Ladro devotees no longer need to cross the river to get their hit – this classic pizza restaurant’s younger Prahran sibling is bigger and better. A combination of minimalist flair, no-fuss service and mouth-watering, thin-crust designer pizzas made the Fritzroy Ladro an overnight success. Take a seat at a marble-topped table and enjoy classic Italian pizzas, antipasto, pasta or roast of the day. Ladro now also offers gluten free pizza bases.

LOCATION
Close to the Greville Street action, a short walk from Chapel Street trams and Prahran train station.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Twins can be the same yet different, and the Ladro’s Prahran sister buzzes with the same intriguing energy that is created by food so good, it infuses the atmosphere with positivity. A sister for the hugely successful Ladro of Fitzroy was only a matter of time. Now Prahran locals can get a piece of the pizza action in their own neighbourhood. This new addition to the family offers those south of the river an experience that’s familiar and comforting, but at the same time something new. The same sharp, minimalist décor of the original is mirrored here, down to the white marble topped tables and the list of specials written in neat black texta on neat white tiles. There are even some familiar staff faces poached from the Fitzroy outpost, whose experience keeps the place ticking along nicely. However, this southern sibling features in a larger premise with a more spacious courtyard and bar to be enjoyed with an all-day bar menu. Lunchtime crowds love the deliciously crisp polenta-crumbed sardines, or nourishing bowls stracciatella of Roman soup served with aromatic house-made crusty bread.

The faithful Ladro following should be reassured that it’s business as usual in the Prahran kitchen. Many gold-plated favourites appear here with some site-specific variations to distinguish the restaurants. The ‘Sud’ pizza is a heady mix of tomato sugo skilfully blended with garlic, herbs and capers atop a perfectly cooked thin and crispy base. There’s a diverse selection of starters and non-pizza oriented mains such as house-made orecchiette pasta served with a rich lamb ragu, lifted to another level with the addition of fresh ricotta and fresh peas. The roast of the day, also a guest of the woodfired oven, is always a crowd pleaser and might vary from a meaty knuckle of veal, to locally made cotechino sausage teamed with braised Puy lentils and zesty salsa verde. Classic finishers such as panna cotta and the much-loved bomboloni of steaming, jam-filled mini doughnuts always beckon a sweet tooth no matter how satisfied you feel. A sweet delight unique to the new sibling restaurant is the ‘camino’ – ice cream served with coffee and Amaro Montenegro Liqueur. Like the new Ladro itself, it’s a welcome addition to the family.
