I love trying new food and new restaurants. My other passions are Origami and Pokémon

Recently opened at North Adelaide Village, Pippo specialises in offering Mediterranean cuisine. Service was efficient, with our dishes not taking long to arrive after we have placed our order.

The style of the pizza offered here leans more towards the traditional Italian variety rather than the topping laden variety that is more familiar with Australians. The spicy pork sausage on their Nduja & Potato Pizza packed quite a spicy punch, which was balanced by the plainer potatoes. A scattering of herbs subtly lifted the flavour of the other ingredients. A good way to enjoy the pizza is to spread the pork sausage over your slice before eating it.

Compared to the pork sausage in the Nduja & Potato Pizza, the spiciness of the sopressa in the Sopressa Pizza was a bit milder, with a delectable smoky taste. Chillies reinforced the spicy taste and the fennel had a nice bite to them while imparting a peppery flavour to the pizza. The bases of the pizza had the toasted flavour from being cooked in a wood-fired oven and were thin enough that you can enjoy multiple slices without feeling too full.

For dessert, we decided to order two of their pastries, an Almond Croissant and a Fruit Danish. The pastry of the Fruit Danish was crisp with a delectable buttery taste and the filling had a delightful vanilla flavour. The fresh fruit partnered well with the filling and a dusting of icing sugar gave the pastry an eye-catching appearance.

While we thought the pastry of the Almond Croissant was a bit tough, it still had the same buttery taste as that of the Fruit Danish. The almond filling had the degree of flavour that we expected. It also had a generous topping of slivered almonds to give it the crunchy texture that we consider essential for an Almond Croissant.

Aside from their dinner menu, Pippo also has a breakfast menu during the weekdays and a brunch menu for the weekends. Free off-street parking is available in North Adelaide Village car park.
