On Grand Final Day 2003 we flung open our Ladro Fitzroy doors for the very first time, right here on Gertrude Street. Yep, we’re 20 years young!
To celebrate, we’re serving birthday Prosecco all Grand Final day on us – join is from 12noon, we’d love to see you.
With dejavu feels, Collingwood & Brisbane Lions actually played in the 2003 GF too. Twenty years ago the Lions put on a dominant second quarter with five strong goals to Collingwood’s one, stealing the premiership cup. Fast forward to 2023, and we’re still spinning pizza PIES and tapping into to our original FITZOY roots to support the Lions.
We’re kicking off International Lasagne Day with a return to the Ladro SUPERMARKET where you place your online order by Wednesday 12noon and we deliver to you on Friday.
Spend more time doing the things you love and let us do all the food prep for your favourite Ladro dishes including:
- Handmade Pasta
- Handmade Gnocchi
- Meatballs in Sugo
- Napoli Sauce
- Select Vino

PS: BYO your own bucket if you would like free bio-degradable compost made by all of Ladro’s organic waste [Ladro is a sustainable restaurant].
Ladro is passionate about sustainability and has a zero organic waste policy. We recycle all our food waste, from chicken bones and carrot tops, to uneaten pizza crusts [who leaves the best bit?].
With two large Closed Loop bio-composters located in Fitzroy and Prahran, we recycle all our organic waste into usable garden fertiliser, eliminating all our food waste from being dumped into landfill.
WANT SOME COMPOST FERTILISER?
Customers can buy a bag [$2] or bucket [$5] anytime when when visiting Ladro or when ordering takeaway via Foodora.
BYO your own bucket and we will fill it up for you. Are you’re involved in a NFP community garden, school or organisation, or know an organisation needing compost, take as much as you like. We’re all about closing the loop at Ladro and giving back to the community. We no longer contribute useless organic waste to landfill. Instead, our waste is turned into useful compost fertiliser to make gardens grow food full of nutrients. Good for us, good for you, awesome for the planet.
Are you a local farmer? We would love to chat about exchanging compost for produce. We can give you cubic meters for goods we can use in the kitchen, herbs, vegetables, or anything you might have growing in your garden. Lets chat.
Find out more via the Stonnington Council where Ladro was used as a best practice case study.
