Let’s keep it simple: pasta dishes have become some of Australia’s move beloved cuisines! In the past 20 years, us Aussies have come a long, long way in terms of how we view our national cuisine. Back in the day, if someone didn’t bring up meat pies as the national dish of Aussies, they were ruthlessly mocked for not understanding Aussie culture. Now, falafels, pho, spring rolls, curry, sushi, and yes, pasta, could all be considered a national pastime! We’ve come a long way in Melbourne since the 1950s, so we thought for this post, we would focus on Italian-inspired pasta restaurants in Fitzroy. If you want the best pasta spots near and around Brunswick St, read below for our locally-vetted best picks!
As we mentioned above, pasta restaurants in Fitzroy are predominantly Italian-inspired in their ingredients, preparation, and presentation. It seems that Aussies differentiate between the best pasta restaurants in Fitzroy and the best Italian places! This is odd because Italians brought coffee, pizza, pasta, and olive oil to Australia. Their contribution is so deeply ingrained in our national culture that it gave us the foundation for world-renowned coffee, and also made our pasta arguably the most authentic outside Italy itself!
Regardless, we love that our local pasta restaurants in Fitzroy bring a taste of Rome right to our doorstep 😊. At the same time, these pasta restaurants in Fitzroy celebrate both their Italian roots and Aussie culture. Many of these establishments become part of our daily routine, turning into the best go-to spots for lunch or dinner. These pasta spots use thick noodles that absorb ragu or carbonara sauce exquisitely. The spaghetti never “drowns” in the red sauce, and if you want lighter sauces (e.g. - al pomodoro, alle vongole, aglio e olio), you can bet these places have perfected multiple variations of pasta dishes.
Master chefs in Fitzroy generously salt the water the pasta cooks in, and then do what many of us forget to do at home: they save that starchy, delicious pasta water, and put some of it back into the sauce. These little details are what make a pasta dish “come alive” with that delicious, melting, flavorful sensation. Master pasta chefs in Fitzroy make sure to then marry the sauce and noodles immediately. So the sauce “sticks” to the noodles instead of separating out. If you have had problems making tasty pasta at home, visit one of the pasta restaurants in Fitzroy below to get some fresh inspiration! There’s nothing like authentic pasta with sauce and remember – these places all deliver! You might not even need to leave your house; the taste of Rome can be brought right to your door 😊.
