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.
Plenty of resturants however, we chose to research and choose a resturant before we arrived based on reviews on trip advisor and wise choice rather than being hassled when trying to choose. Lovely to do a wonder along the strip after a meal. Only down side no tram on the street and you have to walk a long block to...
It is a useful little park close to Lygon Street cafes and take away restaurants. There are shady and sunny seats, some public toilets, a fountain, bandstand, and some grass under large old trees. It is free in an area that can cost you money.
This is not a large venue but has a good range of machines. The staff are polite and efficient plus friendly. Many patrons seem to be regulars. The outside smoking area does not allow smoke to waft into the venue - so all happy. Clean and tidy. Over the last month or so we have visited once a week or...
Considered as a new player in the Gelato business, Pidapipó firstly opened in Carlton, Melbourne (2014).
Owned by Lisa Valmorbida who studied in Italy from the world's best Gelato university in the world, Carpigiani gelato university.
Melbournians are lucky enough to taste the aunthentic Italian gelato recipe brought by Lisa.
It's a small gelato shop but always full of people...
Love going to this restaurant. The owners are lovely people who are always very welcoming. The food is absolutely amazing. I love the food Everyone loved there food. Try the dolce rosso a beautiful red wine. We visit Melbourne once a year and this is a must every time we visit. The best restaurant in lygon street if not Melbourne.
Visit this place for second time and I found it even better. They changed the menu and it is impressive in terms of quality.
I enjoyed a wonderful warm Calamari salad as appetiser followed by an amazing chicken roll on a mushroom purée.
Don’t miss to try their stunning homemade warm apple strudel, unbelievable!!!
"Making of homemade pasta in the window drew us in- not disappointed! Bellissimo!"

WE were fascinated by the making of the handmade pasta being demonstrated in the window by the chef. We had to wait for a table, but very much worth it.(You can eat on tables outside or inside- so if in a wheelchair the outside tables are perfect on a nice night) The food was quintessential Italian. We all had the...
The Carlton Quest on Finlay apartments are very conveniently located and are good value for money. It's easy to get into the centre of Melbourne and there are lots of dining options to choose from within a few minutes walk. The staff are very helpful.
This is our go-to hotel for a few days in Melbourne. Clean, comfy and right around the corner fromLygon Street. Easy walk into the centre of the city, or to Brunswick Street and the tram for further afield is at the end of the University line, about six minutes walk away. There is an adjacent, undercover, locked garage right next...
Recently stayed a weekend at Lygon Lodge. Was great. Clean and tidy, well set out. Perfect location for us. Would definitely stay here again. Remember the hot water service takes a while to reach the shower so have some patience and don’t panic!!!! 🤗
I know I've only given it an average rating but I didn't see anything amazing about the apartment but then I also didn't see anything to complain about either. Everything worked, it was spacious, all good. But don't underestimate the location. I've never seen so many restaurants! The night life was buzzing with activity and even when I was wandering...
