This traditional hub of Italian life in Sydney centres around Norton Street, the avenue famously packed with red-sauce pasta joints, excellent grocers and the soon-to-be-revamped Palace Cinema. Check out the Italian Forum for a right-there-in-Italy feel (of a semi-genuine nature) and shop at the Norton St Grocer that started it all.
