Pastameli is a family owned and operated Italian eatery serving fresh, authentic dishes including freshly made in house pasta, pizza, salads, appetizers and more.
It was my first visit to Pastameli and I ordered a seafood soup. It was tasty, with lots of fresh ingredients. Service was friendly and not intrusive. Considering they were very busy that evening and there were only two servers, I think the service was good. If I am in that area, I will likely visit and order the cioppino again.
I love to stop inside Pastemeli when I'm in the area, the food is constantly good & very fresh.
I've tried their pasta, pizza, salads and sandwiches over the years and today I bought their Turkey Sandwich. I bought my coke and at last minute bought their mini french baquettes for future lunches, and my lunch was tasty. When I got home, I toasted one of the french baquettes, amazing and loved each bite.
If you're up in the area of Caulifield and want to eat in or take out, the food is good, service is friendly and helpful.
Will be back.
NEW MANAGEMENT = EXTREMELY BAD RESTAURANT
I won't go into a long description of this place and the quality of its food, suffice it to say it is TERRIBLE in every sense.
Do not waste your time or money "checking it out" I can assure you, you will be disappointed.
Food is very bad, service is hurting, but mostly due to understaffing, dishes on the table were dirty, host and manager is crude and immature.
Altogether a very unpleasant experience for me and my family.
Pastamelli's always produces fresh food at good prices. The service is professional and attentive without being cloying. If you're trying to avoid the french fries, then this is the place to go. Great salads, including their house salad and a superb Caesar salad. Pizza, pasta dishes, sandwiches and burgers are always top-notch. Delicious breads and soups, too.
