a taste of Italy

Welcome to Sorsi e Morsi. A rustic café restaurant and bar serving up a small piece of Italy in St Kilda. Tucked away on Blessington Street and a short stroll from the St Kilda Botanic Gardens, Sorsi e Morsi has become a local favourite in the area. We first opened our doors in 2013 with the goal of bringing Italian café culture to Melbourne’s inner south. With a reputation for great coffee and great authentic pasta and gnocchi, we welcome you to make a booking to experience the food and hospitality yourself.

 

At Sorsi e Morsi our menu comprises authentic, homemade Italian dishes just like the ones Nonna made when we were growing up. From home made pasta sauces to fresh pasta and gnocchi, we aim to deliver to you a delicious slice of home style Italian cooking. Our antipasti options are perfect for shared starters or small bites while sipping on a Aperol spritz or glass of Italian house red. All our menu options are also available for takeaway for those nights where you are not in the mood to cook.

 

Make a reservation and come sit under the tree on the outside terrace, sipping on a negroni and be transported back to the small towns and villages of rural Italy. On Wednesdays we have $10 martini’s and all day Sunday enjoy $10 Aperol or Campari Spritz on the sandpit. Or pop in for a late night treat with coffee and one of our homemade cannolis or tiramisu.

 

We are open for aperitivo and dinner Wednesday through to Sundays till late.

Dream of Italy 

Besides food, Italians are known for good coffee. We are open from 6:30am every morning for you to get your coffee fix. Whether it’s an espresso or piccolo or a flat white or herbal tea, we can get your day off to the right start. Our breakfast menu mixes standard café options with signature Italian dishes. All made with fresh ingredients and produce and with options for vegetarians and vegans.

 

Whether it’s a quick bite to eat during the work day or a catch up with friends, we serve lunch everyday from midday with a range of our spaghettis, fresh home made lasagne and gnocchi's along with our popular toasted paninis. And any meal isn’t complete without dessert! We have fresh cannoli’s and homemade tiramisu to tempt you with.         

 

New beginnings, same traditions

 

Under new management since December 2020, Sorsi e Morsi still holds the same values it had when it first started serving the people of St Kilda in 2013. At the heart of it all is good Italian food, great service and to provide a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Whether it’s a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary, a dinner out with friends or just to grab a coffee while shopping,

Sorsi e Morsi is the best Italian café restaurant in St Kilda.
