Good food, friendly staff and rustic vibes bring locals back
What once was a corner milk bar is now a stylish, renovated pasta and wine bar in Brunswick West. This intimate Italian restaurant with a regular changing menu, serves traditional Italian dishes with seasonal fresh produce.

Upon entering Cirelli & Co, be welcomed by two wooden carved statues. The exposed brick interior gives warmth and intimacy to the front seated area. Industrial lights and wooden textures are appealing features.

Cirelli & Co Wine
Cirelli & Co offer something for everyone. Not that hungry? Why not try "something small" or "something to share". Homemade arancini, or a delectable cheese board with schiacciata, a Southern Italian homemade style pizza bread. Calzone with tomato sauce, basil and oozing mozzarella is another speciality.
Classic pasta dishes of casarecce, orecchiette, and ravioli are great for those cold winter evenings. Rich tomato or creamy white sauces bathe the different varieties of pasta at Cirelli & Co, and gluten free pasta is available as well. There are also specials each night, displayed on the large blackboard in the restaurant and promoted on Cirelli & Co's social media pages.
