Used a Groupon, for the price I don't blame them for serving small simple meals, those meals were in the menu too though. Lygon Street was busy and bustling and this place was empty. The waitresses were wearing platform shoes??

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
