“Unique Italian precinct of Melbourne”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

The general area is famous for its numerous Italian restaurants, but the whole walking experience is worth a visit. There are numerous small boutiques, cafés and bars, lots of cake shops, and generally some quite unique experiences as a tourist. Definitely worth a visit, especially late in the day when there is quite a buzz with people and activity. Be selective with the Italian restaurants....some all serve the same stuff, so check trip advisor before you decide!

“Culinary street”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Lygon street is definitely a street for culinary purposes, especially if your an Italian food lover...
Me and a friend had lunch one day in late summer, around February, and the atmosphere was just incredible, the street wasn't so crowded, so you can enjoy eating outdoor, the food was nice and the portion was considerably generous, but you really gotta pick the place you're eating, since the price can go from affordable to fine dining rate.

I guess even if you're not an Italian food lover, visiting Lygon could be a nice consideration.

“Buzzing restaurant atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Love the atmosphere of Lygon Street. Especially in Winter! All the Italian restaurants, people trying to pull you into their venue, great Italiano aromas, outdoor dining options. There's also a rich AFL culture among this street with a lot of former footballers owning restaurants. My favourite is DiMattina's. Make sure you check-out Lygon Street if you're a fan of Italian food like myself!

“Great place for Italian food”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

One of the most iconic places in Melbourne for some great Italian food.
There are very wide range of restaurants to choose from. Prices vary too, from pizzeria to fine dining.
You can also go there for afternoon tea and desserts. A great place to visit. Recommend.
