Italian in Carlton & Brunswick

When you’ve had enough of pressed, siphoned, Slayer-machined, poured-over, filtered and plunged coffee, head here to one of Lygon St's original Italian cafe-restaurants. There’s the laughter and relaxed joie de vivre that only a well-established restaurant can offer. Great pastas and pizza, too. Also has the upmarket Tiamo 2 next door.
