Welcome to Queen Margaret of Savoy

At Queen Margaret of Savoy, they proudly display their pizza making ingredients upon the restaurant shelves. There is Ranieri Extra Virgin Olive Oil, sacks of Eden Vale Biodynamic Flour (with gluten free options available) and tins of Del Cecco tomatoes.

In fact, much has been made of the decor at this stylish eatery.
Exposed, black, industrial pipes hold dim lights against white walls, the ceilings are dark with square downlights, and 
the entry to the kitchen has been decorated with the entire facade of an old weatherboard house.

Despite its elegance, Queen Margaret is an accessible, family friendly venue. They have a children's menu which includes a scoop of ice-cream with any order and while I was there, an observant waitress offered colouring-in materials to one child who was patiently waiting for her parents after finishing her meal.

8232;For adult diners there are of course a range of treats, beginning with a magnificent selection of pizzas. Honouring their namesake, Queen Margaret of Savoy lists not one, but three versions of the classic Margherita pizza. The 'Queen Margaret I', with fior di latte cheese, the 'Queen Margaret II', made with buffalo mozzarella and the 'Queen Margaret III' that has mozzarella and parmigiano.

8232;Among the more gourmet selections, there are beautifully described creations like the 'King of Scotland' pizza with 'smoked salmon, tomato, mascapone, capers, mozzarella, red onion and mesclun' ($17.00) or the 'Sock it to Me' with 'tomato, hot salami, mozzarella, olives and roasted peppers' ($17.00)

The wine listing is limited but it is no loss when you see how well they specialise in an extensive range of crafted beers; Stone and Wood Larger, White Rabbit Dark Ale, Moo Brew Yeasty Beer, Bridge Road Pale Ale, and Boatrocker Pilsner to name a few.

The worst thing about Queen Margaret, is that being so overfull from eating pizza, you might not get the opportunity to sample desserts but then again, takeaway is available so, perhaps you can ask for them to pack some up for you to go.
