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 e 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.

the restaurant is a very cosy, intimate place to eat. The service was excellent; enthusiastic without being over the top. The food was sensational. Beautiful flavours, fresh, interesting and perfect portion sizes. The wine list was also excellent. Dessert was beautiful, and plenty to be shared.

There are lots of great Italian restaurants in Melbourne - and a handful of truly excellent ones. Park St Pasta and Wine is definitely the latter. Amazing, authentic Italian cuisine at very reasonable prices and an exceptional wine list with great options by the glass. Atmosphere, Staff and decor all fantastic.

I've been here a few times now and took along some new friends this time. Unfortunately, even though the food was great, the service was disappointing. We had to wait too long for both food and wine. Entree plates were not removed from the table even when mains arrived. The tables had been placed too close together. One poor guy had a waiter ask him to move his chair in so the waiter could get through. The waiter should have gone around the other way. The chairs should not be placed so closely. I thought this was going to be my favourite local but I think I'll give it a break for a while.

Thank you Broadsheet! I was looking for a wine bar/restaurant for an after work catch up and this gem popped up.

Initially it was only my friend and I dining, but my friends husband wanted to join us a few hours later, so we took an early booking to drink and graze whilst we waited.

The staff were knowledgeable and very accommodating. The Apersol Spritz was simply delightful. The oysters so fresh and delicious. The pasta special was the show stopper, beetroot and ricotta filled pasta with a butter sauce, that was until we tasted the pistachio ice cream- oh my word.

If you like a good red, try the Chianti Superiore, it was ridiculously good!

Great food, fresh home made pasta with exceptional ingredients, service was attentive and well suited to the venue. Cosy fireplace is perfect for cold Melbourne days, would definitely go back again, but the kind of place you go to every day for lunch, is a special occasion lunch venue for sure.

Some of the food was great but some of it was pretty average for the price. It was very buzzy but way too noisy for our table of 6 to actually talk or enjoy each other’s company. The duck was amazing but the pasta was overpriced and nothing special.

I have been to this restaurant three times now. Food is interesting and flavours are great. This time one of our group has a gluten intolerance and we had two vegetarians.
This made menu selection difficult and left them with few choices. I probably would not recommend this place for people with these limitations although the vegetable sides were apparently delicious. We however, will be back

The atmosphere upstairs was relaxing & fairly peaceful unlike many restaurants today which thrive on that hustle & bustle . we were a group of 8 so it was nice not having to compete with background noise. The pasta dishes were excellent if not a little on the small size.

Overall would recommend this Italian restaurant as quite authentic.

Pasta was ok. Service was a bit underwhelming. After the waitress “explained” the menu, we ordered. Among the dishes we ordered was a tomato and burrata dish. This was delivered with figs in place of the tomatoes. No explanation was given. When we asked the waiter we were simply told the dish had been changed. No one asked if that was ok, if we still wanted it. Would have kept it, but it was disappointing, as was the dish in the end. The celeriac dish was outstanding. The pasta was nice, however one was seriously under seasoned, and the seafood was over cooked in the other.

this little gem was recommended and we were not disappointed. Very good pasta selection and also a meat and fish dish. Very nice wine list; not too large and leans towards Italian wines.

Staff attentive and helpful

Amazing dinner with some of the best food we’ve ever had...seriously!

The T-bone steak that was a special on the night was outstanding. Cooked to perfection and plenty for 2 to share.

Genuinely one of the best Italian eateries in Melbourne.

My second visit and I loved it (again). I dined for dinner on my own and enjoyed some of the freshest oysters I’ve had for some time, followed by an elegantly simple spaghetti - just how it’s supposed to be. Exceptionally friendly staff. Can’t wait for my next meal.

After the hype and a couple of recommendations from friends that went on a weeknight, I was disappointed. The food was mixed. My agnolotti was really good but the tongue starter was largely tasteless. The other guests in our group expressed the same reservations. Despite the modest size of the dining room and the fact that it wasn't full, it was outrageously loud which not only compromised the ambience but also reduced the dining experience. Service was terrific but I will not be going back in a hurry.

The food was reasonable quality and well prepared - just lacking on portion size! The veal & wild rabbit is delicious but the serving was really small. The dessert also had great flavours - if only the sizes could be a bit more generous, it would tempt customers back for sure.

Great inner city restaurant with beautifully made, cooked and plated pasta being thre highlight.

Small but innovative wine list led by Italian wines and lovely list of classic cocktails.

The food was good, wine was good as was the service. It became rather noisy as the night wore on but was still ok. Unfortunately, no one told us that our booking was only until 8.00 so we had to make a very speedy exit - just wish we had been told at the start. Great night was had by all though.

Park Street Pasta and WIne is a great place for an Italian experience.

Menu is interesting, staff knowledgeable and friendly and tables are far enough apart for guests to converse and hear each other speak.
