PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
This Melbourne institution has been feeding the masses for decades now; people who flock to this classic Italian espresso bar for honest Italian home-style cooking. Set in a long narrow space, the prime positions are at the bar with extra stool seating flanked by gold-backed mirrors and a large communal table in the kitchen also available.

There are no menus here, just a large hanging board that boasts the offerings. If there's something you fancy that isn't listed they can generally accommodate, though be prepared to receive a raised eyebrow if your wants are a little untraditional. Choose from the likes of minestrone du jour, spaghetti marinara, pizza napoletana, risotto primavera, ravioli Genovese, and cannelloni alla nicoise. If the side of bread that's brought with your meal isn't enough, a daily salad is also available. Try to leave room for one of the tempting Italian pastries on offer and possibly the strongest espresso Melbourne has to offer.

Fabulous food. Great Atmosphere. Friendly staff. The gelato is to die for! Every time I am in Melbourne my first thing to do is go there for a wonderful experience.

It's my first time to dine at Pellegrinis, and true to the reviews, it is home style Italian cooking at its best. Their cannelloni and watermelon granitas are superb! Must recommend to my friends who will visit Melbourne.
