Welcome to Pastore

Scott Pickett’s Pastore is located on the doorstep of Hotel Chadstone Melbourne MGallery by Sofitel.

Pastore, the Italian word for ‘shepherd’, honours the area’s heritage as a pasture and orchard.

From small plates to full tasting experiences, the menu by Scott Pickett presents Italian cuisine with Australian references, with a focus on woodfire-fuelled cooking and handmade pasta. Complementing the menu is a wine list of predominantly Italian varietals from local producers. An extensive cocktail menu combines Italian spirits and Australian botanicals, as well as signature Italian concoctions made with Australian aperitivos.

Pastore warmly welcomes you for all occasions.

Scott Pickett here…

I’d love to share my journey with you. My passion for great produce began early and it’s formed the foundation of what I’m about as a chef and restaurateur today. From my childhood in Kangarilla to my life-changing experiences in London, and now as Chef Restaurateur in Melbourne, it’s been a wild ride.
