    Best homemade pasta in Carlton. The best tiramisu of all times. Great place. Must try if you are looking for traditional Italian pasta.????????

    I am a traditional Lygon Street guy when it comes to Italian food so last night was a pleasant change.

    Was invited to the Olive Jar last night by friends who had stumbled across it recently and liked it.

    The Olive Jar was much more like going to a dinner party at an Italian friends house than just going for dinner at a restaurant.

    From the moment I arrived the waitress Theresa (hope I've got that right) was warm and friendly and I immediately felt at 'home'. The owner Giovanni was more like a host to his 'guests' (the customers) and wandered around having little chats here and there. Later he entertained his guests with his singing to big band backing tracks and that was also very entertaining. He sings well doing Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Elvis songs and the entertainment is just long enough to be enjoyable but not intrusive to a good night out.

    The food was also first class. Shared Antipasto entree, then various pizza and pasta dishes followed by dessert. All generous helpings, well cooked in the Italian home cooking style and the serving ideas added to the theme (the pasta came out in the frypan it had been cooked in and placed in front of the guest as the serving dish).

    All in all a great night out, wonderful hosts and food. Will be going back there for sure. 5 stars

    This little piece of Italian magic has been in the same family hands since 1960. Fantastic home made and hand cut pasta. Scrumptious pizza, home made organic wine and beautiful Limon Cello ......but join the owner in singing Elvis, Frankie and other Italian classics. It's as if you've joined their family , and yes he knows Sophia Loren. Not to be missed.

    This place you have to try. It’s such an amazing Italian restaurant. It’s tucked away so it’s never really busy and really great decor inside. Handmade pasta and it’s always been amazing. Great taste. Great flavours and really fresh. They have the pasta drying in the window. Would highly recommend this place!!

Review: The Olive Jar and Capitano in Melbourne, Australia

The Olive Jar is a wonderful, unadulterated example of historical Carlton and Italy as seen through the lens of Australia. Like Italian-Americans, Italian-Australians have their own dishes and sayings and way of life, one that's profoundly reverential of the old country and grateful for the bounty of this country.

The Olive Jar

The very first Olympians won wreaths of olive leaves for their victories. Modern-day Olympians, however, win medals. The first Olympic Games in Athens in 1896 awarded silver medals to first place (because silver was more valuable than gold at the time) and copper medals to second place.
