Beginning primarily as a deli, this little Brunswick Street eatery quickly turned into a Fitzroy institution (even expanding to the Smith Street Alimentari) with its rustic Mediterranean and Middle Eastern offerings. In addition to traditional deli classics made with the freshest ingredients, a wide selection of traditional homemade pastas and a locally famous arancini are all on offer.

Complete with an impressive wine selection and a tempting range of cakes and sweets, a trip to Alimentari is suitable for both a quick bite and a leisurely lunch.

With a focus on trattoria-style fare, owners Linda Jones and her partner chef Paul Jones (ex Benito’s and The European) know how busy this deli hotspot can get during the lunch rush, so they always make sure there are plenty of delicious options to take home as well.
