If you love Italian food especially, this street is a must do when In Melbourne. Heaps of Italian Restaurants don the sides of the street. This street also has lots of history, with the famous "Carlton Crew" making regular appearances during the Gangland War.

Looking for a variety of food then Lygon street is the place to go. Pretty much any cuisine but mainly Italian in the Carlton area.

Come for breakfast, come for lunch or dinner or come for coffee or ice cream, Lygon street has it all. Home to Jimmy Watson's wine bar, Readings bookstore (currently under refurbishment) and a selection of restaurants and bars. You wont be disappointed.

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
