With a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, this small but well featured restaurant is a great change from the other pizza places on the great Lygon st strip. Friendly staff are a big part of a meal out and you will not be disappointed....More

Had dinner with the family on New Year's Eve. Although the restaurant was very busy, the food arrived promptly. The staff were wonderful, the food delicious and the prices reasonable. Would highly recommend.

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
