Ladro StreetSmart SmartMeals

Ladro x SmartMeals DONATE

It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed during the Covid crisis. Looking out for each other, sharing what you have and focusing on what you can do in your local community has kept us grounded at Ladro, thanks to StreetSmart their SmartMeals program.

We’ve been cooking 400 meals a week for vulnerable people impacted by the pandemic, as part of a new pilot program, SmartMeals, brainchild of Adam Robinson – CEO of StreetSmart Australia in response to the Covid crisis.

SmartMeals puts empty hospitality venues to good use with a win-win concept feeding many in need at the same time. It supports venues like Ladro who have supported NFP’s like StreetSmart, for many years.

To say the pilot has been life changing is an understatement. It’s been life saving – business saving. Ladro has been able to keep two full-time chefs employed during the crisis and literally stay afloat – it works like this:

Ladro has been paired with local Fitzroy charity St Mary’s House of Welcome. We cook hundreds of meals for people in need, delivering them daily to the charity. Ladro is paid a small fee to cover food costs and labour with 100% of the fee going towards providing meals to combat homelessness and keep staff employed. It’s simple and brilliant, like all good ideas.

Now is a great time to share what you have. We’re urging anyone who can afford it to donate directly to StreetSmart. It allows us to provide as many meals as possible to feed an ever increasing number of people in need. If you’re in a position to do so, please…

DONATE HERE

We are all in this together and together we can grow this idea beyond the 400 meals Ladro provides. Our dream is to keep this initiative going well beyond the Covid crisis and we need your help to to it.

If you are a food manufacturer, farmer with excess stock, or in a position to sponsor the program, Ladro & StreetSmart would love to hear from you and have a chat. We’re not too proud to ask for help, especially when it helps hundreds more.

THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the program so far. We honestly could not have come this far without you.

MOTHER’S DAY – FOOD BOX

Mother's Day with Ladro 2020

We miss our mums. We’re sure you do too.
Nothing is more comforting than a warm, reassuring mum hug when life challenges us most, and Covid lockdown sure is testing that theory. This weekend most of us have to settle for a warm hug of mama style cooking instead. Thanks for you votes too – the two most popular options are in the boxes.

Ladro has two food box options with 3 x courses for you to reheat at home – brunch, lunch or dinner, for two, four or more. Add to the boxes with Prosecco, Wine, Negroni or fresh items from our LADRO SUPERMARKET.
Every Italian knows: Chi mangia sulo s’affoga – ‘He who eats alone suffocates’… But Covid lockdown wasn’t a consideration until seven weeks ago, so this Mother’s Day we encourage you to share a meal with your mum together, apart. Buon apettito XO

LADRO ANZAC FOOD PACK

Ladro Anzac Food Pack

It will be a very different ANZAC DAY this year.

Ladro has created an ANZAC FOOD PACK so you can break some bread, share a meal and reflect on love, life and lost souls.
We have 2 options (lamb or vegetarian) and each pack feeds 2 people x 3 courses.
Packs can be made up for 4, 6, 8, 10+, simply let us know when you place your order.

Ladro X Deliveroo

Ladro Pizza Delivery

We always think eating pizza straight from the wood-fire oven is best. BUT, if you can’t come to us, Ladro has partnered up with Deliveroo so our pizza can come to you.
Order from FITZROY
Order from PRAHRAN

Of course we also think you’re better off picking up the pizza yourself too…call us purists. We’re all about making sure you enjoy Roman style, thin crust pizza the way it should be eaten.

Vegan mozzarella? Yes you can.
Gluten free pizza? Yep, that too.
AND our Deliveroo menu includes all the other Ladro favourites, not just pizza.

Buon appetito!

#worldstoughestjob MOTHERS DAY

Ladro Sophia Loren Mothers Day

We challenge you to watch #worldstoughestjob and not feel compelled to give their mama a giant hug! Treat her this Mothers Day… and everyday after!

Ask your mama what she wants to do this Mothers Day…Here’s what our mama’s want more than anything in the world:
Q: What would you like to do this Mothers Day?
– “a home made card with words to treasure”
– “pizza of course”
– “a hand made mug and a pair of wooly socks”
– “SLEEP”
– “lunch with the family”

We asked our mama’s what their favourite dishes are. Not surprisingly they said: pizza, roast, bubbles and chocolate came up A LOT!
So these are the extra special mama loving dishes we are serving alongside our usual menu this Mothers Day. Be sure to make a booking and your mama can enjoy feasting on our mum’s favourite dishes too.

BOTTOMLESS PIZZA – TUESDAYS

Bottomless Pizza returns in 2018 to Fitzroy and Prahran every Tuesday until Spring!

Get on your scooter and hightail to Fitzroy or Prahran to fill your belly with unlimited pizza for $20pp. Feast with a group of friends, your family or roll on in solo.

BOTTOMLESS PIZZAS
– Pizza Margherita [surprise, surprise]
– Badabing Pizza
– Mariners Pizza
– Pizza Puttanesca

Our 2018 Bottomless Pizza’s are the 4 most popular pizzas we serve at Ladro, so we know you’ll love them.

ROSSA vs BIANCA?

Coincidentally, the top 4 pizzas all happen to have a rossa, or red pizza base. This may have something to do with our outrageously delicious Italian sugo. Or it could just be that rossa pizzas really are better than their bianca counterparts. You be the judge! Ladro loves all of it’s pizzas like children, equally.

The first Italian pizzas were actually bianca style flat breads served as a peasant food and made simply with oil, herbs and garlic – tomato sugo, olives and anchovies are said to have been an addition soon after, and eventually cheese was added. In 1889 the Margherita Pizza was born in honour of the queen of the day. Find out more about the origins of pizza here. Feast on the Ladro ‘Mariners Pizza’ which is said to be the original pizza the Fishermen ate upon arrival back to shore and many pizza-files argue this is a tastier pizza than the Margherita.

Very few pizzerias actually serve this ancient recipe, but we do at Ladro. Less is more and this is truly one of the tastiest pizzas ever created.
If you are ever in Naples, be sure to visit Da Michele where they only serve 2 pizzas. The original Marinara and the traditional Neopolitan Margherita. There is always a very lengthy queue so be sure to arrive early or you could be left salivating, watching the hoards feast on these two misshapen pizzas with envy.

EASTER OPENING HOURS

Ladro Easter Opening Hours 2018

Ladro is open Easter Thursday and Easter Tuesday, but we are closing for the main public holidays from Good Friday to Easter Monday.
Everyone at Ladro will be taking some valuable time off to spend feasting with family and friends and we hope you have the opportunity to do the same.

May your hot cross buns rise well and feasts be abundant!

BUONA PASQUA + HAPPY EASTER to all our awesome customers! XO Ladro
