Spruiker talked us into having lunch there. Offered free wine but not being drinkers. Food was nice , my pizza was great. Very friendly service though , although weren't quite as friendly once lunch was ordered. Reasonably priced

A mother/son trip to Melbourne to see "Book of Mormon" isn't complete without authentic Italian in Lygon street. We didn't have a reservation as I was hoping to show Patrick the colourful 'spruiking" to get you in the door. I notice here that some reviewers...More

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.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
