Lygon Street used to be a mecca in my student days, giving a sense of being rather sophisticated sipping cappuccino or eating a pizza instead of standard student cafe pies-and-peas. Nowadays the restaurant section, with the evengin spruikers, is just one second rate and pricey...More

Traditional Italian centre of Melbourne famous for its food. Over the last number of years the Italian flavour has been augmented by other cuisines, so its not just Italian fare any more. Lots to do with must visit venues including Brunetti and Jimmy Watson's Wine...More

Lygon Street consists of bustling crowds and an overload of tables and chairs cramming the sidewalks. Plumes of cigarette smoke waft across your path and the aroma of garlic and pastries fill your nostrils. The array of cakes on display at Brunetti's are a feast...More

This is the best place to go for good Italian food in Melbourne. There are also Greek and various other restaurants but the Italians rule. There are touts who try go get you into particular restaurants and they are annoying but I specifically ignore restaurants...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
