Pizzeria Overview

Our dishes have been passed down from generations and it is this which sets us apart - True Neapolitan PIZZERIA Melbourne.

Owners Valerio Calabro and Giussepe 'Pino' Russo, both arrived from their native Italy (Valerio from Tuscany and Pino from Salerno) with a vision to bring the fresh flavours of their homeland to the other side of the world. Valerio and Pino share a passion for all things cucina Italiana, creating homage to the FOOD they love. The result is La Svolta.

La Svolta keeps it simple, that means traditional! An alluring array of Vera PIZZA Napoletana pizzas - which upon first bite it is easy to be transported to a cobbled Naples laneway where the pizzas are truly AUTHENTIC - perfectly thin and slightly chewy bases are adorned with the finest and FRESHEST INGREDIENTS from both Italy and Australia. Whether pizzas are topped with a simple combination of deep red sugo, the finest fior di latte mozzarella, anchovies and oregano or the POPULAR Mozzarella di Bufala PIZZA with prosciutto di Parma; every PIZZA takes you on an ITALIAN adventure. Move past the pizzas to the classic ITALIAN menu offering an evolving selection of antipasti, primi, pasta, secondi and dolce.

La Svolta compliments the menu with a list of daily specials that are inspired by fresh SEASONAL produce.

The menu honours all corners of 'The Boot' as La Svolta's team comes from regions as diverse as Tuscany, Campania, Venice, Sicily and Emilia Romagna. Practically every meal on the menu has been passed down from Mamma and Nonna, Papa and Nonno and it is this that sets La Svolta apart - the passion with which buonissimo FOOD is prepared.

La Svolta is also at 3-5 Cecil Place, Prahran.
