Melbourne Italian restaurant deals: things to know before you go

Melbourne is blessed with some of the finest Italian restaurants in Australia. Whether you're organising a special occasion dinner or looking for deals on cheap Italian restaurants in Melbourne, our quick guide can help you make the right reservation.

Where does the best pizza in Melbourne?

The best pizza in Melbourne is some accolade and there's plenty of competition given the number of Italian restaurants in town. Grab a slice and decide for yourself at these top restaurants, renowned for their pizzas:

  • Soak up the traditional Italian pizzeria-style ambiance at La Q WoodFired Pizza and Restaurant in Kew. Sit on wooden benches and tuck into freshly-made pizzas, loaded with tons of toppings.
  • If you love pizza so much you could eat it for dessert, you'll be in your element at Cellini Lounge Bar. Among a varied menu you'll find chocolate pizza – as well as Cellini's delicious Pizza All'aglio Ito, which is a base flavoured with garlic oil.
  • Keep it simple with at Pizza E Birra in St Kilda – translating to pizza and beer – which is among one of the best Italian restaurants in Melbourne. Look out for their special offers and deals – how good does bottomless (eat as much as you like) pizza sound?

What types of pasta dishes can I get at Melbourne's restaurants?

Lasagne, cannelloni and carbonara are all hearty classics that really hit the spot. Italians take their pasta seriously – there's no end to the variations of dishes on offer at Italian restaurants in Melbourne.

Try pappardelle with rabbit at Tipo 00, Maltagliati at Grossi Florentino or linguine marinara at Mamma's Boy Trattoria. You can still find the homemade classics – but also inventive twists, such as spaghetti with capers and basil at Arlechin.

Can I get Italian street food in Melbourne?

Simple, quick and absolutely delicious, Italian street food hits every spot when on the go. Restaurants like Pezzo produce street food packed with flavour, famous for its ‘pizza pockets' – dough packed with fillings like meatballs, lamb and veal schnitzel.

Take a stroll along Lygon Street in Melbourne, which is often referred to as ‘Little Italy'. Here, you'll find a selection of Italian restaurants, cafes and ice cream stores serving delicious gelato. Visit Bar Idda, one of the finest cheap eats in Melbourne, serving rustic, street-style Sicilian.

What Italian dishes are the healthiest?

Italian dishes aren't known for being healthy – don't bother calorie counting when you're enjoying those indulgent creamy pasta sauces – but there are healthier options. If you're in the mood for pasta, tomato-based sauces are generally much better than cheese-based ones. Italian food covers far more than pasta and pizza and many restaurants such as Renzo's Bar serve grilled meats and expertly-cooked steaks.

Seafood dishes – king prawns or salmon fillet – are among the healthier options in Barklys Kitchen. If you want a lighter lunch, there's always Insalate e Contorni (salads) which usually combine an abundance of flavours.
