Grand Final Day 2003 marked the birth of Ladro – the day we opened our doors on Gertrude St Fitzroy. So this GF Day we’ve put together a special lockdown feasting box to heat-at-home.
7 dishes for $37.50pp.
Boxes must be ordered for 2, 4, 6, 8 or more.
Orders over $120 will receive a complimentary damn fine 750ml Marsuret Prosecco bottle love Ladro – no Italian birthday is complete without it! Stock up your Ladro pantry from the supermarket and bottleshop at the same time.
– celebrate our 18th birthday
– console ourselves the GF in not in Melbourne…again
– feast on footy fare the Ladro way to keep us all sane
We’ll even deliver within a 10km radius on Friday 24 September so it’s ready for the big night.
In the neighbourhood? Pick-up your feast from Fitzroy and Prahran restaurants.
Thanks for your support.
Stay sane, safe and get vaccinated.
Share a 3 course Father’s Day feast this Sunday or send one to dad. We’ve done all the hard work so you can spend more time relaxing.
Our Ladro Father’s Day Food Box is all ready for you to simply heat 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 when this saying was chimed, so this Father’s Day we encourage you to share a meal with your dad together, apart. Buon apettito XO

Support local businesses and communities…We need you more than ever.
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…
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.
Wowsers, what a year!
At least Ladro & Ladro TAP will be open everyday except the main public holidays, right through the holiday season. To be be frank, without all your support, we’re not certain we’d have made it to Christmas this year – so thank you. Thank you for supporting us through takeaway only, buying goods from our Ladro Supermarket & Bottleshop, and most of all for dining with us the last six weeks. We’re so glad to be back doing what we love and can’t wait til 2021 ticks over.
Have a safe, feast filled and laughter riddled holiday with all your favourite people – but if COVID restrictions are keeping you apart, just know we’ll be thinking of you.
Lots of love,
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

It will be a very different ANZAC DAY this year.
In a way we are fighting our own real-time war, on Covid-19. And more than ever we need to set some time aside and remember all those before us who battled for the liberties we have taken for granted…for so long, maybe until now.
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.
Pay it forward to someone in need, a frontline worker or maybe just needing some Ladro love and we’ll deliver it within 5 kms of Fitzroy or Prahran.
