Too much too select from, which isn't a bad thing. You could come here all year and not try anything. Next time will try wood fired pizza. Smells delicious

When I entered this place, I was amazed with the different kinds of cakes and ice cream. The NutellaCheese cake was v nice. Plus the tea I had was good. A good place to chill with family and friends

Brunetti is a Melbourne institution. Fabulous fit-out, great cakes, huge and bustling. What a shame that the latte they serve is thin, flavorless, no crema and served way too hot. Melbourne is a coffee-obsessed city and I promise you can get a MUCH better latte...More

Surprisingly large cafe with an extensive menu. Lamb ragu, cannoli, you name it. Closes at 11PM on weekdays, so it's a nifty place to grab some desserts and coffee/hot chocolate after dinner. Nice, cozy ambience. A classic on Lygon St.

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
