The Italian Bar Pizza Food Philosophy

Passion infuses the preparation and cooking of the food you’ll eat at The Italian Bar Pizza.

The pizzas are delicious, made from stone ground organic flour, with the dough fermented for three days using a natural ‘mother’ starter.

And yes, you can taste the difference.

Flavoursome, wholesome, seasonal food is what Italians love and it’s all here, served with love.

Celebrations with family and friends is also one of the great joys of Italian life, so your own celebrations will be well looked after here.
