Be part of the Pastore story.

On Friday November 1st, Chef Restaurateur ​Scott Pickett​ opened the doors to ​Pastore​: an Italian-inspired all-day dining venue welcoming guests for all occasions. Located at Hotel Chadstone, Pastore—the Italian word for ‘shepherd’—will honour the area’s heritage once rich with pasture and orchards.

From small plates to full tasting experiences, the menu by Pickett and Pastore Head Chef Mirco Speri draws focus on woodfire-fuelled cooking and handmade pasta; showcasing Italian cuisine through contemporary Australian references.

Scott 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 a chef and restaurant owner in Melbourne, it’s been a wild ride.
