Time Out Melbourne

Enoteca Sileno is a big part Lygon Street’s little Italy. The restaurant/foodstore/cellar imports and sells everything you need for a boozy, bountiful Italian feast: rocket fuel strength grappa, Sicilian Antica Dolceria Bonajuo dark chocolate, olive paste from Liguria, Puglian squid ink pasta, and a mind boggling range of thick candied fruit pastes, bound with mustard oil for a spicy sugar hit that jazzes up cured meats and cheese – which they also sell. Don’t know what to do with any of it? Sign up for their cooking and wine classes, or hell, just read the website. It’s an idiot-proof guide to the food and wines from the top of the boot to the toe.
