We are deeply saddened by the death of Pellegrini’s restaurateur Sisto Malaspina, who was murdered in the November 9 Bourke Street attack. Malaspina was a treasured stalwart of Melbourne’s hospitality scene and will be missed.

The grand old dame of Melbourne's restaurant scene offers comfort food at comfort prices (unless you're gluten intolerant, then you shall seek little comfort here). There's something special about sitting at a 70-year-old bench on a 70-year-old stool and looking at a 70-year-old menu while you shovel into a sliding colossus of lasagne ($16). We recommend it highly. A white shirt, not so much.
