I was excited when I moved to Croydon Park knowing that there was 3 pizza places within walking distance (note; dominos was not included for obvious reasons). Then reality struck! None were woodfire. How could this be? So after a few therapy sessions I began to accept that I would have to drive 10 mins down the road to Haberfield (Napoli in Bocca) to get my monthly fix of woodfired pizza. Then, as if the pizza gods were listening. Boom! Up popped Maranello’s Veloce. A woodfire pizza resturant that is a 3.45min walk! I’m sure the whole neighbourhood heard my scream when I found out about this J

THE “PEOPLES VERDICT”
No reviews yet, as this baby is brand new. If Friday nights are to go by- its chockas!
IT’S REVIEW TIME!
The wait is finally over! Watching the store come together it seemed to take forever. Now open 7 nights a week I can get my pizza fix. So far Mr FYF and I are working through the menu to find our favorite. So far it is the Rucola: (rocket, prosciutto, parmesan and olive oil). The only problem is the extra $4 they want from you is just to add buffalo cheese – a bit steep for cheese I think. If you do get a pizza with prosciutto, ask them to add it at the end (otherwise it dries out and becomes quite tough).

I recommend you trying the cheese pizza as an entrée! It is cheesy-good! Best to share as it can be quite filling. I would skip the garlic bread (it’s just a bread roll thrown in the oven) and go for the cheesy pizza!

I still haven’t managed to find space for dessert yet. I get so excited by the pizzas and forget to leave enough room to devour dessert. However the extra-large containers of Nutella that are displayed out the front do remind me to one day to attempt to pace myself so I can try their dessert menu.
Oh La La- Nutella
