Had a falafel wrap and it was fresh and tasty! The queue for take away was long. Obviously a popular spot!

Just like the sister restaurant in Smith Street, Alimentari is always a safe bet. The food is excellent, and atmosphere pleasant. Staff are friendly.

Went here with friends as one of my friends had been here before and highly recommend it. It's very popular on smith street so we had to wait for about five minutes for a table which was fine as it was a beautiful table. We ate outside where the tables were spacious however, inside looked comfortable and the coffee station... More

Stopped here Sunday for a quick brunch before flying out back to Adelaide. Met by a buzzy atmosphere and pleasant, smiling staff who showed us to our table. We ordered Poached Eggs on toast and Crispy Bacon & Eggs on toast. Both meals came quite quickly as we had explained we were on our way to the airport but the... More

They have two restaurants, both good with some innovative food so much so that they have produced their own cookbook which we bought to replicate some of the dishes back in the UK

This is a great place to take a break if you've been tramping the streets of the Fitzroy area of Melbourne. Can be quite hard to settle on a place to eat or drink around here. The menu is select and delicious. I tried the homemade gnocchi with ricotta, broccoli and peas with a glass of Riesling which hit the... More

Everything good we'd read about Alimentari we experienced on the Saturday we ate here. Lunch menu was small but enticing however eggs any time of the day is good for us and we were not disappointed. The kasundi with corn cakes and egg was a standout. Excellent coffee and a shared bomboloni had us satisfied. Buy the cookbook - it's... More

Came to this place after seeing some good reviews. We didn't even eat breakfast. Asked for substituting salmon for bacon on one of the dishes to which the reply came that we don't substitute here sorry. Right...... was my response. So, it was too hard and (to be honest the menu was not that exciting anyway) we decided to just... More

I decided to go to Alimentari to have lunch after reading good reviews here. What a disaster! I had a lasagna, which the waitress said was very popular. At the very moment she put the dish on the table I foresaw I was not getting a good lasagna. It shook entirely. To make it short, an extremely overcooked pasta with... More

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighbourhood Profile
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.
