Universal Italian Restaurant & Function Venue

Frequented by the local university crowd, Universal Pizza on Lygon street is over 30 years old and something of a Melbourne institution. Open long hours, it serves a great variety of pizzas and pastas at affordable prices. Popular on the menu are the chicken parma and porterhouse steak. A kids menu makes it an easy place for families.

We went on a Monday night - while the food was delicious, the service was very very slow. We had to ask 3 times to get wine glasses. And they had no stock of the happy-hour beers or cider either, which was disappointing.
However the food made up for it. The pasta and pizza were great.
We tried the famous chicken schnitzel too- it was delicious.

If you want to eat the best parma of your life than this is the place to get it. Best parma in Melbourne by a mile and extremely good value. These things are huge! Loved my whole experience here.

Great value for money when we attended their unlimited pasta night... We literally just kept eating and it was a massive laugh.

Exceptionally good quality and quantity for a very reasonable price. I suggest the parma for $14 with a $6 choc fudge milkshake, won't disappoint!

Here for a work dinner on a Friday night. Universal Italian on Lyon has a very lively atmosphere. Busy and a lot of people here for drinks or late dinner, a lot of chit chatting. The menu has a great selection to pick from. I ordered salmon and for entree everyone shared the fried calamari between a table of 4. Food portion was pretty decent for the price. And it tasted pretty good as well. I really enjoyed my salmon, the skin was crunchy and the side greens was very refreshing. The fried calamari was also great as an entree. Great experience.
