Lygon Street has so many awesome Italian restaurants to choose from. From breakfast until the wee hours of the evening, you can enjoy an abundance of genuine Itallian fare with all the trimmings.

city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
