Maccaroni Trattoria Italiana in the Melbourne CBD is serving rustic and authentic Italian food like its meant to be – flavoursome, simple and made with a healthy dose of Italian passion. The chefs behind this Manchester Lane restaurant are dedicated to following traditional recipes (just like Nonna used), using their knowledge from homeland Italy and adding just a touch of gourmet modernity. Freshly made pasta is undoubtedly the star of the show at Maccaroni Trattoria Italiana, ranging from gnocchi and tagliatelle to fettuccine and pappardelle. Yet the menu also offers rustic pizzas, traditional mains and homemade desserts that will satisfy any guest – especially when enjoyed alongside the Italian and Australian wines available. Better yet, the service and atmosphere of Maccaroni is both genuine and inviting. Located in the Melbourne CBD, this restaurant is understandably popular and making an advance booking is highly recommended.

    Food (we had 3 x pastas) was really good but the greeting from front-of-house person was unsmiling... the person who served us was a bit better thankfully. The room / decor is bit meh. Definitely a disconnect between the quality of the food and the service / ambience.

    Went here 2 nights in a row. 3 mins from Westin. Pasta wonderful. Pizza was 4 cheese with addition of mild salami. Absolutely delicious. Their pizza crust is perfect. Not super large but make a res on line. You’ll be glad you did.

    The staff were lovely although the waiter we had didn’t understand a lot of English. My main course was hot and delicious but my husband ordered lasagne and it was only just warm. There weren’t a lot of desserts to choose from and I chose the cannoli which was horrible, dry and not at all sweet.

    Gorgeous traditional Italian in the CBD. Service was outstanding the staff were attentive without hovering. Food was delicious slight salty for my tastes but still excellent by most standards. The portions were generous without being overwhelming and we left very satisfied!

    the two pasta (especially spaghetti polonaise) are INSANELY salty. The strawberry mojito contains a lot of mint leafs that does make the drink taste bitter that I personally can not keep drinking it after the first try.

    We went there for Christmas lunch. Food was ok, drinks highly priced and the waitress we had was a grumpy young Italian girl. But the worst thing was he noise. Had to yell across the table. Won't be going back, especially as we don't live anywhere near the city.

    Delicious food, service was good except we had to flag a waiter to initially order drinks and food after being seated. Food came out quickly and was delicious. Atmosphere was loud but overall we would all go back to try more things off the menu. No one was left disappointed with their meal choices.
