About Cafe Marcella

Melbourne’s Italian community tends to crowd around Lygon Street and the district of Carlton towards the north of the CBD. A little further afield, though, there are Italian delights to be found in abundance, and up on Sydney Road in Brunswick, they have one of the best in the city. Cafe Marcella on Sydney Road boasts a menu that takes in all your favourite Italian dishes: from pastas Bolognese, Calabrese, Amatriciana and more to gourmet pizzas – pumpkin and goat’s cheese, chilli prawn, smoked salmon – and house specials, such as gnocchi with gorgonzola.

More about Cafe Marcella, Brunswick

The story behind Cafe Marcella is not a complicated one, but it stands in the great tradition of Italian food in the city of Melbourne. They bring a passion for the cooking of their ancestral homeland and combine it with the local tastes for artisanal products to create something new up at their address on Sydney Road in Brunswick. From there they offer a huge range of Italian classics, served with love and no little skills.

As with any Italian restaurant, Cafe Marcella built its reputation on great pizza and pasta: we recommend the house special, Marcella’s Pizza, topped with Spanish onions, Italian sausage, roasted capsicum and sundried tomato. Take a trip out to Sydney Road in Brunswick, a short walk from Jewell station and RMIT Brunswick campus, for a great Italian feed. Just remember to book your table ahead of time though, as they can get a little bit busy, especially at lunchtimes and on the weekend.
