    Expert Italian-culture guide

Lygon Street is known as Melbourne’s ‘Little Italy’, home to the original Italian migrants and their families for generations. It’s where Melbourne coffee, pizza and pasta culture began and still thrives today. It holds its old-school charm while ever-changing and adapting to Melbourne’s modern food and drink scene.
