They had us at make-your-own charcuterie boards.

The proof is in the pizza at Prova Pizzeria. In fact, prova actually means proof in Italian — although their titular dishes offer plenty.
Tomato sauce-slathered bases, non-tomato sauce slathered-bases: you'll find both on the menu at their Stafford Heights restaurants, with multiple combinations of toppings. Just try to pass up a gamberi with tomato, mozzarella, prawns, garlic, cherry tomato, rocket and chilli, or a porcini with mozzarella, mushrooms and truffle oil — or garlic, sea salt and rosemary foccacia, for that matter. And, because you can't run an Italian joint in this town without offering up something Nutella-filled and doughy for dessert, there's Nutella and banana calzones and Nutella pizza pockets with chocolate ice cream on the dolci menu.
There's something else that makes Prova Pizzeria stand out, however: make-your-own charcuterie boards. Just pick your choice of cheese (buffalo mozzarella, smoked mozzarella, burrata or ricotta) and meat (proscuitto, bresaola, soppressa, salame or capocollo), pair it with bread, olives and rocket, and munch away.
