Voted Best Pizza in Brisbane & home of the metre long Pizza
In 1993, a Brisbane couple known as Franco & Rita Silvestri opened the Arrivederci Pizzeria Al Metro located on Park Road in Milton. It was the first of its kind for Brisbane with the introduction of pizza by the metre – that's right, you read that correctly! The business is still around and thriving today, plus it has stayed strong to its family-orientation by the ownership being sold in 99' to David Silvestri, Franco & Rita's son.

The metre-long pizza was first introduced on the Gold Coast in southern Queensland, but thanks to the Silvestri family there is now a 'Brisbanites' go-to for a degustation of pizza, pasta and Italian cuisine. The restaurant is located in the European influenced Park Road, Shop 1/1, in Brisbane's suburb of Milton. Arrivederci Pizzeria brings to the suburb a sense of uniqueness and diversity, teamed with incredibly tasty Italian food.
If you're a soccer fan as well, you will absolutely love the spirited enthusiasm and association that Arrivederci has for the sport. The big games in the Soccer world are played in the restaurant on their big TV screens, which always draws a massive crowd of soccer and pizza-lovers alike. Not only is the restaurant adorned with excited fans and supporters, but the owners have also decorated the entire interior with teams from around the world. If you wish to bring the family or friends to watch the next game, make sure to call and book your place early as the restaurant is always packed out.
The food at Arrivederci, really has to be seen and eaten to appreciate the full flavours of Italian cuisine.
