Not in Melbourne?


Specialising in simple Italian cuisine that’s value for money, this Melbourne favourite is located in the heart of cosmopolitan St Kilda.


With a combination of Italian chefs and wait staff, Termini strives to capture the true essence of Italian dining. Situated in a building some 150 years old, Termini's dining room often booms with merry noise, as authentic an Italian atmosphere as you might find in the cosmopolitan St Kilda, while patrons dine on simple Italian fare that's easy on the purse strings.

At lunch time $22 gets you two courses and a glass of wine, with choices like the zuppa del giorno (soup of the day) to start and a main of cotoletta di pollo con rucola (crumbed chicken breast, fried and served with lemon and dressed rocket). From the main menu start with the bruschetta, or grigliati con rucola e radicchio (grilled baby calamari served on a salad of radicchio and rocket with salsa verde). Follow with the risotto del giorno or a main of malfatti allo zafferano con carciofi brasati and pangrattato (saffron and parsley malfatti with braised globe artichokes and golden breadcrumbs). Finish with the pannacotta con frutta di bosco (vanilla pannacotta served with a mixed berry compote). The concise and reasonably priced wine list boasts varieties from regional Italy among its local contenders.
