La Notte is an Italian Restaurant on Lygon Street in Carlton, open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper (until late). La Notte serve Vittoria coffee and function rooms are available which can hold up to 70 people. They also have a bottle shop, and alcohol served at your table is sold at bottle shop prices.
I walked along Lygon Street the other day, undecided about where to eat. I asked a waiter at La Notte if he thought I could be served within half an hour (my lunch break from work). "Maybe!" he offered.
I liked the guy's honesty, so I stayed and sat outside under some shade.
A lemon, lime and bitters materialised within minutes.
