    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 neighbourhood 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.
