Italian Cuisine in Melbourne

After having their population go from ~8000 in 1946 to nearly 100,000 by 1961, the Italian restaurants in Melbourne are considered their own special love affair. Having our own Little Italy along Lygon Street, the surrounding Melbourne CBD (Central Business Districts) and streets are lined with the very best of Italian scenery, culture, and fun.

Italian Culture’s Influence on Melbourne & its Cuisine

Since the 1970s, Italians have shaped Melbourne culture, now bound to it intimately. Can you believe that after organizing their first communities in Melbourne, Italian restaurant owners and grocers literally introduced olive oil, garlic, pasta, and zucchini to us Aussies?!

Thinking of Melbourne without Italians is to reimagine the entire landscape – all coffee cafes and favorite pizza spots simply gone. The Italian influence is astounding – indelible/ingrained in the Melbourne community.
