Maccaroni Osteria Italiana has all the features of a vintage Italian restaurant – and then some. This elegant but casual, family-run eatery on Queens Parade (right at Clifton Hill Interchange) dishes up an amazing spread of beautiful, traditional Italian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but it also bucks the trend by offering the only full vegan Italian menu in Melbourne. No, we don’t mean one or two vegan options, we mean the full monty, a ‘Vegitalian’ menu – from misto fritto and zuppa di funghi to start off, through a long main menu offering vegan lasagna, polenta with wild mushrooms and truffles, gnocchi with vegan Bolognese sauce and much more, to delicious, decadent homemade desserts and cakes (yes, they have vegan panna cotta). For vegetarians and vegans you simply couldn’t do better for Italian eating around Fitzroy North and Clifton Hill, but even for those unwilling to remove the cheese and eggs from Italian cooking this will be a very memorable meal.
Amazing flavoursome food with one of the best staff looking after us! Best vegan options and gorgeous Interiors as well! Defs reccomend this place to everyone

Very enjoyable, nice food and good ambience. Staff very friendly, no rush with service which spaced out our dinner. Easy parking, welcoming and menu catered for all.
