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.

Service was not great, though food was good. Waiters were not attentive. Tableware used drink glasses n jug fr previous customers were left on table, this was not a good first impression when we were seated especially during these covid times.

I think there is not enough staff working that day. Had to wait 15 min outside waiting for a table although we already had a book. In terms of the order, I told the staff that I want parmesan cheese on the side and not mixed with the gnocchi but when they didn't separate it. And there was also confusion around my friend's order as well. I suggest that the owner of the business to hire at least another 1-2 staff on like Friday night to cope with the demand.

We chose to sit outside in the laneway, very pleasant on a mild evening. Service was friendly, attentive and quick (as it was a pre-show dinner) Food was lovely- we both had bruschetta and different gnocchi dishes, all delicious. Nice wine menu too.
