“Food!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

You can always get a good meal somewhere here. (Italian of course)
The atmosphere is excellent, and the smells wafting out from the cafes and restaurants are wonderful.

“Love it”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I have spent much time wandering up and down Lygon st over the last 20 or so years. It has changed quite a bit but still retains the cafe lifestyle feel. There is such a wonderful range of restaurants to choose from and they cater for all tastes and budgets. Great place to eat, sit or walk.

“full of cigarette butts and noisy cars/bikes”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Irrespective of where you eat on Lygon Street (I found all places to be very nice), I couldn't enjoy it because of car/bike hoons causing noise and general mayhem for anyone crossing Lygon Street after 8pm.

Plus the place is littered with cigarette butts - if the customers aren't smoking and throwing their butts on the ground around the tables then it's the waiters who are doing it. Don't bring children if you want to eat outside (why can't customers go 1 hour without smoking?).

Lygon Street - been there, done that, won't be back.

Go the movies at the Nova Cinema, explore the shops and then eat at one of the wonderful Italian eateries. Great day out.

“Restorante Italiono Galore”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Fabulous restaurants, little old shops - bookstores, bakeries etc, with a lovely Italian atmosphere. Very well known restaurants/cafes from pizza to top end repasts. Magnifico.
