I always drop by Pellegrini’s when in Melbourne. It’s a little hidden gem on the top end of Bourke St. The Minestrone is the best I’ve ever had. They also serve up different types of pasta, Italian desserts and of course the best coffee, Vittoria...More

The Ravioli was wonderful and we got to eat in the kitchen which was very special. I love Pellegrinis it has very special memories for my husband and I. The desserts are big portions and so yummy.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving

I do not believe bookings are available. Its a very fluid atmosphere. You walk in, are seated on the benches and stools. Just ask the staff what specials or what is good to eat that day and they will recommend.
