One of the restaurants that is part of the cinema complex in Prospect, Anchovy Bandit specialises in serving Italian cuisine. Service was very efficient with our dishes not taking long to arrive after we had placed our order.

The pizzas served here lean towards the Italian variety with thin bases and a few toppings. The fennel sausage used in the Pork Sausage Pizza gave it a delectable savoury taste with a hint of spice and despite using two types of cheese, Fior di Latte and Provolone, did not taste too creamy. Red onions provided a bit of crunch and a scattering of herbs added extra flavour. Their pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven which gave them their distinctive toasted flavour.

Making use of an ingredient not normally seen on pizzas, the slices of Desiree potatoes in the Potato Peel Pie Society Pizza were tender while still retaining a bit of bite. The rosemary and truffle used in the pizza was what gave the pizza its distinctive flavour, the truffle, in particular, gave it a mouth-watering aroma.

The forest mushrooms in the Mushroom Pizza were cooked just right and partnered nicely by the scattering of rocket leaves which also imparted a hint of peppery flavour. If you desire a more filling pizza, you can add prosciutto for a bit of an extra cost. For those that desire to add a bit of spice, chilli oil can be requested.

We liked that the texture of the Sourdough Focaccia was not too dense, with the crust contrasting well with the soft interior. A notable aspect of the dish was it was served with cultured butter that had a taste a bit similar to cheese, salt flakes were also sprinkled over it for a hint of saltiness.

Anchovy Bandit's location makes it a great place for moviegoers desiring Italian food to grab a bite before or after their movie sessions.
