Ladro, Fitzroy

Ladro, modern Italian fare extraordinaire, fabulously has locations both north and south of the river so whether at home or work we can stop by. We have been to Ladro Tap on Greville Street for a quick, ridiculously delicious pizza previously but recently we had the chance to enjoy full service dinner at Ladro Gertrude.

Completely spoilt by staff from beginning to end, Ladro's passion for great food as well as a commitment to sustainable practices shines through into their service and attention to detail. We were encouraged to see our dinner as a rambunctious food adventure with our attendants the wind in our sails. Easily persuaded into trying goat for the first time, my gnocchi ragu paired with a Prickly Moses Otway Light was perfect for a winter evening. To complete the evening: cannoli and limoncello, while others at the table tempted us with their serving of Amaretto Affogato.
