Trip to Melbourne planned, where to find good pizza?
« on: January 12, 2013, 01:10:44 PM »
Hi all,

I'm planning a short work & play trip to Melbourne in a month or so.  I'll be aiming to sample the best pizza I can find.  I'm after neapolitanesque pizza. I've done the obligitory googling, and going on reviews and pictures have come up with the following places I'd like to try:

  • LaSvolta
  • 400 Gradi
  • Scoozi
  • Firechief

Probably not-coincidentally, when I was coming up with this list I discovered that 3 of the 4 above are AVPN accredited, and the other is applying to be.

The following are the "also rans" that I don't think I'll bother with - mostly because I've managed to find pictures of pizza from these places that gave me some doubt.
  • Plus 39 Pizzeria
  • Woodfire Cafe Pizzeria
  • Marcadante
  • Ladro
  • D.O.C
  • Pizza Farri
  • Fratellino


Any locals able to give me a steer?  What have I missed?  Am I way off the mark?

Many thanks,
Dylan

I know 400 gradi is very good, the owner (Johnny) is a great researcher of neapolitan pizza, they changed the oven to a SF, so the pizzas must be even better.

that app looks like a sound investment!   we've arrived in Melbourne and friends have turned us onto a few good places that I hadn't found on Google.  Haven't figured out if I'll be "that guy" taking photos of every pizza I eat... might happen!
