10 x 10 x 10 – #1 Truffle Dinner

Ingrid + Sean, original owners of Ladro, invite you to join them in celebrating 10 YEARS of Ladro! [They’re older than they look!!!]

They are planning a pretty awesome line up dinners [and some lunches] called 10 X 10 X 10 – yep, 10 feasts, each with 10 dishes, for 10 years of Ladro…all showcasing our favourite + best-est, ever-est producers and suppliers…yippeeee!

#1 is timed perfectly to showcase the fledgling truffle season in Australia…THE TRUFFLE FEAST.

TRUFFLES by the awesome Truffle Hound
VINO by the ever cool Distillery Works

Be sure to book early as when you’re paying $2500 a kg for truffles, this 10 dish feast is a bargain and places are limited.

Ladro_Pizza_FestJoin us for the 2nd ever PIZZA FESTIVAL on Wednesday 12th June.


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.

Ladro ‘Sweet 45’ Movie

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!
