27 Aug Toto’s Pizza, Richmond
Toto’s, the oldest pizza restaurant in Australia, has been expanding. From its origins in Carlton, it’s grown to include a small place in South Melbourne, and now one on Bridge Road. The Richmond branch is more of a takeaway place than a full restaurant, but there are still a handful of seats to dine at, and the warm lighting and wooden tables keep things casual.
The menu encompasses traditional pizza, as well as healthy and gourmet varieties, salads, sides and desserts. From the healthy pizza range comes the Chicken Pesto Spinaci, featuring both Napoli sauce and pesto, mozzarella cheese, kalamata olives, onion, marinated chicken breast and baby spinach. There’s also the Pescatore, topped with Napoli sauce, mozzarella cheese, anchovies, tiger prawns, scallops and mussels. The seafood is particularly fresh, the scallops being impressively plump, and the side of chicken wings are similarly juicy. For dessert you might have Nutella-packed calzone, which is freshened up by vanilla ice cream.
With the quality ingredients used in its toppings, Toto’s presents a decent option for your pizza cravings, and they deliver too.
