about us

Luca Balbo / Tommaso Bartoli / Lino Torre

Located in a historic corner building at 268 Park Street, Park Street Pasta & Wine is South Melbourne’s friendly neighbourhood pasta and wine bar from Italian Restaurateurs Luca Balbo, Tommaso Bartoli & Lino Torre, combining their passion for food and experience in the hospitality industry.

Head chef Tommaso is behind the venue’s creative, seasonal dishes, which draw heavily on his Tuscan roots. He began his career in the kitchens of Florence and brings to Australia a deep knowledge and passion for food that he defines with his personal style.

All of our pasta is handmade in-house in the traditional ‘fatta a mano’ style, with a curated selection of Italian, international and local wines to match.

Our venue boasts an intimate bar and interior dining room plus a second dining room upstairs which doubles as a private event space – The Lombardy Room.

Outside, you’ll find an exterior terrazzo area and an open-air dining deck with festoon lighting, umbrellas and heaters for the cooler months.
