Cuisine: Italian, Pizza
Location: Victoria Park, Albany Hwy
I happened to be out shopping in Vic Park and was feeling pretty hungry so I decided to place a takeaway order to Brando’s Pizzeria Cafe while shopping. By the time I paid for my shopping and walked down the road, it was a short wait to pick up my order and then had to tolerate the delicious wafting smell of the food in the car ride home.
I ordered the spinach ravioli in a napolitana sauce ($24), a large pizza ($22), and some cannoli. Depending on what you order (the specials on the website is outdated), you get certain specials – mine had a discount and a small garlic bread chucked in. After dumping the shopping it was time to turn on the footy and sit down to some pizza.
I dug in with the first bite. The cheese had melted and became a bit like a paste, trapping the salty bacon and spicy pepperoni. The mushrooms were nice and juicy and I loved the tomato base, just bursting with freshness and flavour. The garlic also shines through in this sauce and the base is thin and tasty. Of course I’m eating this after a ride home in the car, so eaten freshly prepared would be much better but this was still tasty.
The ravioli was plenty, immersed in a light tomato sauce. Each ravioli presented a good flavour, soft pasta, and the sauce added enough flavour in amongst the spinach and the soft ricotta cheese filling. The Parmesan sprinkled on top adds a different touch of saltiness and flavour to the dish. It kept on getting better with each bite.
I also couldn’t go past dessert so some cannoli was definitely on the list. This version had a delicious custard filling encased by a crunchy pastry with a slight sprinkle of sugar for sweetness.
Brando’s Pizzeria Cafe Food Review Summary
Verdict: Brando’s is open 7 days a week and been going since 1993. They offer breakfast on the weekends and the menu contains a range of pizzas to choose from as well as mains. I got a takeaway order of the Brando’s special large pizza (other sizes available) and I really enjoyed the freshness and flavour of the tomato sauce. I think it helped make the pizza. The thin base was lovely as too were the toppings. Pretty tasty pizza. I also enjoyed a spinach and ricotta ravioli which had a lovely light tomato sauce and a sprinkle of Parmesan for extra flavour. I also grabbed a delicious cannoli for dessert.
Price: Reasonable (Entertainment Book holders can enjoy a discount when dining in only)
Recommendation: Worth Visiting Again
