Warm, welcoming and above all really delicious! Located in Newtown, Alberto’s Pizzeria, still run by 82 year old owner Alberto himself, practices the Italian tradition of quality and generosity in the service of food. Alberto came to Australia more than 60 years ago, bringing with him authentic family recipes for delicious pasta, veal and chicken dishes as well as true Italian pizza. You can choose standard toppings or go for exotic options like marinated eggplant, bocconcini, cashew nuts, Calabrese salami, chili salsa and lots more. Make it a proper meal with a selection of salads and breads and leave room for dessert – Alberto’s heavenly Nutella Pizza is a must have. There are choices for the bambini and vegetarians as well. Enjoy the delightful eat-in ambience or take away. If Alberto is there (he usually is) ask him about his early career playing piano accordion. Just make sure you have a glass of wine in your hand – it might be a long story.
