One of Brisbane's great eat streets is Park Road, Milton. It is Brisbane's little Italy.

I have found it quite hard to find a quality pizzeria in Brisbane and Arrivederci Pizzeria would have to be a recommended place to eat pizza if in Brisbane. They serve it by the square and in metres.

It is home to a small replica of the Effiel Tower. It was erected in 1988.

And underneath, places to eat and shops.

And metres away, one of the great Brisbane institutions - the XXXX Brewery

La Dolce Vita opened in 1989, a year after the effiel tower was erected, still the question is why they would put a French icon in an area reowned for its Italian restaurants.

Park Rd was one of, if not the first, "cafe society" precincts in Brisbane.
I guess they hoped for a "Parisian" vibe by erecting the Eiffel Tower on Park Rd.
One of the most popular restaurants back then was a Thai place which was a bit of a delightful novelty in the late 80"s.

I remember those celebrations back in 2006 because I happened to be in town and not in Sydney where the Italians took over the entire suburb of Leichhardt.

Inside Arriverderci Pizza, there is a great photo of the street packed out with Soccer fans presumably from that same night/morning in July, 2006.
