There are few things that get the pulse of the average Melburnian going like the prospect of an evening out on the tiles, and a top-notch meal is the ideal way to begin such an adventure. Italian food in Melbourne is more often associated with Carlton and Lygon Street, but it goes much deeper than that – Tazio on Flinders Lane in the CBD is flying the flag for the cuisine near Flinders Street station with a menu that includes everything good about the food of the bel paese.
Deep in the CBD, outside of the more established Little Italy strip on Lygon Street, there is a restaurant that brings the traditional Italian fare into collision with popular new food trends. Tazio Birraria, Pizzeria and Cucina on Flinders Lane have done the hard yards as a pizzeria – theirs is arguably Melbourne’s best – but they do not rest on their laurels: they add to the repertoire with a huge range of beers to complement the food.
The pizzas at Tazio are assembled with love, and using only the finest ingredients – the mozzarella is fior de latte, the ham pancetta and the salami sopressa – and accompanied by beers from around the world, including, of course, a huge range of Italian choices. Head on over to Flinders Lane – close to Exhibition Street and Flinders Street station – for an Italian dining experience that is the envy of any in Melbourne CBD.
I booked using this site however restaurant did not receive booking. Restaurant really nice pizza was fantastic never had bad food nor bad service at Tazio.
