Italian
We are a neighborhood Osteria in South Melbourne. We make fresh pasta daily and feature a range of Italian banquet share dishes, a seasonal wine list and inventive cocktails.

We are located at 268 Park Street on the Corner of Park & Perrins St, just down from the iconic South Melbourne Town Hall.

Our philosophy pays homage to the Italian traditions of 'fatto a mano,' OR, 'made by hand,' referring to the craftsmanship that translates through our seasonal menu.

Our kitchen is open for lunch and dinner seven days.

Went there with my Italian girlfriends. Loved the atmosphere, the modern Italian cousine and wine. Made us feel like we were back in Italy. Interesting combination of ingredients (had the black tagliolini with ‘nduja and bottarga) - very original. Lovely staff, it’s nice to see them smile after a long day.

Maybe it was because we arrived with kids (foodies in the making) but the experience was underwhelming. Wonky table in the corner near the service area, minimal engagement from the front of house staff, menu not explained and specials explained as an after thought. Food thrown down on the table by kitchen delivery person. with 0 engagement and no care. Mains just OK (adults didn't have pasta), very salty sauce, fish just OK and unopened clam not picked up by the chef. A little disappointing for my husband's birthday.

Just superb food and great selection of wines with attentive and discrete service. Hopefully they won't get a lot of attention from this review and I will still find it easy to get a table

A very good neighbourhood spot with excellent food, service and wine selection. Good for romantic dinner or a small group. We has pasta dishes and both were excellent, as well as grilled asparagus and broccolini. Happy with all our choices.

Delicious pasta in a great location. I don't normally venture to this side of town and so had help from Dr Google in finding a good pasta restaurant. Park Street Pasta and Wine did not disappoint. We ate at the early sitting. Service was brisk but friendly. The pasta was fantastic and there was a good choice of wines to match. Dessert and cheese were all terrific.

We really enjoyed the authentic Italian food and glad we gave the restaurant another try as we didn’t really enjoy our first visit.
Will definitely go again and recommend to friends.

The oysters were fine, not the best but fine. The ragu pasta was bland and had one tiny piece of meat in it. The truffle pasta didn't taste much of truffle even though i could see the bits of truffle on there. Overall pretty flavourless.

Overall the food was disappointing but the service and ambiance was great.

Great food, very enjoyable evening.
Now having been there recommend asking for down stairs and regular seating
Upstairs if not full could feel a little isolated and the high chairs bar type seating would not suit me.

Sign of a great restaurant is when it’s busy on a Sunday night. This was no exception. Interesting, creative menu prepared expertly. Friendly, attentive service with busy bustling atmosphere. Loved it
