ABOUT Pentolina Fresh Pasta & Bar
Italian Restaurants

Tucked away just off Little Collins St, this Italian eatery is serving up homemade pasta with a menu abundant with options for those with dietary requirements.

Pentolina (Italian for little frying pan) is like stepping into a secret little Rome backstreet restaurant. Matt Piccone, barista at Pelliginri’s for 19 years, has opened his first restaurant in honour of his father and his Pugliese heritage. The burgundy and brass décor is elegantly complemented by terrazzo floors, a burgundy-grain marble bench top and Pelligrini-style stools. The range of pasta types includes classics like pappardelle and gnocchi, as well as some more unusual but traditional like spoia lorda (“mini cheese ravioli”) and nidi di rodine (wholemeal flour & porcini “swallow’s nest” with spinach, ricotta, asparagus, potato & truffle cream).

The focus on local and seasonal produce makes for hearty yet creative dishes that would make both Nonna and the modern Melbournian proud, like the delightfully fresh beef carpaccio, zucchini flower with buffalo mozzarella and thick cut chickpea fries with a black garlic mayo. Gluten-free pasta from Ardor Food Co is available for $2 extra. For the indecisive or overwhelmed, there is a $50 a head “feed me” menu with a spread of pasta dishes, entrees and dessert selected for you.

Pentolina also serves up a fresh and unique cocktail list, with all the classics as well as House cocktails including the unmissable The Godfather, with Rum Diary Spiced Rum, pineapple shrub, lime, Branca Menta Bitters.
