Description: +39 Is The International Dialling Code For Italy And A Thread Back To Everything We’re Inspired By Started By Six Friends Who Have Their Stomachs In Melbourne But Their Hearts In Naples — We’ve Been Sharing Pizza, Fighting Over The Last Bite Of Lasagna And Spilling Wine All Over The Table For Years. We Miss Our Nonna’s, So We’re Often Calling Home. Hours Have Been Spent On The Phone Scribbling Down Recipes, Reminiscing Over The Long Nights And Talking About Our Love For Italia. +39 Pizzeria Is Born From That Love. An Ode To The Pizzaiolo Of Naples, The Boys Riding Vespas Down Cobbled Alleyways, And To Our Nonna’s Who Would Whack Our Cheeky Backsides With Wooden Spoons And Then Feed Us Bowls Of Pasta.

We stopped in twice over the Easter weekend and loved the food, the vibe, the wine and the service. Pizza the first night was outstanding and the next night we had the 37layer lasagna. Great food, great fun. Going back for the gnocchi and risotto next trip.

Great food and great service. Lots of atmosphere. Crab pasta and tiramisu were excellent. Will definitely return.

They pack a lot of tables into this Italian restaurant and it was very busy even mid-week. Pretty noisy but a good feel about the place and prompt service. We all had pizza (2 between 3 women were adequate) which were authentic and nice but not outstanding. Good wines to compliment. What was delicious was dessert!

On paper this Pizzeria should be a winning dining experience - cracking CBD location with good selection of food and beverages.

Unfortunately it failed to deliver on all levels. My partner arrived at the allocated time, presented ourselves to the waiter only to be told a corporate party needed his attention. For the next 5 minutes we stood at the counter waiting for all the party members to pass, often pushing themselves against us as, through no fault of their own, tables had been squeezed together for maximum capacity meaning there was very little room for anyone to move.

Without apology due to the delay, we were shown to a table which can only be described as a back alley - 5 to 6 tablets in a dark area at the end of the restaurant on the route to the busy bathroom.

The table could only be described as the smallest I've sat at, hard backed chairs and absolutely no air, hence a hot environment as we sat and then the noise kicked in.

The corporate party got louder and louder and with the concrete floor, brick walls and high ceilings meant you couldn't hear the person opposite and they were less than two foot away!

Onto the food. We both selected the vegetarian piazza - looked good on the Website menu ; Parmigiana, with tomato salsa, slices of grilled eggplant and parmesan . What came was an under cooked base with a tasteless thin filling on top. At $23.50 not exactly great value either.

Total bill was $75 plus for 2 below average pizzas, 2 beers and service.

Would we return? Sure, if the pictures on their website reflected what we would actually receive, the tables were more spacious, seats more comfortable and noise 95% reduced, maybe we would. In reality, can't see it happening!

Have been coming here for years but after another fantastic experience felt I should write about it publicly. The place is always busy and has a great vibe. The staff are always lovely and the Parmigiana pizza is sensational! A go to for takeaway and a great date spot!
