Last year the festival followed a competition format, where twelve resturants were tried and tested until a winner (La Svolta) was announced. This year the organisers have decided to scrap the competition and instead, showcase some of Melbourne's finest and tastiest pizzas whilst sharing with the public their love for authentic Italian-style pizzas. Their message is clear: "to develop an appreciation for good pizza is to try as many as possible". Therefore each restaurant was selected for their commitment to authenticity and high quality. I must admit, I already have high expectations.
