Winter means comfort food, and Fatto Bar and Cantina is stepping up to the plate by filling it with delicious, handmade daily, bottomless pasta through the end of July. Yes, that is correct: endless refills of fresh housemade pasta for $30 per person. The caveat is that the whole table must participate, but come on – did you really think you were going to get through all that pasta without help?
Dishes include orecchiette (the ear-shaped ones) with saffron cauliflower, golden raisins, white wine, parsley and parmesan; tagliatelle (the long, flat ones) with eggplant, tomato, oregano and salted ricotta; rigatoni (the tube-shaped ones) with red wine braised beef shin, parsley and parmesan; and bucatini (the long, thin, hollow ones) with tomato, olives, capers, anchovy and chilli. You (the happy one) will probably be too stuffed for dessert after that, but we suggest enjoying an a signature Espresso Martini or Negroni on the heated terrace with stunning views of the Melbourne city skyline. The special is available from 7.30pm on weekdays and noon to 4pm on weekends; bookings are required and can be made online or by contacting the restaurant.
