What would we do without pizza or pasta?
We honestly, have no idea! Lucky for us, Italian restaurants in Melbourne know what they’re doing, with proper pizzerias serving up stone-baked and woodfired pizza, done the traditional way. Craving a margarita? Or perhaps a pumpkin & prosciutto is more your style? You'll find some of the finest pizzas in Australia in the Victorian state capital. In fact, the city is home to Australia’s very first pizzeria, going strong since 1961. Prefer pasta to pizza? Dive into a generous portion of spaghetti alla puttanesca, a spicy twist on the pomodoro recipe, enriched with capers, black olives and fresh oregano, or feast on homemade gnocchi with a rich tomato sauce brimming with flavour.
