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

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.

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!
