We have eaten lunch and shopped often at the Pantry. Last night we threw a pizza party for 25. The pizza is the best I have eaten in Oz--.crisp thin bread with tasty homemade toppings. Excellent starters of stuffed zuchinni and desert of lemon cake. Red wine by the caraffe is excellent. The service was efficient, attentive and simpatico and... More

Delighted to find this place while on holidays from Melbourne. The husband considers himself a pizza connoisseur and there wasn't one criticism of this delicious thin crust, true Italian style pizza: flavoursome base with minimal and very fresh toppings. The pasta was also very fresh and tasty. Limited menu, but great quality and friendly service from wait staff and the... More

My husband and I went for a light meal. A young lady handed us two grotty looking printed menus. We decided to just have coffee and cake as menu looked limited. We received our coffees and my husband received his cake. We waited and waited for the second cake, listened to staff shouting to other staff members as to what... More

Visited New Year's Eve for lunch, arrived to a full restaurant inside , sat outdoors in a temporary outdoor closed in area where it was very warm. Staff did all they could to ensure we were comfortable with shade umbrellas and ice. The meals were lovely and a great size, great to fill up three hungry teenage boys. The panacotta... More

The Italian Pantry has now moved to the corner of Melville and Murray Sts.And a good move it is! The venue now uses an old sandstone house and a marquee adjacent to the building. The delicatessen still offers as diverse and excellent as always, but the atmosphere for food, coffee and wine is tops - there is even a small... More

Good example of a food venue that shows a lot of potential but falls flat because the front of house staff are not doing their mates in the kitchen any favours. We went as a couple for a snack and ordered 2 x coffees and a panini to share. They were not overley busy but how can you forget to... More

Just a little out of the city centre, which makes parking easy, the Italian Pantry offers a comfortable environment and good coffee. This was my first time here, and I didn't pay attention to any food options available as I was just meeting a friend for a quick coffee.

We recently called into the new Murray St location in Hobart with high hopes, as Hobart does need a good Italian deli! The actual deli and pantry were inviting and well stocked with lovely cheeses, wines, pasta and assorted treats. Our lunch in the cafe however, was a bit disappointing. We both ordered a pasta main, house wine ( red)... More
