1. Pizzas are fresh & good. Not awesome or mind blowing but good. 2. Service is super lack luster. It is not just that staff are Italian and can't speak good English- it is just they can't be bothered. The food is not worth their unpleasantness. Better choices out there. 3. Bored-looking waitress asked if we would like to opt... More

one of the best pizza ever had!! you have to like thin crunchy base and simple but tasty ingredients, the buffalo mozzarella was amazing, good wine selection and good description of the Italian region origin. All chefs and most of the staff are Italian. A must of Lygon

Went here for lunch and found it to be a really authentic Italian pizza restaurant. All authentic Italian cuisine at a reasonable price

Stopped here for lunch on a day I was exploring Melbourne. Had a very tasty bowl of pasta with tomato sauce, and loved that it came with a chunk of bred to mop everything up with too. Service a little muddled as you order at the bar, but unsure about whether you need to be seated or not - this... More

Best pizza in Melbourne is at D. O. C. Absolutely fresh and oozing with flavors of San Marzano tomatoes and the best Goat mozzarella cheese. The pizza is made on order and the base is super thin and amazingly tasty. Their salads and Tiramisu is also must haves. Get in early to beat the rush but don't miss this place... More

We travelled all the way from Belgrave to go to this Pizza Bar after riding on the Puffing Billy Great food and the service was really friendly and positive. Give you a hint. It does get cold & windy in Melbourne so DONT sit just inside the door. If you do watch the food go cold quickly

Not the best pizza in Melbourne but still very good. Family visit around 5ish on a Saturday and the place was buzzing, service good, they clearly want to turn the tables around quickly as they are so popular, can recommend you have your dessert at Brunetti's nearby, great cakes. Check their reviews on TripAdvisor.

When you looking for a "real' pizza this is the place to go, no sizes no sharing.👍 And so my rating goes up to 5 star. I came here for it. You can taste the difference with tomato SanMarzano and ingredients are fresh. Service is fast and friendly, it feels like you are in Italy. We went Sunday night, the... More

Went with a party of 8 for an evening out but what was a dinner of above average food was completely let down by the most shocking service. We ordered multiple meat and mozzarella platters, pizzas and salads for sharing and when all orders apart from one salad had arrived, we enquired with the waiter if it was on the... More

Neighbourhood 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 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 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.
