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.

In my opinion, one of the best Italian restaurants in Melbourne. Their housemade pasta is always absolutely flawless and the selection of dishes makes it so hard to choose! Just need to keep going back to try everything.
Excellent drinks list too, with the perfect, varied selection of wines both local and Italian.

The Entree was fantastic.. we ordered the octopus, roasted cauliflower with macadamia purée and the burrata with heirloom tomatoes. All were cook very well, delicious and tasty. Each element was done well and all elements work well together.
We ordered 3 pasta dishes which we feel we’re underwhelming. We ordered the Tagliolini al nero, Agnolotti dal plin and house special carbonara. The most disappointing was my Agnolotti because the side of my pasta was dry and hard and I believe it was left out sitting for a while. The carbonara was also too salty for our palate.
One of the waiters asked my husband about the food and he casually mentioned about the carbonara dish. He offered if we want any dessert on the house which we politely decline. We didn’t expect him to take out of the bill which we definitely appreciate.
Service delivery was great overall but I certainly wish our pasta were better.

Was super awesome. Waiters were very lovely and knowledgeable, tiny bit squeezy but nice cosy atmosphere, complementary focaccia/olive oil/pork lard was amazing, wine delicious, pasta was incredible. I also had such a nice affogato with a very generous helping of frangelico. Not super cheap but worth every penny, we will be back once we've earned some more money/recovered from food coma.

The food and service were great!

Not a great wine selection for us....would have liked to have seen some pinots on the menu. Not fussed on heavy reds and don’t drink whites.

Nice place though & we will be going back.

The food as usual was excellent - especially the Agnolotti.
The only negative was a nearby table with two extremely noisy young ladies who made it difficult for many people to hear properly (especially us oldies).
The restaurant would benefit from some noise reduction features on the walls or ceiling or even carpets on the floor.

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

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.

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.
