UPDATE: JULY 28, 2020 — Carlton North's favourite gnocchi spot is still slinging pillowy balls of potato to-go — and via delivery on UberEats.

cp-line

Melbourne's hot gnocchi destination is tucked away in Carlton North. Good Gnocchi is slinging some top-notch takes on its namesake dish on Nicholson Street, which is manned by Owner James Eddy.

On the menu, you'll find a handful of $15 gnocchi options — think butter sage, walnut pesto, three-cheese gnocchi and a classic bolognese number. All can come extra cheesy on request, or paired with garlic bread for an extra few bucks. A gluten free pumpkin gnocchi is also up for grabs, as is vegan cashew cheese if you're sans dairy.

It's hot, fast and a solid antidote to a sad desk sandwich. And it's already proven a serious hit with local lunchbreakers looking for comfort food in the cooler (and warmer) months.

First launching as a hole-in-the-wall in Collingwood, Good Gnocchi's first lease ended in early December. It then opened a pop-up in the CBD, before launching a bigger restaurant in Carlton North.
