6 Brisbane Pizzerias You Need To Try

Are you a fan of authentic Italian pizzas? If so, you are in the right place! After careful research (aka copious amounts of eating) we've rounded up some of the most delicious Italian pies our city has to offer. So good, you won't be able to stop at one slice...

Popolo Brisbane | Southbank

Southbank has it's fair share of great restaurants but if its Italian you desire look no further than Popolo. They are serving up some of the best and crispiest Margherita pizzas in town very generously topped with fresh buffalo mozzarella! Our stomachs are rumbling just thinking about it...

Il Verde | Fortitude Valley

Il Verde may have only opened its doors a few days ago but we make it our mission to immediately try any Italian restaurant that opens its doors. The mouthwatering creations at this new King Street eatery get our massive tick of approval.

Julius Pizzeria | South Brisbane

Julius Pizzeria has quite the reputation amongst Brisbane foodies for their droolworthy Italian creations. From the Tartufo (Mozzarella, Smoked Bacon, Portobello Mushrooms, Stracchino, and Truffle Paste) to the Salsiccia (Tomato, Mozzarella, Chilli, Provolone, Pork, Fennel Sausage, and Rocket) a vist to Julius always ends in a happy belly.

Casa Nostra Ristorante | Fortitude Valley

If traditional, Sicilian home cooking takes your fancy than Casa Nostra Ristorante in Fortitude Valley is the place for you. Located at the M&A building in the space formerly occupied by Mighty Mighty, Casa Nostra is bringing all the comforts of Italy to the river city. The pizzas are generously topped and bursting with flavour. Be prepared for one hell of a food coma.

Santa Monica | Brisbane CBD

Burgers aren't the only thing you'll find on the menu at Santa Monica Brisbane. The beautifully crafted menu also has a heavy Italian influence with dishes like arancini, pastas, and yes pizza! We highly recommend the Spicy Salami pizza followed by a banana split for desssert.

Il Locale | Paddington

At the right place, pizza can be perfectly acceptable date night food and Il Locale in Rosalie is the right place. Our personal favorites are the classic Margherita and the Pork & Fennel pizza. Finish off your foodie trip to Italy with a visit Gelato Cremona just a few minutes walk from Il Locale. Bellissimo!
