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.

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.
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!
BUONA PASQUA + HAPPY EASTER to all our awesome customers! XO Ladro
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.
You’re invited to our next beer masterclass where we spoil you with 5 x courses matched to 5 x beers from some of the best brewers in the world [well we think so]!
Next keg off the rank is the formidable AKASHA BREWERY from Five Dock outside Sydney. Relatively unknown in Melbourne, but not for long, thanks to their fine attention to detail, consistency and innovation when it comes to brewing.
This Beer-gustation will be a bit different to those in the past…we will be featuring beers from several other breweries as well as AKASHA, all matched to 5 amazing courses from chef Arron Edwards.
