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.
It’s been a busy couple of years and taken us a while to settle back into a rhythm in the post-Covid apocalypse, and after selling Ladro TAP late last year in Prahran, but we think we’re finally there.
These will be our Ladro regular open hours:
Monday – 5:30-late
Tuesday – Closed
Wednesday – 5:30-late
Thursday – 5:30-late
Friday – 5:30-late
Weekends – 12noon-late
See you in Gertrude St soon!

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.

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.
