We had a 3 type pasta plate, between the two of us we couldn't finish it! So much pasta, so delightful, so fresh! Great service, we really enjoyed the atmosphere, in a busy restaurant, there was still the individual service, more than expected! Highly recommend...More

The pizza was really nice. The Ferrari memorabilia was great and added to the atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back. It looks like it is a popular cafe in Lygon Street with inside and outside dining available.

The best Arrabbiata sauce on penne pasta I have ever had. Comes from secret family recipes owners’ grandmother made. They will not part with them no matter what you offer. House wine by carafe was cheap and good. Great service great prices.

Walking around this particular part of Melbourne you are spoilt for choice if you like Italian food. We wondered for a while and then decided on Corretto's and what a brilliant choice. The food was excellent and my steak was possibly one of the best...More

I often come here the night before a triathlon to carbo load or if I have to entertain a large group as it's excellent value for money. I brought a group of 11 here after a conference and we managed to have pasta and pizza...More

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
