Pretty Boy Italian Steakhouse
Level 1, 399 Little Lonsdale Street
Restaurants - Italian Category
Launched in 2019 in Melbourne CBD’s emerging food hub on Little Lonsdale Street, Pretty Boy Italian Steakhouse and Floyd’s bar capture the flavour of traditional Italian with an added American flare.
Lead by Executive Chef Michael Smith, former Head Chef of revered Melbourne institutions Tonka and Mamasita, the restaurant and bar celebrate the American influence on Italian food in New York City. The menu includes premium cured meats and thoughtful pickle pairings, handcrafted pasta made on-site daily, prime Australian cuts of meat aged in-house, and an eclectic spritz menu.
Taking inspiration from New York’s Little Italy, while drawing on his own experiences growing up with Italian and European friends in Melbourne’s outer North, Chef Smith’s menus at Pretty Boy Italian Steak House and Floyd’s pay homage to the tradition of sugo and salami making days from his local community, whilst utilising the very best local produce, and techniques learned in some of Melbourne’s best kitchens.
At Floyd’s, a diverse menu of cured meats include Quattro Stella Calabrese, Green Olive Mortadella and Wagyu Bresolla, paired with pickles specifically created to complement each cut. A selection of Italian cheese and Terrine rounds out the menu.
