Carlton's Lygon Street isn't short of Italian restaurants but you'll always find room for the brilliant cuisine of Il Gambero. The kitchen offers diners some of the best pizza and pasta the area has to offer and they've perfected their recipes over the course of 30 years in the business. The restaurant's downstairs area has a cool old-school vibe, with exposed brick walls and shelves packed with wine. Upstairs is a modern, classy affair that can be reserved for functions.

LOCATION
Il Gambero on the Park is situated on Lygon St, near Carlton Gardens.

DETAILS
Taking advantage of the opportunity for a fresh start, Il Gambero on the Park has created a space that has all the charm, warmth and reliability as its 30-year-old antecedent, but with the added appeal of modern upmarket style and comfort. Diners are welcomed by appetising blackboard specials and breezy al fresco tables, where satisfied patrons munch on mouth-watering pizza while looking out onto Lygon St Park. Inside, cosy dark wooden tables huddle up against the restaurant’s exposed brick walls, which are lined with vintage photographs, drawings and hand-scribbled blackboard menus. Il Gambero on the Park’s large traditional Italian menu, welcoming family atmosphere and enduring reputation all suggest that this new venture will reassume its rightful place as a Lygon St staple.

Il Gambero on the Park is perfect for families with fussy eaters, couples looking for a casual dinner or friends wanting a laid back place to celebrate the end of a long week. Like their food menu, the wine list is well thought out and great value for money. Old school Il Gambero fans will be happy to know that the restaurant still does take-away.


FUNCTIONS
Seating up to 120 guests, and available for cocktail events for up to 300 people, Il Gambero on the Park’s rejuvenated private dining room and balcony upstairs is an ideal location for a lively celebration hosted with Italian flair.
