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!

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.

FOH ALLSTARS RAISE $42K @ Ladro!

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

BUON ANNO + HAPPY 2016!

2016-LadroHappy New Year! 

We all slept in today…No, not really, but we are opening up a little later than usual due to the joys of using a wood fire oven. When we shut down for long periods, say 9 days like we did this year, the oven can take more than 24 hours to warm up again to over 400 degrees! Hot stuff!

So today we are opening at:
5:30 in FITZROY and 4pm in PRAHRAN.

See you tonight for the first pizza in 2016 ! ! !
