There are superb Italian restaurants to be found all over Melbourne and wider Victoria, starting off on Lygon Street in Carlton and moving out all over the state. If you’re heading along the coast to the Mornington Peninsula, you could do a lot worse than taking a trip to Volpino Pizzeria & Bar on Lochiel Avenue in Mount Martha, where they offer up sumptuous Italian cuisine to a loyal crowd of locals and day-trippers alike. They open from 12pm every day and they can get busy – but you can secure the best seat in the house by booking your table ahead of time.
Volpino Pizzeria & Bar may be a long way from the Italian-Australian hubs of Carlton and coastal Melbourne, but their location out on the Mornington Peninsula doesn’t deter them from offering Italian cuisine that is the equal of any found in the city. Their location on Lochiel Avenue in Mount Martha boasts views of the water, a family-friendly and welcoming atmosphere and a wood-fired oven, so you can be sure of your every wish coming true when you take your seat at Volpino.
A wood-fired oven is always a good barometer for an Italian restaurant, but without a great menu of pizza choices, it can often be wasted. Volpino serve both rosso, tomato-topped pizzas and bianco, with fior di latte mozzarella as a base. Add to this a huge range of small plates – meatballs, saganaki, croquettes – and an extensive wine list and you’re sorted for a great Italian meal on the Mornington Peninsula. Simply book yourself a table and make the trip out to Lochiel Avenue in Mount Martha for a feed that the whole family can enjoy at Volpino Pizzeria & Bar.
