MELBOURNE | Maria’s Pasta is a family run pasta shop in North Carlton that’s been making fresh pasta for over 50 years. The current owners took over the business in 1985 (conveniently their nonna was named Maria) and continue to hand roll and laminated their pasta in the traditional way to this day.

The store itself is small, with the majority of the space being taken up by the factory behind. Inside you’ll find several freezers full of pasta along with fridges containing sauces, antipasto, cheese and a few shelves of other Italian cooking products. The reason Maria’s freeze their pasta is to maintain the freshness for longer as fresh, unpasteurised pasta is generally no good after about five days. Snap freezing the pasta as soon as it’s made means you can stock up on a few things and still know they’ll taste fresh when you cook.

There are plenty of varieties of pasta on offer at Maria’s – think spaghetti, fettuccine, penne, ravioli, tortellini, gnocchi and more. The pasta is fantastic, and used by many restaurants around Melbourne. We highly recommend the beef lasagne, which is ready made with sauce and parmesan cheese, the veal and sage tortellini, and the chicken, sun dried tomato and ricotta filled agnolotti.
