Look, the icecream is decent enough, but I honestly don't understand why this place has a queue a mile long even on freezing cold nights. There are some interesting flavours but not a huge number to choose from, and nothing fancy in the combinations. There's...More

The ice cream is good, but I wouldn't say it is worth the hype or the massive queues that develop due to extended time of staff not serving anyone. There are better places.

Love this place so much! Been so many times and it’s consistently good! The salted caramel is amazing and you can get Nutella on top too!

Simply the best ice-cream I’ve ever had. We get takeaway. Amazing. Do yourself a favour. Hazelnut is great. As is Banana.

The gelati here is the best. Reminiscent of the real stuff you find in Italy. Try it. You won’t regret it.

We have just come back from Italy and honestly Pidapipo’s icecreams are just as good if not better! Fresh ingredients, seasonal fruit flavours and great service. A must if visiting Lygon Street.

Pidapipo is a must for gelati lovers. Instantly transported to Italy the minute one walks through the door, the gelati is fresh, fresh, fresh. Seasonal flavours mean regular trips, but the best, baccio with hot nutella dribbled over the top, is always on the menu!

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

Take tram 1 or 8 to Carlton. Or take the tram to Melbourne Uni and walk up to Lygon St.
