“Best Italian pizza”
Review of Pizzateca

Pizzateca
Ranked #2 of 58 Restaurants in McLaren Vale
Price range: US$23 - US$49
Description: Established in 2016. Vera : true pizza. Neapolitan style. Thin with a soft airy crust. Made by hand the traditional way. No rolling pins. Pizza : Fired in our wood oven made by the famous Stefano Ferrara in Napoli, Italy. The birthplace of Vera pizza. Oztalia : We continue to evolve from when our family first arrived to Australia from Italy. We use the techniques passed down from generation to generation with locally sourced South Australian ingredients. We are proud of this. Our sugo is made by the hands of the family, using South AustralianVirginia grown tomatoes. More than pizza: The Mitolo family came to South Australia from the Italian region of Abruzzo. Famous for Arrosticini. These skewers of lamb are cooked simply over charcoal. Meat deserves charcoal and salt. That is all.

By far the best pizza I have had in Australia and it would be in my top 5 in the world I had pizzas in Italy and the states and this place is up there with the best we had a Margherita and the salami pizza they where both so good we shared half of each not a slice of each, it's the best place to spend a Sunday afternoon with the music the great staff so good !!! and then to top off the tiramisu was to die for, what a dish then if your lucky you get to have the homemade limoncello. Real italian food made by a family that loves what it does

Forget pizza with pineapple, barbecue sauce and chicken. You will not find that here. What you will find is life changing Italian pizza made with so much love and passion it is literally going to up your pizza standards forever. Everything for these pizzas is sourced from Italy (tomatoes, flour, even water for the dough) so the authenticity is key. Do yourself a favour and have the truffle pizza because it is literally the best pizza I have ever had (having travelled Italy a number of times). Also do yourself a favour and have the tiramisu (OMG) so delish! And if they have their homemade limoncello hit that up because it's beautiful. Awesome venue, really really cool vibe and wow what a beautiful family. Every single one of the staff members were amazing, not to mention typical Italian warm and welcoming.
