It can be a bit daunting running the gauntlet down Lygon Street - they all look busy (=good?) and the street-based hosts equally enthusiastic about their respective restaurants. For no good reason (beyond the teenager's excitement at the promise of a free chocolate dessert pizza)...More

Clouds of fluffy gnocchi .....a creamy bacony cabonara fettuccine.... a scaloppine that was as it should be. Delicious food combined with charismatic and charming staff. We sat in front of the pizza bar and spent a lot of time mesmerised by the pizza making skills....More

I was expecting more. Pretty average pizza. Just more of the same. The dough was heavy and the tomato sauce tasted like a passata straight from the jar.

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

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
