We were pressured by a spruiker to try this restaurant and assured we would "love the food " and free drinks were included. The veal parmigiana was very tough and the cheese was thick and rubbery. The salad was mediocre, the garlic bread was average...More

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

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
