We came here when looking for another restaurant in Carlton that was sadly closed for the day, but this ended up being a pleasant surprise! We had never been to a French restaurant before, and, while I was expecting great food, I was also expecting...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
