I can now say I've had chesseless pizza! Photos below speak for themselves.... the entire thing tasted dry and burned. If I had thrown mushrooms and onions on top of salada crackers I would have achieved the same result....

Unfortunately we only went here for dessert but if the quality of the desserts are anything to judge, I'm coming back for mains!! I had a delicious panacotta, which was so light accompanied with pineapple, amazing taste sensation! The other desserts were just as great especially the tiramisu. Can't wait until I come back!

This is a vibrant place, very typical of South Yarra, St Kilda, Prahran - a minimalist urban interior. Pizza more is in Roman style - a thin base with a nice crust. A good choice of local and international beers, ciders & wines. Friendly service.

Great vibe and enthusiastic service. The signature polenta chips were very tasty and expertly prepared (and so filling!!). The calamari was yum. We ordered gluten free pizza bases as one of our party was gluten intolerant. These were fine, but we would have loved to try the other bases-they looked great. The pizzas were OK but the toppings didn’t taste... More

We visited Ladro last Saturday Night & it was funky & busy. Our meals of Risotto & a hamburger were ok albeit not brilliant. Service was reasonable & friendly. Ladro is probably more suited to a younger crowd. The chips with my hamburger were the saltiest & spiciest I have ever experienced.

We had authentic pizza and succulent pork rolls. Paired this with a couple of excellent draft beers - a really great lunch in the Melbourne sunshine.

When we arrived for something to eat late morning there was a large noisy crowd having a late breakfast. (It's that type of place) we were six and all had different meals. Some had breakfast, some lunch and some a mixture of food. (Italian doughnuts with Nutella and chips). Everyone seemed happy with their meals, the small pizza and large... More

Visited Ladro with my partner for a pre-theatre dinner. We shared the salumi board as an entrée (very nice) and opted for two different pizzas for mains. The J-Lo was tasty (especially with the added salami); the topping on the Putanesca was a little miserly, but it tasted good. We also shared a litre of the wine on tap (as... More

Can't fault this place. Very clean, waiter was very helpful. We didn't have a booking but squeezed us in. Polenta chips were yum. Had mushroom pizza and a chilli one, plenty of it didn't need desert. Great service nothing to much trouble. Fantastic atmosphere. Would def come back and sit outside on a warmer night. There is also a small... More

Had dinner here prior to a show and glad we walked in off the street. Squeezed us in between sittings. Huge selection of beers and happy hour 4-6 Saturday. The pizza's are incredible. Wood fired, thin crust with wonderful flavour combinations. Prices are very reasonable considering the quality level. Overall, a great experience.
