I came here with a group of work friends as we were in town for a conference, and I was the only one who was familiar with the area. We walked past several empty restaurants, to find Papa Gino's packed with people. A short wait...More

I often visit Papa Gino's as it is the one place I know where I can have a good meal and not be disappointed. The prices are reasonable, the sizing is good but most importantly the food regardless of whether it is pasta or pizza...More

Friendly service and good food. Food came out quickly and portions were huge! Tables were very squishy and there wasn't much room to move around.

Usually select same pizzas from menu because we know they will be just as we want. We have always been very happy with the friendly service. Always a busy place, good indication of its popularity.

This warm pizza restaurant is in the heart of Lygon St and is excellent value for money. We went out for a family night and shared three pizzas between 6, including drinks and dessert this did not break the bank. There are a wide range...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
