Borsari Restaurant sits underneath a very distinctive and iconic local sign. Though now a restaurant, this site was the original locale of Nino Borsari's bicycle store, and his story is a notable one.

After winning a gold medal at the 1932 Olympics Nino #Borsari came to Australia and ultimately set up this bicycle store in Lygon St. Over the years he came to embody, not only local pride in Carlton, but for wider Italian and immigrant culture within Australia.

Visiting the restaurant today it can be observed much Italian tradition has been maintained through the generations. Alongside warm lighting and outdoor dining, the portion sizes are well known to be sufficiently generous.

What's more, this is a restaurant with a variety Italian tastes. Borsari delivers with anchovies, veal and prosciutto dishes featuring alongside the beloved minestrone soup and spaghetti bolognese. In turn, if yet to visit Borsari it surely rates a 'must try'.
