Never go hungry in the city again: SPQR Pizzeria is here to serve you a slice of the good stuff. It's the new venture from David Mackintosh, one of the dudes behind MoVida, Pei Modern, Rosa’s Canteen and Lee Ho Fook. Close to the CBD theatre district, it's our new fav spot for a pre-show bite. Pick up a quick slice at the takeaway out front, or head inside for a full wheel of legit Italian pizza. The crowning jewel is Mackintosh's custom-built wood-fire oven, which can turn raw dough and hope into a crusty, oozy pizza in under 60 seconds flat.
Most of the classic hits have made it onto the menu–think Margherita, Salumi or Calabrese–but there are some upmarket choices too. Personally, we're a sucker for the Cotto: smoked leg ham, basil, Fior Di Latte and mixed mushrooms. Complement your meal with a selection of local and Italian drinks behind the bar.
Need another reason to stop by? SPQR has live music every Wednesday-Saturday night to add a little atmosphere to your evening. Bellissima!
