Fantastic selection to choose from, fresh, clean and well presented, the food matches the overall ambiance of the place. I easily found something for my raw vegan taste-buds and loved it!

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
