Proudly owned and run by Italians for over 18 years, Il Tempo has the best Italian food in Melbourne. And we’re easy to find too, located in the beating heart of Melbourne – on the vibrant, colourful, non-stop Degraves Street.
You can sit back and relax on our cosy mezzanine, chat casually over pasta in the open downstairs, or watch the world go by on our ever-popular street side tables. with a slice of authentic Italian pizza in hand.
Il Tempo was born from the love of great food. Our menu has been perfected over years and years of searching through our Nonna’s recipe books, visiting all corners of Italia, trying all of the different styles of the special cuisine. The end result: bringing you something special straight from the heart of Italia.
We pride ourselves on our authentic stone baked pizzas, with a thin base and the wonderfully fluffy crusts that have a hint of sourdough taste. Our flour is even imported straight from home to give it that extra specialty; we believe that the best possible ingredients create the most wonderful food. We allow the dough to rest for 48 hours, the traditional way.
