Friggitoria Italian Street Food

In Italy, a Friggitoria is a place that sells fried food. These shops are most commonly found in Naples, where they often sell Arancini, Calzone, Panelle and Pizza Fritta. There is also one right here in Sydney, which unsurprisingly is called Friggitoria.


The eatery is the brainchild of chef Flavio Tosolini from Fourth Village Providore in Mosman. Here at Friggitoria, he is currently serving fried snacks like calamari and pizza fritta that can be eaten at the venue or taken away. Open to 10pm daily, this place is perfect for lunch, dinner or even a late-night snack, and the food is designed to be either taken away or you can eat on one of the tables inside. On this visit, we decided to have dinner inside.

To start with, we had the Pizza Fritta, which is a soft fried pizza with cherry tomatoes sauce and parmesan as well as the crispy garlic bread. Both of these street food-inspired appetisers were delicious and filling but not too filling that we couldn't eat the mains.

Along with the street food, Friggitoria is also serving up pasta from the Pasta Bar. There are a number of different types of pasta to choose from including Spaghetti, Penne, Tortellini, Potato, Gnocchi and Tagliatelle. There is also a number of sauces including Napoletana, Arrabita, Puttanesca, Carbonara, Polpette, Marinara and Norma. We decided on Carbonara and Arrabita, which were both delicious and hit the pasta craving perfectly!

After finishing the pasta, I liked the idea of dessert as there was Cannoli and Tiramisu on the menu but there was just no way I could have fit anything more in. Although I didn't mind, as it means it's the perfect reason to go back again so we can try out the desserts!

Your Comment
A very wide variety (especially the sauces) for street food. Let's hope the trend takes off in other Australian cities.
