Funghi e Tartufo' - Italian plant based restaurant

Who ever said that to eat vegan and earth friendly food you need to renounce the delicacies of traditional Italian cuisine?
Our Chef Alessandra D'Angelo moved to Australia from Sicily in 2009 and she has been working incessantly on vegetarian and vegan recipes since then.

At Funghi e Tartufo, she have turned plant-based food into something so delicious that you won't desire anything else!

In a converted 19th century warehouse in the heart of Melbourne CBD, Funghi e Tartufo – meaning Mushrooms and Truffle in honour of their signature dish – will offer you a unique experience leaving you breathless.

The inspiration is traditional Italian and the vision is a modern and earth friendly way to marry deliciousness with plant based food.

    Went here with friends for my husband’s birthday. We couldn’t have asked for more. The food was absolutely delicious, if I conjure up a vision of the perfect Italian meal of amazing rich sugo, with unctuous roast eggplant and soft tagliatelle that’s exactly what I got for my main. The entrees of arancini, vegan cheeses and “meat” balls and wines were lovely too and we had friendly, well paced service.

    Great vegan food. Highlight was the pappadelle pasta with mushroom sauce and the carbonara. And all desserts were amazing. Highly recommend this place for vegan and non vegan diners.

    Food is presented amazingly, taste is great. Staff were helpful but at times seemed like there needed to be more team members. Table was near the stairwell which was very cold and drafty. Overall good experience.

    I have been to Funghi E Tartufo a few times now, This time cost cutting was evident and our waiter, while very attentive, lacked basic knowledge. We were not offered spoons for the pasta. There was not salt and pepper on the table, we had to ask. Parmesan cheese was not offered. The range of wines was limited. Went to Roccoco in St Kilda last night. A much better expereience,

    We weren't allocated a table inside so street noise wasn't great, and a bit cold as well! Otherwise service was great, friendly staff. Food was outstanding, definitely recommend.

    Table was slanted and almost falling, asked to move, was denied and told to move back due to time, no one came in to the spare table for nearly an hour. Barely got checked on, had to ask for oil for bread ($5 for TWO slices)

    So disappointed in my experience from this place. Woke up this morning with the worst stomach ache too. Food was served cold and presentation was sloppy. Partner didn’t even get cheese on his risotto which was as bland as anything- must’ve forgotten to put salt too as it was cold and tasteless. Waiter served all the women who walked in after us and ignored us for a good 15 minutes. Never again

    Food here is A-m-a-z-i-n-g! Never once had a sub-par experience, everything is delicious and it's exciting to have Italian food that is vegan and so much of it is also gluten free. On my recent visit the service wasn't great as we often had to wait extended periods and flag down a waiter. I suspect that must have been because they were short staffed and if so, I just wished they had told us when seating us as then we could adjust our expectations and not been left wondering if we had been forgotten about.

    I’ve been to Funghi e Tartufo a few times and I’ve always been very happy with the food, the service and the location. The staff is extremely nice and helpful, the food tastes amazing and the price is fair for how well you eat. Recommended 100%.

    Amazing traditional tasting vegan Italian food. The lasagna was huge and perfection. The mushroom truffe pasta was incredible. One of the best meals we have had out and we cannot wait to go back. Definite must visit for all vegetarian and vegans. Meat and dairy eaters would not even know the difference. Bravo!

    Ambience was nice, service was excellent, food was disappointing. I’ve been vegan for 3 years and for the price of the food, I was really expecting more. It was tasty but nothing stand-out. Really wanted a bit more value for money.

    Service was very professional, the Lasagne was over cooked and had to be sent back but the replacement was prompt and the staff were great about providing an entree while organising a new main.

    What is this sorcery? Or should I say “sauce-ery”? 😅 The most amazing ravioli and gnocchi, great atmosphere and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Looking forward to trying more from the menu next time we are in Melbourne. Highly recommend to vegans and non-vegans alike. Delicious. 🤌

    Had a great night out for a birthday celebration. The ambience was relaxed with the dining room comfortable and well proportioned. Comfortable seating and plenty or room. Ample drinks menu with good-quality cocktails. Food was a generous serve and all the dishes were balanced and tasty. Left full and happy.

    Very disappointing service, our waiter was not friendly, and did not make us feel welcome. Menu and cuisine were not introduced to us, intolerances were not discussed, unavailable menu items were not mentioned, rude response when we ordered those items. My partner has a severe pumpkin allergy and when her main came it was called a ‘Pumpkin Carbonara’, smirked and walked off. I made it clear to him allergies were not a joke and he tried to justify the joke. Poor. We nearly walked out 5 minutes after we sat down in the downstairs section, smelled like a toilet and like it had been blasted with air freshener. The chicken meal we had was not cooked properly. So many negatives and just a disappointing experience overall. Not planning a return visit anytime soon. Happy to be called to discuss as I am sure the owners/managers will be mortified their customers are being treated like this.

    Food was absolutely incredible. They did forget to serve our salad altogether and it was difficult to get the attention of staff but it was probably just busy downstairs. Food really was out of this world
