About Cafe Grumento
Port Melbourne is a hub of activity in the Victorian capital, and understandably, the area is stocked with great places to eat. There’s Vietnamese and Chinese, curry houses and Thai temples, Mexican restaurants and sushi counters, Greek gyros and plenty more besides. The twin towers of Italian and Australian are always predominate in the Melbourne dining scene, however, and if you take a trip to Cafe Grumento on Beach Street, you can be confident of picking up the best of both worlds. They offer a chic Aussie cafe environment, with all the homely trappings, plus pizzas and pastas for those who like a taste of the bel paese, crepes and gnocchi – not to mention an extensive Italian wine list – and all you need to do is to make the journey to experience the lot. They’re perfectly placed for those arriving at Station Pier, for those at the beach or those taking the tram in from the CBD, so book a table and head on in for an Italian restaurant in Melbourne with a real personal touch.

Staff were wonderful. Offered to heat up our meals because we'd been talking too much! Delicious food. Comfy seats. Lovely atmosphere. Will go there again.
Great atmosphere, staff & food. Wednesday night is Locals Pasta night so we went as a group of ten. We have been before and will go again. Consistently all good!
We met our family for breakfast before boarding our cruise ship 'The Golden Princess'. Great ambiance, efficient friendly service, modest prices. An excellent venue for meeting with friends.
Lovely evening. John and his staff looked after us very well. John is very attentive and caring and welcoming. We had a table of 16 and we were all comfortably seated. The French vanilla slice was delicious.
Friendly service, reasonably priced food. Menu fairly traditional but had run out of my preferred menu item at lunchtime on day of visiting. No outdoor heating which is disappointing on a cold day given the great location and large undercover area of which to take advantage. Shared council toilets with no soap.
Great staff, John is an excellent host. The food is good however the Linguini di Mare was a little short on seafood. We had a group of five and we came away satisfied. The bill was reasonable at $35/person.
Ther was a good selection of food on the menu. The items were Italian style food and were well cooked and presented. The service was very good and friendly.
Great spot for locals! Friendly staff and welcoming owner. Good pasta and wine special on Thursday night. Tasty Italian food. We will definitely go again.
A cheerful little place with decent food and a friendly vibe - nothing super fancy but a great spot for locals and their families to eat.
