Brunetti is a beautiful and vivid Italian cafe in the heart of Melbourne. Located within City Square, it is well-placed for those who are either just dropping in for breakfast or lunch - as well as those that make it a destination in itself for a trip into the CBD.
Having made its name famous in Carlton, this version of Brunetti brings the same quality to their menu as they do in the great Italian quarter of Melbourne. What's more, it is located in a beautifully designed building with sharp modern decor and a long concrete table outside, offering the chance to sit among friends and alongside fellow Melburnians, delivering a very welcome and inviting 'beer garden-esque' feel to this elegant and vivid locale.
Yet, great as the surroundings are, the menu is also crucial. On this, Brunetti delivers. Whether it is bruschetta to start with, a wood-fired pizza as a main, or a gelato to finish.There is also great coffee and negroni cocktails peppered throughout the meal. Brunetti is a Melbourne institution well worth experiencing. And, doing so in such a great location as City Square, with chance to look upon all the happenings and bustle of Swanston St day or night, has the promise of turning an already stellar experience into an absolute standout.
