Because everyone wants mac 'n' cheese pizza and Nutella arancini.

You've heard that good things come in small packages. You've also heard that sometimes, it's the simplest things in life that are the best. They're oft-spouted phrases for a reason, and they ring true at Dutton Park's newest eatery. Think of Little G as a slice of Italian deliciousness that mixes tradition with a few new additions.

Little more than a hole in the wall next to Gertrude & Mabel on Gladstone Road, what Little G lacks in size it makes up for in the kind of pizza you'll want to go back for again and again. In fact, since the restaurant opened its doors, its outdoor picnic tables have bustling — and they're not the only area of the place that have gone into overdrive. Dough production has also doubled in response to demand.

So just what's inspired such a frenzy? Well, that'd be pizza combinations such as pear, gorgonzola and proscuitto; potato, smoked paprika and roasted garlic; and mac 'n' cheese and lardo. Yum. From the "not pizza" section the menu, feast on a selection of salumi and accompaniments,  or brussel sprouts with mozzarella and crackling. And for dessert? Well, let's just say that Nutella arancini is about to become your new favourite treat.
