Lygon street has some very nice restaurants and sell some lovely food. The aroma from walking down the street is amazing. Just be aware that some of the proprietors can be pushy and may make rude remarks if you don't eat at their restaurant, but apart from that it is a great experience.

Lygon Street is full of Italian Restaurants, Gelato Shops and lots of malls. Lygon St was our favourite place to have dinner and the atmosphere was buzzing every night. The Italian restaurants are plentiful and all amazing.

Lygon Street is the place to eat in Melbourne. Most restaurants lining both sides of the street have a choice of indoor or outdoor "alfresco" dining so footpaths are extremely busy places. Footpath eating areas are heated which helps keep them comfortable in cooler weather. There's a distinct Italian influence with the cuisine but the restaurants cater with a wide... More

Had an enjoyable meal at Lygon Street. The number of Italian pizza restaurants, cafes and eateries was amazing. It was a taste of Europe. Parking was difficult. There were crowds of people going out for food and drinks. One of the highlights of Melbourne.

A bit of Italy in Melbourne - red and white checked tablecloths, tables and chairs on the pavement, smart and casual dining or a gelatto

I went to Lygon Street with my husband to enjoy the new year. We loved how much there was to see, eat & do. When you stay try to give yourself a few days due to the amount of great food available. Well worth the visit & I will be back :)

Not many people know this but Lygon Street has three parts to it. There is the restaurant strip just out of the city where there are so many restaurants to choose from. There is a strip further north with apartments and shops and then starts a full strip of housing with unique architecture. If you are into walking start your... More
