If you want authentic Italian you cannot go past Bakini on St Kilda Road. Head chef Simon Righetto has come from Tuscany's two Michelin-star restaurant, Gambero Rosso, so you know it's the real deal. Whether you're sampling the beetroot and ricotta hand-folded pasta or the beautifully hand-rolled pumpkin gnocchi, the combination of traditional and modern Italian is enough to take your breath away. All the organic produce is sourced locally or from Italy itself – ahh bellissimo!
