Enjoy the Italian atmosphere of pizza restaurants in Victoria. Australians have embraced that delicious Italian creation, the pizza, enthusiastically with pizza restaurants virtually everywhere in Victoria. Melbourne, with its substantial Italian-Australian population, could make a serious claim to be Australia's pizza capital. Lygon Street in Carlton is known as Melbourne's Little Italy, and this district offers plenty of pizza restaurants replicating the recipes, decor and attitude of the old country. Elsewhere in the state, restaurants might not have such a distinctive European look, but the pizza place remains a cornerstone of the Victorian culinary scene.
