Sticking to tradition, Bocconcini makes sure that diners enjoy Italian food as it should be – that’s simple, satisfying and incredibly flavourful.

Both pizza and pasta were sumptuous. Staff attentive and delightful.
Friendly and helpful staff from Italy. Authentic atmosphere and experience. Down to earth...not pretentious at all. Great Italian food and wine. We loved everything we ordered.
From pizza to seafood, the offerings at Bocconcini on St Kilda's Barkley Street are made with authenticity in mind – the pasta is fresh and made from scratch, and the desserts will put your local pastry shop to shame. The Melbourne restaurant’s atmosphere in the dining area is simple yet elegant, functioning both as a casual lunch spot for dining with friends, or the perfect date night destination. No matter what the occasion, Bocconcini is sure to impress with its fantastic cuisine and amicable service.
Pizzas at Melbourne’s Bocconcini are done both the Italian way, featuring a thin crust, or the way you’re probably used to eating it, with a slightly thicker base. We like ‘em either way – there simply isn’t a bad choice at this amazing St Kilda restaurant. Go for the Aussie topped with tomato, cheese, egg, ham and bacon, or get traditional with the Quattro Formaggi. The pastas deserve an essay all on their own, and include options like the vegetarian pumpkin ravioli with burnt sage butter and pine nuts, gnocchi gorgonzola or linguini carbonara. End with pavlova or tiramisu, then go ahead and start preparing for the next visit (booking ahead is the smart way).
