Best Pizzas in the centre of Canberra?

By Kim F - 10 November 2012 25

Opinions please!

Won’t be too bad if other parts of our town are mentioned but I am really interested in the city.

What’s Your opinion?

Has Plaka Pizza/Restaurant opened back up again somewhere yet? They were the best.

Firestone in Dickson makes some pretty kick-ass pizza. I know it’s not exactly the city, but assuming you’re driving it’s only 5 minutes away, and if you’re one of the poor few who rely on ACTION then Civic to Dickson is probably the best serviced route in the city.

Try Ostani at The Realm in Barton.
Very nice pizzas. Virtually as good as what you get in Italy.

We like Pizza Gusto in Lonsdale Street, they are only open from 5.30 Wed thru Saturday but their wood fired pizzas are great.

I know that this is not apropos your question, but as an aside the population centre of Canberra is not exactly in Civic, it is actually somewhere near the edge of LBG in Yarralumla. As Gungahlin relentlessly expands (and Banks/Gordon contract) the population centre is marching northwards at a rate of about half a metre a day.

I get your point though, we often refer to Civic as Canberra’s centre.

Debacle in Lonsdale st Braddon, followed by Pizza Gusto across the road. APK is okay, it’s been a while since I was last there though.

Oh dear! I think, just think, I can agree with Henry BG…

But tragically, I’ve never been to Italy (outside Rome airport). So what would I know?

Poco, I suppose.

Yeah, I can second Debacle as having decent pizza. While I’m at it, I’ll recommend it as a place to get pissed in broad daylight.

Firestone is good except I recall getting in an argument with my friends after getting ripped off in the pizza department.

If you’re willing to put up with the service. Debacle is the only time I have ever actually had a problem with any waitress anywhere. We went for a work lunch there, she brought out all of the meals except for one, figured that she’d bring the next out last. When she came out empty handed and went to serve another table we waived her over and asked politely if the Chicken was still on it’s way out. She responded with an extremely abrupt “Well I only have two bloody hands” and stalked off.

Pizza Gusto is my current favourite near the city too.

Yep – steer clear of the Zeffirelli thieves. Oh, and besides being thieves, their kitchen is filthy.

You reckon? I’ve had crap pizza there at Ostani – several times, so I didn’t fluke a bad one (it’s convenient by day) – but I order anything BUT pizza now. All dough, barely any topping ingredients (even by classic italian pizza standards), and a ridiculous wait each time.
