Moretti Ristorante Pizzeria

After 17 years on Leichhardt's Norton Street, this authentic pizzeria is still at the top of Sydney's Italian game.

Oh Moretti, how we adore thee. Set back from Leichhardt's busy Norton Street hustle, 17 years on this strip is saying something. That authentic pizzeria air hits you the moment you're in there and it's like some sort of voodoo. You're half expecting to start speaking fluent Italian. But we shan't get too carried away: we're here for the pizza (although other mains are equally as tempting).

Crunchy and thin throughout — not even a raised border in sight, the focus is on the toppings. Pizza bianche (white base) options are aplenty: opt for the Trastevere ($24.50) if you fancy Roman sausage with potato and rosemary, or Oscar ($24) with mascarpone and prosciutto. Get the napkins out if you're ordering the rosse (tomato base) — the saucy discs are even more dribble-worthy. We got Spagna ($24.50) with garlic, prawns, artichoke hearts, basil and chilli and a Jema ($24.50) with chorizo sausage and heaven-sent Buffalo mozzarella. Whatever you choose, don't forget you're as close to Italy as you'll be for awhile, so make room for their famous tiramisu ($14.50).
