Absolutely loved this place! Very busy but service is great, food is delicious and staff are all Italian and provide a truly authentic feel. Be sure to order the white chocolate pizza but do not share (order one to yourself) ;-)

This was recommended to us by the Airbnb host we had and it was amazing! In the Italian quarter of Melbourne but off the main strip, this place was packed with locals. Best pizza we've had! Salad was super fresh and delicious and the wine was great. Ditch the over priced stuff on Lygon Street and make this a priority!

Had a meal there before a movie . Crowded on a Monday night - singles, couples and families. Great service - checking back- how's your food, your drink? 3 in party all had different pizza. Quickly made and served.

Having heard amazing things about this place we went for pizza one evening and were not disappointed. It's authentically Italian food service by Italian people. Would go again.

The pizza was amazing but I can't say much for service. We came in the aftenoon in between the lunch/dinner rush. There were 3 of us, the place was not busy at all and yet we were sat at a 2-person table instead of a 4-person table. Our plates were hanging off the table due to lack of space for... More

This place had been recommended to me by two different people and I came here with my Italian cousins for lunch. It was packed but we only had to wait for about 4 minutes.The maitre'd was rude and arrogant (typical Southern Italian no doubt) as we're from the North and he obviously had no idea we were Italian. He tried... More

Like a lot of places in Melbourne you can't book here, but the staff are very efficient and do a good job of making sure you aren't waiting long. The pizza is really good, and the atmosphere of the place is great, would definitely recommend venturing outside the CBD to try this place!

I went there to have a dinner with friends, we were in more than 20 people and we got a set menu for 42$ no drinks included. I mean, very big group and good recessed for the restaurant. Some of us had a specific request like gluten free and vegan options. A waiter started to criticize about the choice to... More

My wife, two daughters and I went to this restaurant with another couple and their 8-year old daughter and found it to be really interesting! The décor is traditional café with wooden floorboards so it can get noisy. We arrived at 7pm and were seated upstairs so it was quieter since we were the only table – but when we... More

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.
