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”
– “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.

Vegan mozzarella at Ladro.
Who doesn’t love pizza? Stupid question, of course everyone does. But for some of us, a delicious cheesy pizza is a disaster waiting to happen, for others omitting dairy is simply a lifestyle choice. Now those who can’t eat dairy and those who choose not to, can enjoy feasting on a Ladro pizza without missing out….on the chesse!
Ladro has introduced an amazing handmade vegan mozzarella to the menu, available in both Fitzroy and Prahran for your pizza feasting pleasure.
What’s the cheese?
Traditional mozzarella is made from buffalo milk and cows milk, hand formed into milky balls of curd – when fresh it’s hard not to eat them like apples! Okay, so vegan mozzarella it’s not made from buffalo or cows milks and doesn’t have that same stringy, stretchy, cheesiness we all love, but we reckon it’s the next best thing to the real deal. Our vegan mozzarella is soy based and melts like real cheese with the consistency of real mozzarella. Queen Margherita would be quietly chuffed and happily serve our vegan mozzarella on her namesake pizza.
If you want to experiment making your own vegan cheese, take a look at Julie Piatt’s book “This Cheese is Nuts”.
Feed Me Vegan Menus?
Ladro can also offer vegan Feed Me Menus based on our extremely popular Feed Me $45, $55 and $65 per head options. Simply inform us when you book your next function or event at Ladro and we will devise a seasonal menu for your entire group. Our pizza dough is vegan, as long as you are ok with yeast. We don’t use any animal products in preparation of the Ladro pizza dough and embrace traditional slow proving methods develop our award winning Roman style pizzas. Roman pizzas, unlike their Napoli cousins, are thinner and crispier with an ‘al dente cornicione’, or firm to the bite pizza edge/ crust.
Gluten Free Pizza
We also offer gluten free pizza at Ladro in Fitzroy and Prahran. Our gluten free pizza dough is made in the same traditional method as our conventional pizzas, with yeast and a small amount of extra virgin olive oil, from soya, tapioca, corn and rice flours. We introduced gluten free pizzas 6 years ago at Ladro due to the high incidence of gluten intolerance amongst the Italian population. So if you happen to be a gluten free vegan, we’ve got all the bases covered!
To make a reservation either book online – Fitzroy or Prahran, or call us on
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!

The Annual FOH ALLSTARS DINNER!
Showcasing the very best in hospitality to support the phenomenal work of StreetSmart. Since 2008 Ladro has been a proud participant and supporter of StreetSmart and this year, [for the 2nd time], we hosted the 2017 dinner in Prahran. Over $42,000 was raised for StreetSmart on the night, helping to empower homeless people and support them through local, grassroots community projects.
100% of money raised on the night was donated.
A special thank you to Eleven Madison Park’s Daniel Humm who dropped into Ladro on the night and offered 2 x tickets to his restaurant Eleven Madison in NYC…They were auctioned off and sold, raising a phenomenal $5000!!! Of course, later that week Eleven Madison went on to take the gong for the world’s #1 restaurant. BIG congratulations from Ladro and all at StreetSmart! X
SUSTAINABILITY at LADRO
It can be tricky knowing how to introduce sustainable practices into your small business, but we think this one is a no brainer…
We use a high-tec Closed Loop bio-composting system at each Ladro site to help reduce waste which would otherwise be biffed into landfill. This means that 100% of our organic waste is recycled into compost…That’s zero, zippo, nada waste! We sell it back to you for $2 a bag and make regular donations to local community gardens, schools and exchange it for goods from our farmer suppliers. Win win.
Just so you know eating and drinking at Ladro is one way you can lessen your footprint on the planet, we also:
– Use Who Gives a Crap loo paper.
– Use eco-keg mineral water by the awesome DHSMWCo.
– Use 100% Aussie owned renewable energy by Momentum.
– Use 100% biodegradable BioPak packaging.
– Burn only sustainable timber from The Green Centre.
– Make our own vino in eco-kegs for Ladro TAP.
– Use only the best local and, where possible, sustainable, free-range or organic suppliers.
– We give back to the community with our Charity BYO $5 initiative every Monday.
