Toto’s Pizza House on Lygon Street is touted as the first pizza restaurant in Australia, but I don’t know if that is myth or fact.
Pretty much right next door to La FabRiK is Il Pizzaiolo. You guessed it, an Italian Restaurant.
Pizza Express is where the Eastside Tavern used to be.
After a bit of a siesta after a Saturday of eating and drinking I headed off to see what restaurants were hiding in the laneways of Saint Michel to see what the options were. I strolled down to Boulevard Saint-Germain, up Rue Dante and Rue de l’Hotel Colbert and Quai du Montebello but nothing really took my fancy, and those that did were full. Shakespeare and Company was closed for the day and I’d started to lose hope.
About 50m past Shakespeare and Company was Café le Petit Pont. The place was bustling but had a few tables available so I went in and was given a seat facing towards Notre Dame Cathedral.
After a couple of beers at Frog XVI, I got the bus back to Saint-Michel and as I was walking back to my hotel I started to feel a bit hungry.
There’s a large Italian restaurant on the corner of Rue Saint-Séverin and Rue de la Harpe called Rim Café.
