'The Best Pizza in the world'..... well I have no idea how accurate that statement is but Johnny Di Francesco at 400 Gradi won the title in a global competition.
It was surprisingly easy to get a table at 400 Gradi. We were quite surprised. I thought it would be full with a waiting list down the street.... I guess the locals are used to them being here and we weren't in the middle of the tourist season...
We were seated promptly and the menu was explained. Surprise surprise, we all ordered pizza. The two guys I was with ordered starters, but I knew a pizza would be more than enough for me, and I wanted to have a dessert.
To be fair their pizzas are AMAZING but without having them side by side with all the other amazing pizzas though it is quite hard to decide if this is truly The Best Pizza in the World.... The base was very crispy - just like the Italian ones. If you are a fab of the doughy American style pizza's then these are quite different. The tomato sauce was tasty as was the prosciutto.
400 Gradi is definately worth a visit if you are visiting Melbourne, even if you live in Melbourne they are worth a visit across town. If you live in Melbourne and you haven't tried a pizza at the restaurant that holds the title for the Best Pizza in the World - what are you waiting for ??
