Italian
Maccaroni Trattoria Italiana in the Melbourne CBD is serving rustic and authentic Italian food like its meant to be – flavoursome, simple and made with a healthy dose of Italian passion. The chefs behind this Manchester Lane restaurant are dedicated to following traditional recipes (just like Nonna used), using their knowledge from homeland Italy and adding just a touch of gourmet modernity. Freshly made pasta is undoubtedly the star of the show at Maccaroni Trattoria Italiana, ranging from gnocchi and tagliatelle to fettuccine and pappardelle. Yet the menu also offers rustic pizzas, traditional mains and homemade desserts that will satisfy any guest – especially when enjoyed alongside the Italian and Australian wines available. Better yet, the service and atmosphere of Maccaroni is both genuine and inviting. Located in the Melbourne CBD, this restaurant is understandably popular and making an advance booking is highly recommended.

    Booked table was inside but it was way too hot and stuffy. The staff were great letting us move outside and we had a very nice meal. A little on the pricey side but we enjoyed it. Worth a try, but make sure you book

    Food was hit and miss this time around. Whilst my gnocchi was lovely, the baked meatballs were dry and slightly burnt. Tables are quite close together so may not be suitable for people with mobility requirements. It’s also noisy which needs to be factored in. The bathroom facilities are extremely small - you cannot access one of the stalls if someone is using the basin.

    Food was great & served promptly which was great for pre-theatre. Odd that some staff couldn’t take orders & had to go get someone else - happened twice asking different people. Those who could take orders where either rushed off their feet or inattentive.

    The restaurant had a great feel to it when we arrived. It was busy, we were served quickly, drinks came back straight away and the food was great and exactly what we ordered. Highly recommend. We were travelling down from Brisbane and found this on open table with good reviews. Lived up to expectations.

    We picked Maccaroni Trattoria Italiana as it close to the Regent Theatre which we were going to after dinner. So location is great. Service was very good and staff were friendly. Food was very tasty (we ordered a couple of pasta dishes) and came out in a reasonable amount of time.

    This was our first time at Maccaroni Trattoria Italiana and although we enjoyed the food we found the back ground music to be too loud and not "dinner" music but more suited to a pub. Conversation was difficult with the general patron noise level, let alone also competing with the music.

    This was our 2nd visit, as it’s close enough to walk to either The Regent Theatre and the Atheneum theatre. It was easy to book online and the service was awesome, even though it was a busy Saturday night! I had gnocchi Napoli (yum), and my husband had the lasagna and he said it was the best lasagna he had ever had!! Their garlic bread is also delicious! Our nice friendly Italian waiter recommended the almond dessert, he was absolutely correct, it was delicious! We will be back and will bring our friends with us when we’re in the city next time!! 👏
