Open since November 2007, Pizzaiola is an Italian-Australian pizza joint who have modified their pizzas to suit the Australian palate. Owner/chef Zuri Simhi runs the floor with personality, greeting the regulars by name as they enter the bright, modern space. You can dine in, sitting at tables on small red stools or at a window bar, though most customers enjoy takeaway and home delivery. Frequent buyers are rewarded with a loyalty card that makes every tenth pizza totally free. Pizzas come in a gourmet range including the unusual (and excellent) Godfather (S $13, M $16, L $19, X $23) with double smoked ham, prosciutto, mushrooms, garlic, parmesan, basil, rocket and a touch of chilli; and a traditional range like the Capri (S $10, M $14, L $18, X $22) topped with cheese, tomato, prawn, onion, garlic and chilli. They even have dessert pizzas, including the Cioccolato e Fragole (S $9, M $11, L $15, X $18) which sees fresh strawberries and almond flakes scattered over a chocolate topped pizza base. Pastas, side salads, pizza wraps, pizza by the slice ($5) and a few chicken dishes round out their large menu, plus there’s an interesting selection of drinks including Nippy’s Tangy Lemon Fruit Drink ($3).
