Usually when I write a review I do it after taking whatever service was being offered for a spin. Normally those services are brick and mortar businesses and you have to go to them. Not so with Gino’s Mobile Pizzeria because Gino comes to you.
Gino’s Mobile Pizzeria Taste Sensation
You may be asking yourself, if I’ve never tried Gino’s pizzas how can I possibly recommend him? The answer really is quite simple. First, Gino is a cousin on my wife’s side of the family. Secondly, Gino used to own a pizza restaurant when I was dating back in the day, some 25 years ago, and Gino used to make the best pizzas I’ve ever tasted.
I’m assuming that making pizza is like riding a bike, once you know how it just stays with you. If anything, as far as making pizzas go, you can only get better as time goes by.
When I bumped into Gino recently he was telling me about his new business. You can check out his Facebook page here.
If you have a function coming up, whether it’s a birthday, engagement or whatever, and you want to do something different for your guests you should consider giving Gino a call. The Brighton Surf Lifesavers club did just that. That’s Gino in the image above, all set up and raring to go.
Once you book him Gino will come to you with his specially constructed wood oven on a 6×4 trailer. Gino will then use all his pizza making skills to make sure that your guests have a great time.

I’m not sure if the menu or prices has changed but I’ve posted one that I pinched from his Facebook page. 😉
So, if you have a function that you would like to have catered why not give Gino a call on 0411263624
It was a beautiful summers day in Adelaide and the wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice Italian style lunch. I’ve been meaning to try out Anthony’s Cucina & Pizzeria for ages as I always drive past on the way to the in-laws. Today we actually stopped for lunch and we were so glad we did.
Anthony’s Cucina & Pizzeria Review
We were actually greeted at the door by Anthony himself, that’s him in the photo above. Having someone greet us in such a pleasant and friendly manner is such a pleasure. Anthony showed us to our table, no we didn’t book, and within a very short time our lovely waitress gave us our menu and took our drink order.
I loved the look of the restaurant with the high ceilings and spacious settings. But lets forget the decor and get down to the food. You can see their menu here. We had Arancini as an entree and it was delicious. Not your normal arancini either as this one was a pumpkin arancini with Taleggio cheese on a bed of truffle aioli.
Now those of you who know me know how much I love my risotto so it was with some trepidation that I ordered the Risotto Zucca! This risotto was a combination of rice (obviously lol) pancetta, roast pumpkin, fresh sage and Parmesan cheese. Without even tasting it I added extra Parmesan because that’s just what I do. What can I say other than I loved it! It was so full of flavour.
The wife’s dish doesn’t actually appear on the menu. Maybe it was part of the house special or something? Anyway you can see it in the image above. It was a spaghetti marinara and I could tell by the look on her face that she was really enjoying it. Which is cool because it’s hard to please a Sicilian when it comes to seafood.
This link will take you to their FaceBook About page which has their address and phone number in case you want to book ahead. I don’t think their email address works so they may want to have a look at that.
Would I go there again? Bloody oath I would.
The other night the kids were off doing their own thing so I said to the wife that we should go out for dinner. She jumped at the chance, not having to cook and all, and we decided to give The Pickled Duck a try.
Upon entering The Pickled Duck we were hit with a muted roar of the patrons who were obviously all enjoying themselves. By the time we were taken to our table I got somewhat accustomed to the noise and, thankfully, we were able to enjoy a conversation without too much trouble.
The modern/industrial decor was quite pleasing and the menu wasn’t that bad. We both decided to try their “Pickled Duck” gourmet burger, which at the time was priced $14.90. The Pickled Duck Burger comprised of pulled spiced duck leg, onion marmalade, lettuce, aioli, and a sweet bun garnished with pickles. Thankfully I also ordered a serve of fries. I say thankfully because while the burger was quite tasty, it wasn’t what I would call satisfying. If it wasn’t for the fries I would have gone home hungry.
The Pickled Duck Burger looked satisfying enough, but after picking it up the burger seemed to condense into a skinny sandwich. It was weird.
While the staff at The Pickled Duck were very friendly it took some time to get to place my order because there was only one girl taking them. Then once I got to place my order I had to line up again to order drinks!! They must have learned this technique from Primo’s! Never liked it there and I don’t like it here either.
On a positive side the meal was delivered promptly.
Would I go back again? Probably as it’s close to home and I won’t mind giving them another try. If you’re thinking of trying them out and order the Pickled Duck Burger, make sure you order something else with it. 😉
