More about Italian Chef, South Yarra

Don’t forget about Italian Chef’s daily aperitivo, Pizza Tuesday specials, and breakfast specials, and the three amazing spaces that can be booked for private events!

While the decor at Italian Chef may be sleek and modern, the dishes on offer at this Melbourne restaurant are as rustic as you can get. In true Italian style, begin with a selection of antipasti like the funghi croccanti (a flat mushroom stuffed with mozzarella and crispy pancetta on a bed of rocket with balsamic vinegar and olive oil) or some salmone affumicato (carpaccio of smoked salmon with fennel in lemon, orange and mandarin sauce with balsamic reduction).

With a separate menu dedicated entirely to pizza, you may struggle choosing from the lengthy list over at South Yarra’s Italian Chef. We recommend going for the salsiccia e chips topped with tomato, fior de latte mozzarella, sausage and potato chips, and the mezzaluna half of a traditional pizza loaded with mushrooms, mozzarella and salami, with the other half folded into a calzone. Or, you could indulge in a traditional pasta, meat or seafood dish. Take a trip over to Italian Chef’s Chapel Street location and find out why this restaurant is such a popular choice in Melbourne's South Yarra for yourself.

5 star food, great service, great atmosphere, we loved it and will definitely visit again. The chocolate pasta was a favourite, something special and surprising.
