Pizza. It’s delicious. It also has a huge spectrum of quality and authenticity. But Ladro, in both Fitzroy and Prahran, do it well. Really well. With a sleek interior, a wood fired oven or two and an Italian Nonna, Zia, making pasta by hand in the kitchen, pizza isn’t all they do well. Owned and run by business and life partners Sean Kierce and Ingrid Langtry, passion is in abundance — just like the food they create.
The pizza menu is your next port of call. The Badabing with tomato, provolone, pork sausage, oregano, chilli and basil ($20.50) has been a favourite for as long as Ladro have been serving it. Another well-loved option is Scout’s Pizza (affectionately named after one of Sean and Ingrid’s children), which consists of tomato, taleggio, caramelised onion, basil, dressed rocket and parmigiano ($21.50). If seafood is your thing try the Gamberi Piselli of tomato, lemon garlic prawns, peas, chilli and basil ($21).
