Pentolina Melbourne is an homage to pasta. Yes, you read that correctly and you should most definitely take note. This chic restaurant in the heart of the Melbourne CBD is tucked away on Little Collins Street where it whips up simple, unpretentious pasta that will leave you with tears in your eyes. Well, maybe not, but the pasta is really delicious. Inspired by home-style Italian cooking and the family background of owner Matt Picone, the name Pentolina translates to little saucepan. Expect freshly made pasta dishes including marinara with calamari, prawns, mussels and clams; conchiglie salsiccia with pork and fennel sausage, crispy cauliflower and rosemary and the fettucine Pentolina cooked with prawns, scallops, saffron, cream, brandy and salmon roe. One of the best Italian restaurants in Melbourne, reservations here are essential.
