Pizza d’Asporto Yarraville, 2-6 Ballarat Street, Yarraville. Phone: 9689 6807
The first day of public trading is on the Thursday, but in the meantime the newly assembled team at Pizza d’Asporto Yarraville is under the pump on the Wednesday night.
There could not be a better trial run for all of them than the opening celebration currently in full swing.
A happy crowd of family and friends have gathered for the event.
The old post office premises has been fitted-out beautifully.
I have a negroni and couple of Pieronis; Bennie is hammering the Chinotto.
It may be a new experience in a new kitchen for these guys, but the Pizza d’Asporto quality is there all the way.
This pizza finally pushes Bennie beyond tipping point in terms of zucchini fandom.
Yet even this simple number of just cheese, chilli, olive oil and salt is amazeballs.
But the biggest flavour hit, for us, comes from this perfect-in-every-way traditional pasta pesto with beans and potato.
OMG so good!
We have a ball; meet some interesting people; just generally enjoy hanging out.
What a joy it is that we have a Pizza d’Asporto right in our very own neighbourhood.
Mind you, we’ll doubtless still hit the Williamstown mothership on occasion – just because, you know, we dig it.
Congratulations to Claude, Antoinetta, Anthony and their team.
