Tiamo is in the Italian district on Lygon Street. We picked it randomly for lunch and had a great meal. Service was prompt and friendly and we didn't feel rushed. The prices were reasonable and the portions were generous. All in all, it was a...More

This is good food. But thats all I can say. Nothing special. The menu is good and more creative than other places. They have a long specials menu. Good for vegetarians. Good service - although my food came out about 5-10minutes after everyone elses. The...More

I ordered the warm chicken salad ($22) which consisted of deep fried chicken. If I'd wanted deep fried chicken, I would have gone to Kentucky Fried, not a well-regarded restaurant in a tourist area. The gnocchi was tasteless and inedible. Others happy with their pizza,...More

Tiamo: famous for coffee - and that's why many people go there: just for coffee - and minestrone, and other traditional Italian favourites: served like they would be served in Italy, such as fagioli soup, lasagne, eggplant parmigiana, often osso bucco, plus daily specials, each...More

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
