No need to go without
The well known Ladro Restaurants in Fitzroy and Prahran are doing things differently in these challenging times of closed bars and restaurants, and strict distancing rules. So you can still get your dose of the best pizza on two sides of town. There are a few options to get your fix of pizza and other Italian goodies
On this commemorative weekend why not keep supporting small, local businesses like Ladro, so we can all make it through to the other side of Covid-19! For this year's, very different, ANZAC DAY Ladro has created an ANZAC FOOD PACK so you can break some bread, share a meal and reflect on love, life and people who fought for us all.
There are 2 options; lamb or vegetarian and each pack feeds 2 people x 3 courses.
Packs can be made up for 4, 6, 8, 10 people just let Ladro know when you place your order. Why not pay it forward to someone in need, a frontline worker or maybe just someone needing some Ladro love and it can be delivered within 5 kms of Fitzroy or Prahran between 3-6pm on Saturday or Sunday. Ordering live until 12 noon Sunday 26 April.
ANZAC FOOD PACK $59 Serves 2 people 3 x courses Valued at $75)

2. Delivery - support Ladro's international visa staff, who will deliver on Friday, Saturday & Sundays within the local Fitzroy & Prahran zones. Ladro is doing everything they can to keep them employed since many of them are not able to get back to their home countries.
