Lucio Pizzeria

The Lucio is the pizzeria's crowning glory, and its answer to the much-loathed (by pizza chefs) 'half 'n' half'. You really need to see it to believe it, but it's half a Margherita (tomato, mozzarella, baby basil) and half a calzone (just like a pizza only folded), filled with fluffy ricotta and strips of ham. Oh, mama!

Best for A casual, easygoing evening with none of the crazy queuing or attitude of a lot of pizzerias around town. You get friendly service, informed advice on wine and pizza and, best of all, tasty snacks.

What to order The Lucio. Half Margherita with blobs of buffalo mozzarella, tomato and teeny little basil leaves; and half ham and fluffy ricotta calzone (like a pizza only folded in half) – it’s the best of both worlds. It’s also the only acceptable version of the half-n-half, loathed by most self-respecting pizza makers.

Atmosphere Like a little pizzeria in Naples, it’s got a real local feel, down to the outside seating spilling out on to Republic Square.

Extras There’s an exceptional panna cotta on offer as well as some quality Italian quaffers and plenty of outdoor seating.

Get a table Turn up early, or if you’re waiting for a table, head round the corner to East Village or Pocket Bar.

Licensed, around $45pp, including wine.
