The unwavering popularity of Lygon Street is a testament to the love-affair Melburnians, and Australians, have with Italian cuisine.
While it's brimming with the traditional institutions that have been pumping out the classics for decades, the street continues to evolve as new restaurants continue to open and add their touch of Italy to the strip.
Carlton's newest member to this well-established club is Nero Carlton.
Nero is described as "the brainchild of a group of passionate Italians who have worked extensively in leading cafes and restaurants in Italy".
There is a deep commitment to la dolce vita and an emphasis on eating together and sharing a meal between family and friends.
Head chef Piero Roldo comes to Nero with over 30 years experience, having worked in citys like Los Angeles and London.
The menu is delievered in the freshest way possible, with artisan pizza and hand-made pasta on offer and is complemented by an extensive wine list developed with Arquilla.
We are proud to be working with such an exciting new restaurant and look forward to what the future holds for this partnership.
