Good thing we took a wrong turn and ended up at Il Pizzaiolo last night. We had no booking and there were no tables available except the table next to the front door.
We took it and did not regret it.
What fabulous service and attention to 2 people who simply walked off the street.
Amazing pizza, great wine.
Definitely going back with our friends.
Love it.

Thank Thellyp

Never mind the rest this is simply the best pizza in Melbourne. Pizza dough and sauce were delicious, they've really perfected the perfect pizza. Atmosphere was great, loved all the old Italian tunes. Meal was perfectly finished off with a shot of limoncello. Will definitely be back.

Had heard rave reports about this place, visited last night for the first time and now know why it's so popular.

We arrived just after 6 when it was almost empty. They welcomed us, told us they were fully booked but could squeeze us in for a quick meal. All done in a very friendly way with no pressure.

Food was amazing. Both the pizzas and dessert donuts were delicious, full of flavours and light, filling but not overwhelming.

Service was spot on. Friendly and attentive but not overbearing or pushing us to finish up, even though the place was nearly full when we left.

We'll definitely be back!

Coming from an Italian background good food is so important! This is by far our favourite pizza restaurant. Best toppings and base by far! Trust me.. we know our pizza! Patata with pancetta is the bomb!
