WOW has it been a year already? 2014 Art Town is on this weekend in and around Prahran, Windsor + South Yarra with over 80 artists doing their thang. You’ll see artists in Ladro Greville and Signed & Numbered as well as on the street, in the parks and there is even an interactive workshop in Greville St just up from Ladro Greville by the town hall. This is Art Town’s 6th year and it just gets better and better. This year the phenomenally talented and award winning Drasko will be in da house at Ladro Greville working on a projection piece … here’s a snippet from his recent works .
STREETSMART AUSTRALIA PRESENTS FRONT OF HOUSE ALL STARS DINNER
If you haven’t heard about Streetsmart Australia and all the wonderful work they do, led by founder and CEO Adam Robinson, then you need to! Since 2003 Adam has led a growing team including the organisations patron Tim Costello (CEO World Vision) to raise much needed funds to beat homelessness. All funds raised are donated to grassroots organisations via grants to help those in need and raise community awareness about homelessness. Tonight, as we have done for many years, Ladro will be participating in the annual Front of House All Stars Dinner to raise funds for Streetsmart Australia. Last year, along with half a dozen restaurants, we managed to raise a fabulous $25,000.00 on the night! Tonight Sean Kierce (co-founder Ladro, smiling above) along with one of our chefs will be donating food, time and expertise and we hope to beat last years figure…this years FOH All Stars Dinner will be held at Union Dining. …Go Sean + dig deep tonight folks! If you can’t make it tonight and want to make a contribution go here.
A collaborative night of projection, food and wine with Internationally renowned projection artist Yandell Walton. Continuing our 10th birthday celebrations with the 10 x 10 x 10 FEASTS Ladro is very proud to present FEAST #4…
Our white walls will be transformed into an immersive series of projections whilst you enjoy 10 x edible offerings from Ladro chef Darren Mercaldi…responding to Yandell’s amazing work.
Art. Food. Life. It promises to be a dinner unlike any other you have ever experienced and one of the most exciting collaborations of our favourite Ladro friends in the 10 x 10 x 10 FEASTS. As a proud patron of the arts, $40 from every ticket will go directly to the artist. Tickets are very limited so please book quickly to ensure you have a seat.
TUESDAY 12th NOVEMBER 7pm sharp LADRO GERTRUDE – 224 Gertrude St FITZROY $120 ph (10 x dishes) – $40 from every ticket goes directly to artist
Continuing on with our 10th Birthday celebration FEASTS, we are very excited to announce 10 x 10 x 10 FEAST #3…TEA! We have partnered up with the worlds best tea purveyor (in our humble opinion) Storm In A Teacup, who happens to be our neighbour in Smith St and tea supplier.
Storm In A Teacup are serious tea geeks and we are collaborating with them to bring you a 10 x DISH FEAST using tea in every dish. Think tea smoked meats, tea infused panna cotta, edible tea leaf salads and no tea feast would be complete without a tea-tail…or should that be cock-tea’s? Btw, Hannah + Misha from SIATCup will be there to talk all things tea…and believe us, they know their leaves!
This is sure to be a sell out feast + seats are limited so get in quick…’cos it’s great value for 10 x dishes. Grab friends, colleagues, tea + foodie heads or even your neighbour like we did!
AUGUST 19th marks WORLD HUMANITARIAN DAY Architects Without Frontiers warmly welcomes you in celebrating this special day. Share food + drinks whilst listening to guest speakers and all the wonderful things this great organisation has planned for the next year…Ladro supports AWF and you can too.

Join us for the 2nd ever PIZZA FESTIVAL on Wednesday 12th June.
$20 = PIZZA + VINO / BIRRA
Keep the Winter chills at bay + be sure to book a table for one, or for all! We are only 1 of 12 pizzerias in Melbourne to be invited to cook up a storm for the festival so we are just a little bit excited. Some keen folk are even eating southside then heading northside for maximum pizza festivities.
It was truly inspiring and a great pleasure to do a ‘trade’ with photographic guru Shantanu Starrick from The Pixel Trade. You’ll see some of the fine photos Shantanu shot on his website and we’ll be posting them through out the year. He was also kind enough to rustle together this cool little 45 second movie of Oscare making one of our biggest selling pizza’s…The Putanesca…from dough ball to table via the 450deg wood fired oven. Hmmm, just watching it makes us hungry all over again. Watch the 45 movie and feel free to share! Ladro ‘Sweet 45’ Movie
Ladro and Il Fornaio invite you to join us for a 10 dish feast showcasing hand-made cheeses by Sabrina and Katia, the Il Fornaio sisters. The sisters will make mozzarella at the dinner and Ladro Chef Niko will be using it in a dish!
