The precinct
K&G Deli

Our deli has a lineage we can trace back to 1884. It’s all about quality, variety and Italian-focussed flavours: salumi and cheese sliced to order, rolls stuffed with porchetta fresh from the oven or housemade antipasto. And now you can not only shop for groceries, wine and deli items, you can stay and dine in the deli either inside among the produce or outside watching the Carlton passeggiata.

A chic, enoteca-style wine bar on Lygon Street with clean lines, a classic Italian accent and a relaxed, sophisticated attitude. Agostino is as easy as a glass of great Italian wine and a half a dozen oysters at the bar or as satisfying as a long, leisurely dinner with great food, wine and friends.
