Good Gnocchi

A CBD spot serving hot trays of gnocchi for lunch and dinner.

Melbourne's hot gnocchi destination is tucked away in a CBD arcade. Good Gnocchi is slinging some top-notch takes on its namesake dish in Collins Street's Hub Arcade space, which is not much more than a kitchen and 20 seats, 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 four bucks. A gluten-free pumpkin gnocchi is also up for grabs, as is an Italian-inspired banh mi loaded with bolognese ($10).

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. If you're heading in after work, we suggest you go on Thursday and make the most of the $15 wine and gnocchi deal

First launching as a hole-in-the-wall in Collingwood, Good Gnocchi's first lease ended in early December. But inner north Melburnians need fear not: a Carlton North store, at 797 Nicholson Street, is set to open soon. We'll keep you updated on that.
