Ladro Greville for pizzas and buzz

Ladro in Gertrude Street has opened its larger cafe in Greville Street Prahran. Its minimalist decor with the same white washed brick walls and concrete floors works here too in this chic diner. Here unlike Gertrude there is a generous bar area, expansive dining hall and large olive tree lined courtyard at the back

It is the wood fired pizzas that you come here for. The thin and crisp bases with their wonderfully smoky hint works like magic. The pizza puttanesca packs a punch with its chili, olives, anchovies, basil and capers.

Its pastas are also quite special –  not the usual lasagna or spag bol – instead rough cut pasta with bortolli beans, radiccio, goats curd and basil or the orecchiette with rich lamb ragu, peas and riccotta.

Short but well priced wine list with some great Italian options.

Great place to watch the eclectic Prahran clientele come and go, amidst a great buzz and brisk and friendly service.  Monday to Sunday opened for dinner till late (lunch only from Thursdays).
