If I pay over $300 for four people, I expect to walk away satisfied & happy. This restaurant however left us New South Welshmen anything but. There are far better (& cheaper) places to eat along this renowned street, choose one of them!!

We were cajoled into coming into this restaurant off the street by "Tono" offering a 20% discount - which I had to ask for at the end. The menu was like a flash-back to the 1980's - very ordinary and inauthentic "italian". Service was terrible...More

Like so many other reviewers we were offered a 20% discount on the street by an elderly Italian grandpa who virtually physically pushed us through the door. "The Specials" were slapped in front of us on a tired piece of A4 paper (covered in plastic)...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
