Nice restaurant strip of mainly Italian places but now a few others creeping in. Safe to walk along at night. Always busy and cheerful. You can dine in one of the places then pick,up a gelato at another to lick while strolling towards the city centre or train station.

Login Street has many restaurants and bars, many of them are Italian restaurants and has great atmosphere. If you love nice food and coffee then Lygon Street is for you.

Your best shot at the Italian foodie scene in Melbourne. The rows of old buildings are pretty by themselves but add to that pizza and spaghetti restaurants. Yum!

Caught the free city circle tram to Lygon Street & enjoyed walking through this interesting part of Melbourne. There are lots of cafes, bars & restaurants to choose from. There are also some lovely parks to explore, too.

Lots of great places to eat, many on an Italian theme, but there are others. You'll be spoilt for choice. We had a great time and the ice cream shop was a big hit with the kids

Now you know why Melbourne is the most liveable city in the world? We have the famous Lygon St for the Italians, Oakleigh for the Greeks, Footscray, Victoria St and Springvale for the Vietnamese food

Not as busy as it used to be. Nice strip of shops and eateries. We took a nice stroll in the shops and stopped for a coffee and cake at brunettis. Lovely.
