If you are looking for a quiet intimate dinning experience on Lygon Street then Svago ticks all the boxes. Travelling from Perth and arriving on Valentine's Day meant I had to ensure I booked somewhere special and not to far away from our accommodation. Svago...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
