A vibrant street, full of restaurants. It is a fun place to browse speciality food stores as well as eat. Difficult to decide which one to choose. Use a parking station as it is impossible to find street parking. We went for dinner, but in the past have had, brunch, lunch, coffee and cake or just a great ice cream.

It has been several years since I last visited Lygon Street. This is one of my favourite dining ‘strips’ in Melbourne. We dropped into Lygon Street on a Sunday night around 6pm. I immediately noticed that it has changed since my last visit with Brunettis now moved into the new Lygon Court Shopping Centre. This strip of Lygon Street in... More

I'm sure Lygon St is on any Melbourne itinerary.Famous for the Italian food,it doesn't disappoint.It's definitely worth doing some research if you plan to eat there,as it gets busy quite early,and several restaurants had a queue outside on Saturday night.Try and book ahead if you can,or go for an early dinner,unless you don't mind lining up.I went to Tiamo and...

A strip of mostly Italian restaurants lined next to each other, it's lovely to have a good catchup meal with friends , romantic dinner, or family gathering. Always busy particularly during the weekends!

Lygon Street was always Melbourne's "Little Italy", today its more a "little multicultural" then little Italy. Its always busy on the weekends, especially in summer, so its definitely worth a visit. Best suggestion - have your meal at a restaurant and have dessert at the ice-cream or cake shops!! That way you can enjoy everything Lygon Street has to offer!!!

Looking for affordable and delicious food, look no further. On one side of the strip, great affordable restaurants, on the other side, more white table cloth restaurants. Tried both sides and all great.

This is a great place to go for good Italian. If you don't like people hassling you in the street to come to their restaurant don't go there. A great atmosphere and loads of fun
