We are a neighborhood Osteria in South Melbourne. We make fresh pasta daily and feature a range of Italian banquet share dishes, a seasonal wine list and inventive cocktails.

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

Our philosophy pays homage to the Italian traditions of 'fatto a mano,' OR, 'made by hand,' referring to the craftsmanship that translates through our seasonal menu.

Our kitchen is open from noon from Tuesday through Friday and from 6pm Tuesday through Saturday.

Delicious food, and the best service I've seen in a restaurant. It was a little over-valued for the money I paid vs the portions received.

Delicious meal as always at Park Street Wine and Pasta. Any choice is a good choice! My particular favourite is the agnolotti and papadelle. The bombolini are a must have for dessert. Keep up the good work, brilliant neighborhood gem. The complimentary bread and lard is always a nice touch to begin the meal, ours was forgotten on this occasion...oops.

Excellent food and wine. Nonchalant (snooty) service leaves a bit to be desired. A few children in the restaurant but well behaved so that was ok. I recommend this restaurant apart from the service. Truly well devised menu, wonderful pasta and something for everyone. Order the brussel sprouts!!

It's a pleasant room and the staff were friendly. Unfortunately the waitress spilled about a glass of wine in 3 rounds of pouring and we thought she might offer a glass to make up for it, but no. We were nearly ready to go and the waiter came and poured another bottle of mineral water for the table. I checked with my guests and no-one had ordered it so we left it and they took it off the bill.
The salt ricotta salad was lovely but I was told to make sure I tossed it well as all the ricotta was down the bottom. The bowl was very full of leaves so that was a messy experience better handled in the kitchen.
The sparkling water and espressos are over-priced. The food was good.
So with all the great eating in South Melbourne this was not a disaster but it doesn't make me want to rush back.

This was a surprising find - a neighbourhood gem with some unexpectedly spectacular yet humble dishes. Roasted Brussels sprouts with pancetta and parmesan cream was the standout.

On a cold Winter night, this was a warm, cosy & welcoming restaurant as my husband & I farewelled 2 lovely friends returning home overseas.
Not cheap, but really yummy food. Bread & spread on arrival was wonderful, & I really enjoyed my pasta with veal. Accompanying broccollini was brilliant. We shared a serve of doughnuts & other chocolate dessert - terrific. They offer stove top coffee but that's it , so couldn't have a tea/latte etc.
winelist was pretty good & service attentive without being overbearing.
We will be back again.

Small portions defiantly not value for money I have been to other mid-range smart casual pasta bars and they are far superior and much better value for money. Cacio peppe was really oily and I’ve had my share of the dish this was defiantly the worst I have had. Not good for vegetarians. Only positive was that the waitress was lovely.

Fantastic! Would highly recommend. I booked a larger table for my partner’s birthday group dinner and my request for a quieter space was honoured. The atmosphere was perfect for what we wanted, cosy and modern with a special occasion feel. The service was incredible, our waitress was very attentive and was very happy to help me with a few requests such as candles on the dessert.
Now the food-!! Wowee so delicious. We had a selection of entrees which were fab and the mains were sensational. All presented very well.
Will be returning.

If you love pasta, this is the place for you (although menu isn't limited to pasta, just my preference). It has just gone from strength to strength since it opened last September (which is unfortunate as makes it harder to get a table). The staff are great (friendly and not pretentious) and whilst the menu is limited (as they make it in-house everyday), the food is really good.
