When I reached and saw patrons with 1 pizza each, I was shocked. But after I have tasted it, I know why it could be finished - simply delicious! The crust was so thin and the buffalo cheese was so tasty! We ordered Solumi Board, Rucola Salad, Magherita Pizza, Pizza Speck, Pizza 2002, Pizza Porcini, Calzone and Pizza Pomodoro -... More

The pizza here is BRILLIANT and there are no peanuts on the menu, so I can eat here without worrying about my allergy. What a relief! Also, despite how busy they are, the staff are friendly and will try to get you seated as quickly as possible.

Just off Lygon St is Thai fabulous pizza restaurant. We arrived at 6:30 and by 7pm they were queuing to get a table, a very good sign we had made a good choice. We had an outside table on a balmy Spring evening. The staff were friendly and helpful in suggesting toppings and appropriate wines to match. We asked for... More

By far the best pizza I've ever had in Melbourne. It's obvious right now why they are always fully booked but one thing for sure it's definitely worth the wait. My 2nd visit here, planning for my 3rd soon.

If you love pizza, you just can't miss this place. The cheese platter is out of the world. Pizza choices, breads and olive oil they serve is of top quality and are a treat to the taste buds. Topped with simple and high quality service, this pizzeria is certainly one of my favorites. Allow half an waiting period of weekend... More

you cannot book this place so make sure you allow some potential waiting time before you get a table. we ordered 2 sharing platters to start, one was a mix of hams, cheese, and various bites, this was pretty good, in particular the hams. the other one was their special 3 mozzarellas platter, which i thought was nothing that special...

One street away from Lygon Street and a bit further than we planned to walk with the kids but well worth it! Full inside, busy outside- and that was early on a Wednesday evening. Quick, friendly service, pizzas were out in no time. Quality of the bases and toppings is superb - right up there with the best we've had... More

Love the food at D.O.C Pizza. Even my daughter who generally doesn't like pizza loves the food so much here that she went back to DOC two nights in a row. The pizza bases are to die for, fantastic mozzarella cheese & tomato base. The basic Pizza DOC is our favourite & Pizza Speck is also good. We always make... 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.
