Busiest restaurant in Lygon Street on a Tuesday night and it's easy to see why, fresh tasty food, fast efficient service, friendly staff and reasonable prices.

Friendly service and good food. Food came out quickly and portions were huge! Tables were very squishy and there wasn't much room to move around.

Usually select same pizzas from menu because we know they will be just as we want. We have always been very happy with the friendly service. Always a busy place, good indication of its popularity.

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
