#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
