Itali.Co is contemporary Italian cuisine done absolutely right. Plenty of love. Plenty of passion. Plenty of fine ingredients. It’s hard to overstate what a difference all of these things make when it comes to the food that leaves the kitchen. Itali.Co takes its residence in Melbourne’s St Kilda and has amassed quite the following of pizza and pasta lovers thus far during its time in what is one of the most buzzing culinary cities in the world. To be found on Barkly Street, Itali.Co doesn’t just specialise in great food – its hospitality is pretty hard to match as well. For a true Italian experience, make the trip to St Kilda.
For an Italian restaurant to stand out in Melbourne it has to do something special, so vast is the plain of restaurants to choose from. Itali.Co, we are delighted to report, is doing something special. On Barkly Street in St Kilda, this Italian restaurant carries sophistication and a contemporary approach that is quickly transforming it into the first choice for foodies far and wide. From distinctive and award-winning Naples-style pizzas to refined mains and plates of pasta, considering any other Italian restaurant in St Kilda besides Itali.Co does, to be honest, seem folly.
Begin your meal with a selection of antipasti in the way of chargrilled octopus or arancini, then weigh up your options when it comes to some of the finest pizza in Melbourne. Toppings are classics of Italy and we’d have to recommend the tartufata, complete with white truffle cream, fior di latte, mushrooms, rocket and parmesan. That said, the bresaola is also good with squacquerone cheese, air-dried beef and a citronette dressing. In terms of pasta, the homemade ravioli filled with beetroot, burnt butter, parmesan and poppy seeds is as intriguing as the braised beef cheeks with mashed potatoes, broccolini and bitter chocolate sauce that’s over on the mains menu. What are you waiting for? Give St Kilda’s Itali.Co a try!
