About The Olive Jar Cafe

Life is a combination of magic and pasta at The Olive Jar Café on Rathdowne Street in Carlton. The home of Australia’s first home cut pasta and pizza restaurant, this well-loved Melbourne dining destination transports guests to Italy through food, rustic décor and wait staff singing tunes…that’s amore! From a menu showcasing dishes from the regions of Southern Italy, perhaps start with antipasto della casa, or oven-baked black olives, with garlic, bacon and onion; before pasta plates such as fettuccine carbonara, with a touch of cream, bacon and onion. Pizza lovers salivate over slices like salmon, cheese and avocado, or beef, hot salami, Italian sausage, tomato, cheese and capsicum; while seafood lovers opt for barramundi fillet, sautéed grilled prawns, rocket and lemon butter.
