Park Street Pasta & Wine, located in a historic corner building at 268 Park Street, South Melbourne, is a friendly neighbourhood pasta & wine bar from Chef Angus Cadden and Restaurateur Alex Ghaddab.

Inspired by the twenty regions of Italy, Park Street Pasta & Wine pays homage to the Italian traditions of ‘fatto a mano,’ or, ‘pasta made by hand.’ Our menu features inventive sharing plates, classic pasta dishes that nod to various parts of Italy, plus a few modern iterations, all reflective of seasonal quality produce.

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

Our kitchen is open for lunch and dinner seven days.

Venue is beautiful, great setting and beautiful ambience. Service was very slow and we had several different service staff look after us during our visit which overall makes the experience seem quite disjointed. Food was wonderful however a little on the expensive side.
Food and venue are enough to make us go back and give the service a second chance..

Definitely for the food. However, the service could be improved . The lady we had was really unhelpful when we had to add one more person to the table. before checking with the tables nearby, she just outright said "the tables next to you doesnt want an extra seat in their way". i had to personally ask them myself and they were lovely and said "oh no worries!" For the surcharge we have to pay . being on a Sunday, i just expected the waitress to be more honest, rather than just shunning us off. Otherwise, lovely pastas and entrees

Such a great neighbourhood local that never disappoints! We went along ok Wednesday night and enjoyed a couple of pasta dishes, salad and dessert. There was a tiny hiccup with our order, however our waiter was outstanding and very thoughtful and generous. Thank you as always for a great meal!

Excellent food and service. The pasta is superb and the desserts are delicious. If you enjoy eating at the likes of Tipo 00, then you'll love Park Street Pasta.

Meal was nice but we were not served what we ordered. Also when ordering an additional wine two different wait staff brought a glass out ! We only ordered one and so the 2nd was sent back The whole scenario was a little Faulty Towers like.
We felt the process was poorly handled and it seemed that communication between staff was poor. We paid the bill as presented but it spoilt the whole experience.

Great night out - we had all the signature dishes and weren’t disappointed! Loved the polpette, the crudo, the pappardelle, and the bombolini!! All of it was amazing! We’ll be back.

Hadn't been there for a few months, but they always do a fantastic job / provide a fantastic experience. Menu might seem a bit limited, but when everything is made fresh on premisis everyday, I think that I can cope with that.

Had wanted to come for a while. So disappointed from the outset. Waitress was pushy at every interaction, wanting to take out order almost as we sat down, specials explanation was poor, I thought a restaurant called Pasta would have some pasta entrees, but no. My entree of roasted cauliflower was barely warm when it arrived, and just got cold as I ate it. The special of Carbonara was very average. I thought the wine list was horrendously expensive which made a dinner for 2 mid week over $180... that’s way too expensive for what we got.
I won’t be back.

My pasta came out with a dark curly hair in the bowl. They took it back, no apologies but offer to bring another bowl. It came out in less than 5 minutes and it was rock hard. Impossible to eat and undercooked.

Great food and Awsome space. Due to our lack of knowledge of Italian wines, we had questions so we could purchase a bottle. The waitress had zero patience and was pushy. Was not helpful and spoke quick and rude. Even the guy at the door opened the door and just stared at us. Like why u here 😂

Pasta with a twist, interesting deviations from the usual forms of serving pastas. highly recommended for the foodie at heart. Some lovely Italian wines also accompany their offerings.

Park Street Food and Wine was fantastic. We went with 10 people (including 2 toddlers) and they were were accommodating to all of requests, including re-preparing a meal which was unwittingly ordered for someone with an intolerance. The service was warm and friendly, and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend.
