About Ladro

Ladro located in Fitzroy offers function rooms for small to larger events. Free venue hire is available and they can cater for cocktail events, seated dinners, wedding receptions, and corporate functions. Ladro is best known for its pizza but is also a great Melbourne Bar. 

Melbourne’s beloved Italian restaurant, Ladro, offers much more than just pizza; it also caters to events, large or small, day or night. Located in Fitzroy, Ladro has a wide variety of options for functions with free venue hire. Both restaurants provide fully catered sit down and cocktail style events for large and small groups. Whether an event is north-side or south-side, Ladro has both sides of the Yarra covered. Ladro’s menu includes traditional Italian favourites and sources three forths of its ingredients locally. Ladro is best known for its award-winning pizza but also cooks up classic Italian dishes like spaghetti bolognese and risotto just the way Nonna used to make them.

Both owners of Ladro have a design background so they understand the importance of how an event looks and feels. Ladrois built around minimal simplicity making them the perfect place for a special event. Providing blank canvases for event planners to create a unique atmosphere for their function. Event space at Ladro is flexible and aims to create a stress-free environment. From corporate functions to christenings, birthdays to bar/bat mitzvahs and weddings to wild bucks nights. Ladro has all of the tools to pull an event together.

Ladro Prahran comfortably seats up to 115 people in the entire venue or up to 65 in the main dining room and 50 in the courtyard. Cocktail events can fit up to 200 individuals utilising both spaces or up to 30 guests on the terrace, 30 on the bar, 150 in the main dinning room, and 75 in the courtyard. At Ladro Prahran the celebrations don’t have to stop at midnight. Their unique 24-hour liquor license lets guests dance and drink until the sun comes up.

If you love Ladro’s food but cannot make it to Fitzroy or Prahran for your big day, Ladro will bring the food to you.

    Ladro Mondays: You Drink So They Can Eat

    Need an excuse to have a few drinks on a Monday night? BYO Mondays allow diners to drink their fill guilt free. Break out a bottle of your favourite wine and the $5 corkage fee will be donated to charity.

    A bottle of wine can be savoured even more knowing you are supporting your community with every sip. Proceeds from Ladro Fitzroy will go to Saint Vinnies Vannies Soup Van and pennies from Ladro Prahran will go to Prahran Mission’s Christmas Lunch.

    Let us know ahead of time your BYO tipple & we can create a menu matched to your bottles of wine. For larger groups, we’ll fire up a spit roast (beast of choice!) to complement your drop. 

    If you prefer beer, try our new house red ale ‘Birrai Bufala’ with our fresh tradition Italian dishes: hand made pasta with ox tongue tortellini, spanner crab tagliolini & gnocchi alla norma.
