Sorsi e Morsi
A pasta-heavy taste of Italian cafe culture in Melbourne’s inner south.
Step inside Sorsi e Morsi and, despite the close proximity to St Kilda Botanic Gardens, you can be forgiven for feeling like you're on the other side of the world. The St Kilda spot aims to transport your tastebuds to the Mediterranean thanks to its pasta-heavy menu; however, it also boasts a rustic look and atmosphere that brings a firm taste of Italian cafe culture in Melbourne's inner south.
Open for breakfast and lunch — and pairing those midday meals with $10 spritzes on Sunday — Sorsi e Morsi is a carb lover's dream. Choose a plate of gnocchi either pan-fried with mushrooms, spinach, pine nuts and mascarpone, or served with tomato sugo and fior di latte. Nonna's special lasagne, five types of paninis and spaghetti with your choice of prawns or clams also stand out.
From the brekkie lineup, the pork hash with poached eggs, broccolini and 'nduja hollandaise has become the venue's signature early-in-the-day dish for a reason. And, even better: Sorsi e Morsi does takeaway, too.
