MELBOURNE | Son Of A Pizzaiolo Thornbury is the baby of brothers Frank and Roque Romano who, as the name suggests, have a passion for pizza. What’s not evident from the name however, is that the menu at Son of a Pizzaiolo is about a lot more than just pizza. Along with excellent pizzas that range from traditional to experimental are fantastic pasta dishes, mains and sides. During the day (well all day in fact), there’s a breakfast menu which contains a familiar list of Melbourne breakfast favourites along with a number of dishes with seasonal twists – who doesn’t like Nutella french toast.

The City Lane was invited for dinner and sampled a range of things from the menu. Our favourite pizza was the Prosciutto, a classic combination of Napoli sauce, buffalo mozzarella, basil, 24 month aged Prosciutto di Parma, rocket and Grana Padano. Utterly delcious toppings on a wood fired Neapolitan style base. We were also very impressed by the Pulled Pork Pockets of deep fried Neopolitan dough filled with slow cooked pulled pork shoulder, and served with natural yoghurt and salsa verde. In fact, we could have eaten these pockets all night and would have been happy. On the pizza front, we decided to go for the gnocchi. Plenty of places get gnocchi wrong but what we ate at Son of a Pizzaiolo was perfect – home made blue sapphire gnocchi in a burnt butter and sage sauce of zucchini alla scapece with toasted pine nuts and goats cheese chantilly. Definitely one of the must order items on the menu.

The drinks list impresses too, with a good selection of local and imported wines and spirits along with some Italian craft beers not often seen at venues like this.

The name might have you thinking that Son of a Pizzaiolo is a mere pizza joint, and if it’s pizza you’re after you won’t be disappointed however the Romano brothers have a lot more to offer those who walk through their doors. Combine the excellent food with Italian hospitality that makes you feel like you’ve walked into someone’s home, and you’ve got all you need for a fantastic experience.
