Whenever we head into Melbourne we love having brunch at Brunetti. It is consistent in serving quick, delicious food and their cakes and pastries are fantastic. Not cheap but I am happy to pay for that Italian atmosphere.

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the

Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
