Wonderful wood fired pizza. Plenty of topping on a super crispy base. Restaurant was very full, so expect a wait of you don't book. Definitely worth a stop if you are in Melbourne.

Warm, friendly, & inviting. The food was simply brilliant......variety, flavoursome, and filling. The staff were very accommodating and the host was such an entertaining character. The guy should actually have his own comedy show!!! If you don't go to this place for dinner........YOU ARE MISSING OUT!!! Regards, the folks from Wollongong!!!

Came back a year later and loved it again. The restaurant was absolutely packed with several tour buses in. However our meal was timely, fresh and very tasty. Was a show in itself seeing the staff do their thing for such a busy night. Thank you again

I urge anyone who goes to Melbourne to visit this restaurant! I was on a long weekend away with my best friend and got it as a random suggestion from my sister and I'm so glad we went! It's a small quaint style restaurant nestled in between many other boutique style coffee shops and eateries. The food was amazing, the... More

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighborhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
