Satisfy those Pizza cravings at this South Melbourne Italian RestaurantSep 2, 2019


A charismatic escape away from the hectic streets of South Melbourne, Mister Margherita is the kind of restaurant you can expect to see a chef making a pizza whilst singing along to That’s Amore.

The outside light infiltrates through the windows, which brightens and fills the space during the day, and creates a moody, atmospheric vibe at night time. A red neon Pizza sign at the front hypnotizes you to come in and try their delicious pizza. Tables, benches and a seated cushioned lounge fill the open space and allows for guests to surround themselves in others’ company whilst dining on plates of food that oozes colours, aromas and flavours.

As cheesy as it sounds (but so is their Pizza) their food is served with pinch of charisma, a dollop of charm and a tablespoon full of passion. After three months of experimentation before opening their doors, Mister Margherita perfected and crafted a diverse range of dishes that encapsulate their passionate and enthusiastic approach to food, which definitely delivers in the flavour department.

Dish after dish after dish after dish, it was beginning to feel like an Italian relative that continuously kept serving plate after plate and telling you to, “Mangia! Mangia!” and doing this in order to show their love and talent for hosting.

Additionally, their tagliatelle swirls and twirls upon an organic speckled plate and is elegantly decorated with a beautiful mixture of colourful condiments. When serving us this dish, Mister Margherita himself sprinkled an elegant concoction of lemon zest, parsley and Parmesan cheese on top of my lamb Ragu tagliatelle.

Here, he also told us a secret, he said, “The best dishes are made with three condiments and enables you to taste each ingredient”. Evidently, their dedication and passion for food is emulated through their use of fresh ingredients, a fundamental understanding and profound love for hearty Italian cuisine.

Mister Margherita then proceeded to then tell us that, “If you order a lamb dish, you obviously want to taste the lamb” and I couldn’t agree more. This knowledge is exemplified through the lamb which was slow cooked for six hours and makes the lamb the protagonist of the dish.

Mister Margherita’s pasta melts in your mouth and creates a gorgeous base for the rich, juicy lamb, the sweet explosion of the tomato sauce and crunchy blast of flavour from the crispy celery which also works to balance the hearty, 6 hour, slow cooked lamb.  I mean he wasn’t dubbed Mister Margherita for nothing.

With warm tones of reds, yellows and brown, their 11’’pizza is a painterly depiction of a passionate food affair. Mister Margherita even Cooks the pizza in such a way that allows for the dough to cook evenly and comes together to create a beautiful, enchanting pizza pie – now that’s amore. It definitely goes to show that Mister Margherita knows a thing or two about how to make the best Pizza in town! It is also very important to note that Happy Hour is on Friday, from 2pm to 6pm with $5 house beer.
