I couldn't ask for better.
