Treated my family with respect. Lovely food. Entertaining waiter. The old bloke at the front obviously has a good wife😂

Charming spot for a fabulous seafood linguini. Our party of 6 had a variety of meals and they were all fantastic. Not expensive and the service was outstanding.

Lygon Street provides a challenge woth so many nice looking places to eat, and with many special offers being made. We selected here as it was the last we inspected (was it fatigue?) due to the menu, the great effort at spruiking (friendly and interesting) and the special offer (which was honoured to the letter). We sat outside on a... More

Greeted at the door, very inviting staff and offers. Kilpatrick Oysters were to die for, delicious! Chicken Pizza and chicken parmy were delish also. Recommended wine by staff was also so easy to drink! Will definitely be coming back again! Good job guys!😊😊

Lygon Street is renowned for being the to-go place for Italian food. We were spoilt for choice when we entered the street as every shop was bustling with activity. We decided to explore a little more before deciding which restaurant to go to as we wanted a more authentic experience. Glad we did! We chanced upon Alpino Restaurant, a cosy... More

Great food, great service. Owner introduced his family. Was like being a family guest. The fresh pasta was good but I loved the tomato sauce that was like warm crushed tomatoes.

We were enticed into the restaurant by George with the promise of a free drink and great food. The food was excellent with entree and mains portions being substantial. Service was excellent, the waiter was very friendly. He informed us that the restaurant was undergoing a bit of a revamp with new paint and furniture. We would defiinitely return for... More

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighbourhood Profile
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 they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
