Best Known For
Bistecca alla Gambero: eye fillet steak, topped with seafood, garlic, white wine and Napoli sauce.
For more than 40 years, IL Gambero has been an icon of Lygon Street, an Italian restaurant that remains a favourite in Melbourne’s famous dining precinct. Revamped yet maintaining the rusticity of a traditional Italian eatery, IL Gambero’s large outdoor tables, set against the vibrant green tiling are instantly inviting, while the interior boasts a compilation of exposed brick, round textured glass lampshades and dark furnishings, paired with the modern touch of large glass windows. Authentic pizza, pasta, old classics and new flavour combinations grace an impressive dining menu, featuring dishes like grilled Moreton Bay bugs, sea salt and lemon pepper calamari, creamy white wine sauce and salad. Meat lovers won’t go past grilled eye fillet with pepper, mushroom or blue vein sauce.
