I remember back in the day – which is a rather vague period of time I know – but goodlife Pizza was essentially THE location for gourmet pizza.

IMGP1113_rs

I think I want to be adopted into an Italian family. It’s not the first time I have thought this either, but it was just reinforced having walked away from the 50th birthday celebration at Port Pizza Bar (aka Carmine and Co). 50 years is a long time for a restaurant to exist, and to not just survive but thrive ...

Farina 00 Pasta and Wine – Pizza Menu Launch

Margherita

Pizza is like lingerie in – stay with me here – at least two ways. Firstly, simplicity is always better. All the bows and sparkly hearts and excessive lace and…fluffy bits….

Looking at my Instagram feed, you would swear that lately all I have done recently is eat pizza and drink beer. Not that there is any issue with that at all. So just to continue the trend, I offer you some words about another pizza place, and this time an old favourite – Brunelli. This wood oven pizza venue has ...

Lost in a Forest 

Set amongst the trees and hidden away in the beautiful village of Uraidla is one of the Adelaide Hills best kept secrets. Wood oven pizza is a bit dime-a-dozen these days, so this alone is not enough to raise any eyebrows. An old church being the main building and kitchen is an interesting feature, as is allowing patrons to simply throw ...
