Guy Grossi shares all your favourite classic Italian recipes from Melbourne’s beloved institution, the Cellar Bar.

The Cellar Bar, a Melbourne institution since the 1950s, has always been synonymous with Italian dining. The place where many had their first mouthful of spaghetti bolognese, it’s long been the meeting point for Melbourne society and one of the reasons dining out has woven itself into the fabric of this wonderful city.

The Cellar Bar is a place that is always the same in the best kind of way. It’s a place where you can go for a comforting favourite dish or something new. You can go anytime, eat anything. There are no rules and everybody is welcome. The produce is always the best, made with love by some of the city’s finest chefs. Its dark, warm and burnished interior is cosy and relaxed.

As Guy says, ‘The aim of the food is not to just have you leave feeling full, but it’s also to have you feel fulfilled.’ Now you can take this feeling home and nourish your friends and family with 80 simple, delicious, authentic Italian recipes.
