QIKI Cuisine Check: How to Choose the Perfect Pasta Dish for You!

Some may wonder why, at authentic Italian pasta restaurants in Collingwood, there are so many different names and varieties of spaghetti and red sauce. Most probably don’t even know the difference between carbonara and Bolognese! Take a quick look at these five variations of pasta below:

Pasta pomodoro

Consider this Italian dish “The Big Fundamental” – it comes with olive oil, succulent tomatoes, freshly-picked basil, and delicious pasta married to the sauce. Perfect Italian starter dish found at all the pasta restaurants in Collingwood.

Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese sets itself apart through having delicious meat minced right into the sauce! If you are a fan of “ragu” meat sauce, go Bolognese with cheese baby.

Spaghetti carbonara

Spaghetti carbonara has egg and cheese as a base. The result is a creamier, thicker, pastier pasta that is known for having the flavor stick to every part of the noodle. Yum.

White sauce linguine

Instead of a red sauce base, white sauce linguine uses heavy cream and olive oil to flavor the pasta. Look for these dishes to be served with seafood (e.g. – scallops) and mushrooms. Absolutely delicious.


Raviolis are the little pot sticker pastas that you can fill with yummy meats and cheeses for a burst of flavor! The raviolis served at pasta restaurants in Collingwood come packed with beef, cheese, veggies, and even fresh seafood… so delicious.

Sher Wagyu Lasagna

Wagyu beef is among the highest quality in the world. When layered into lasagna with its melted cheese and thicker pasta bite, the beef becomes the main player in an incredible flavor medley. An Aussie specialty and highly recommended.

Bottarga Gnocchi

With a bit of a salty flavor, bottarga gnocchi is for potato dumpling lovers everywhere. Pasta restaurants in Collingwood mashed potatoes with flour, egg, and ricotta cheese to create these little delights. Make sure you get them served with fresh herbs like basil and parsley!

Prawn & Crab Risotto

With seafood straight from the docks of Melbourne, the local pasta restaurants in Collingwood serve an amazing prawn and crab risotto. Cooked into a creamy, brothy consistency, the Italian-style rice is served with the freshest crab, making every bite a warm, melt-in-your-mouth experience.

Vintage Italian Appeal: QIKI History of Pasta Restaurants in Collingwood

The Italian community in Melbourne is one that has truly endeared itself to the heart of every Aussie. For every family-owned pasta restaurant in Collingwood, the neighborhood gets a little closer.

However, the vibrancy that came with the big wave of Italian immigrants post-WWII has certainly weaned a bit. The population is aging, and yet we need to link generationally to these “OG” Italian-Australian immigrants. Make sure to support your local pasta restaurants in Collingwood and every suburb; It’s our way of saying, “Thanks for the pasta!”

Spread the love by trying out a pasta restaurant in Collingwood today.
