We come here usually a few times a year and always enjoy stocking up on some food items from some of the nice delicatessens. Bottega Tasca is a destination in itself if you like Italian wine. Brunetti's is a must if you like your Italian cookies and cakes. Most of the restaurants have ok food and good atmosphere and are... More

I only visited this area once and it was brief. It did seem like an interesting place to visit. Many restaurants and coffee shops. Not sure about the quality and prices of the food. The one place I tried was a bit expensive and not outstanding. Still an interesting area.

Went to Lygon st with my partner to celebrate our 4 year anniversary. we had never been before and as soon as you step onto the corner you can smell it. The tomato, cheese, herbs and lemon. You can hear knives and forks, laughter and the sound of glasses meeting each other in celebration, or congratulations. You see the long... More

Restaurant touts will try to entice you inside their establishment. remember that once you engage with them you are theirs. Go with the flow as it's all in good fun and the food and experience can be... More

We decided to try it out after years since my first visit. As before, every place had a spruiker to encourage you to eat at their place. Many had great offers like 20% of the total listed price bill! As it was a warm November day and evening, it was great to check out each offer and then decide. We... More
