“I had no idea Pizza could be soooh fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

I like the occasional pizza and have been to lots of best places in New York but this one was amazing.
It was daunting in scale - too big for the plate - which at first felt off putting but from the first bite was addictive. Incredibly light. The secret is using little yeast apparently. Scoffed the lot and seriously could have had more. Freshness of ingredients was noticeable - learned that you 'need to keep your tomatoes simple'. Lots of specials on blackboard - reason is it has a small kitchen so what is fresh that day dictates lot of what is on offer. My friends had linguine vongole and were equally enthused by this place. Six cousins have got togeteher to open a sister restaurant called +39 (as in Italian dialling code) and that is on my list now. Definitely coming back here. Yum.

“Very Good! But I don't give tips anymore...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

I have been to Pizza e Birra twice and I cannot complain about the food, which is very good! Either Pizza or Calzone are excellent. Dessert is very good also.
They have a good selection of beers; however Holgate on tap which was unavailable.
For sure I would recommend the place to friends and I will visit the place other times.

“Good concept, nicely executed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2011

As a local I've eaten here a few times and enjoyed it on each visit. Food is consistently good and priced well for St Kilda. Artisanal pizzas are a highlight.

Wine list is concise but has many quality options, as well as interesting drops from the mother-country.

My only gripe is (a small one) regarding the beer list. I think Melbourne has come a long way when it comes to beer and we're a lot more sophisticated than we used to be. 'Birra by Holgate' on tap was a nice drop, but apart from that (and Coopers Pale Ale), bottled beers are all lagers. A little disappointing for a place with beer - or birra - in its name. That said, if you're not a beer nerd... you're laughing!
