Description: Cargo Bar Pizza Lounge is set in the heart of historic Salamanca Place. Built from Georgian sandstone in the 1830's the original site was used to house grain, wool and apples before being exported around the world. Today this 180 year old building is home to Hobart's premier woodfired pizza and wine bar which incorporates a style and service to inside and outside licensed areas. There is also a take away area for coffee, delicious pizzas, gourmet salads and homemade gelato. The bar theme is based on an old world European concept incorporating style and elegance within a casual environment.

We ordered the Lamb Korma pizza and shared it for lunch. It was beautifully cooked and had beautiful flavours. The service was great and the pizza was cooked reasonably quick. We will definitely eat here again if we ever come back to Hobart!

After walking around Salamanca Markets as well as the adjacent marina, we stopped here for a bite. Staff at bar were very friendly and courteous, and so were the serving staff. We ordered the paella pizza for the two of us. Well, what can I say .... easily the BEST pizza I have ever eaten. Big statement I know, but... More

dined there on the recommendation of a friend who lives locally and was not disappointed. Great place to eat if you want to just eat or run or to stay for a night out. Service was great and staff very friendly

This is situated in Salamanca place and was a great place for a casual meal. Our entree of dips & pizza bread did not disappoint. Not quite full we decided to have the Portuguese prawn pizza....so yummy! We had a Caesar salad to accompany this. Staff were friendly and as for Tassie wine....am now a convert!

We visited here on a Saturday night so it was very popular. They have a great range of wines, beers & cocktails but I went with the wait staff recommendation. There's a good choice of pizza on the menu and was served quicker than expected for how busy they were. Great for people watching too if you sit outside.

Had lunch here during a recent business trip to Hobart. The setting is nice. I had an iced mocha, a warm veggie salad and a small Hawaiian pizza. The iced mocha and salad were both quite nice, but the pizza was very very ordinary.

The pizzas firstly, in my opinion where very basic. A few toppings on extremely crusty bases (when asked for a thicker base), the desert pizza was not worth it. And in total 3 pizzas among 3 people had cost us $75, we waited for a long time and watched as people who has come after us were served before us,... More

A group of us met at Cargo very early on a Saturday night. When we arrived it was of course fairly empty, and therefore quiet, perfect for a catch up. hubby went up to order our drinks, he had a pint of dark ale and I had an alcoholic ginger beer, which to be fair was quite big, maybe a... More
