Tiamo

A Lygon Street mainstay.

Back in Carlton, Melbourne's Italian food hub, Tiamo has been serving pizza, pasta and coffee on Lygon Street for more than four decades. The super-popular family-run venture is cosy and comfortable, despite spilling over into the space next door and upstairs to a second level, making it the perfect spot for a big group affair.

Take your pick of the two venues — Bistro and Cucino — and settle in for a classic Italian meal featuring antipasto, salads, pasta and simple (but delicious) pizzas. There is also a selection of mains available, ranging from authentically Italian (veal scallopine) to somewhat less so (what's wiener schnitzel doing on the menu?). If you've got room for dessert, you can take your pick of cannoli with homemade ricotta, lemon ricotta cheesecake, homemade tiramisu or crepes. Tiamo is open from 7am–11pm every day of the week and you can BYO wine for $5 per bottle.
