Loved nipping in out of the winter cold to grab a couple of hot chocolates. We sat at the long bar and enjoyed all the memorabilia on display. Genuine article. A must visit to any visitor to Melbourne.

Pelligrini's in Bourke St is a Melbourne institution. Simple menu - home-style pasta, granite to refresh on a hot summer day, perfect coffee and delicious home style Italian cakes cut by the slice. The cheesecake is a good example - barely sweet, flavoured with citrus...More

Had a coffee and vegetarian ravioli. The coffee was amazing, the barista done a great job. The ravioli was ok. It was sloppy and squishy to eat. The sauce lacked depth and could have used some seasoning. It felt like they just heated up warm...More

The experience here is always reliable. Fantastic coffee and good basic fare you would expect from a southern Italian diner. The venue has original character that hasn't changes since it opened

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving

I do not believe bookings are available. Its a very fluid atmosphere. You walk in, are seated on the benches and stools. Just ask the staff what specials or what is good to eat that day and they will recommend.
