Get Sauced in St Kilda
Newly open on Fitzroy St, Sauced Pasta Bar has taken up residence on the ground floor of the Tolarno Hotel. The latest to open in the Melbourne area, Sauced St kilda is serving up fresh pasta and more fresh as you order it.

Perfect for those who are fussy, Sauced allows you to choose your pasta style, choose your sauce from a huge variety of options, add any extras and get exactly what you want.

Those keen on eating healthy can also enjoy veggies 'pasta' where the pasta is replaced with veggies like zucchini, sweet potato, they even do cauliflower rice! And if you're wanting gluten free pasta, you won't miss out either.

We tried the 4P's sauce made of pumpkin puree, pinenuts, Persian feta and basil pesto added in a few olives and mixed it up with zuchinni pasta for this delicious dish (below):

We also tried The New Napoli served with spicy salami, fresh chilli and Napoli sauce, also served on zucchini pasta - win! They also offer wines, beer and cider by the glass to perfectly match with your meal.

Vegetarians will have plenty of options including the Spicy Lentil Bolognese, made meat free and there's even a kids or 'Bambino' menu too. Sauced also offers a variety of salads, antipasto and sweets such as semifreddo and Nutella Ravioli served with ice cream (and while we didn't get to try that one, it's one we're coming back for!)

The cafe itself is also a point of interest for art lovers as the inside is almost completely covered by murals painted by famous Melbourne artist Mirka Mora. The murals were fully restored in 2007 and ceate a unique element to Sauced.

The murals are also a bit of a talking point as they certainly leave much to discover. Even our server has cheekily deemed them the "Sistine Chapel of St Kilda." They're certainly worth having a look at.

Sauced is an ideal option for a great meal that's casual but not fast-food. It's fresh and the atmosphere is incredibly welcoming.
