Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the

the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who

gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.

You would have to ask the owner when you contact him, I do think there is limited car parking available out the back but every time I have visited I haven't had a car so not quite sure, sorry I can't be any more help there.
