HOME OF THE
STYLE PIZZA IN
To our valued customers,
From June 1 we will be closing the pizzeria. However we'll remain in operation, opening for functions.
We'll be taking some time off to work on our new venture, so watch this space!
We would like to thank all of you for your support over the years. With each bite you made this pizzaolo's dream a reality.
We also want to extend our deepest gratitude to our staff, who have been on this journey with us.
A Slice Of Rome is a Roman Style Pizzeria in the heart of Thornbury.
Established in 2020, A Slice Of Rome aims to introduce Pizza al taglio
(pizza by the slice - the traditional street food of Rome) to Melbourne
combining centuries of culinary tradition and innovation.
The high hydration and 96 hour fermentation combined with a two step baking
process results in a honeycombed, blistery crust and delicious airy centre that
showcases the free seasonal ingredients on the top.
Pizzas are freshly baked every day on trays then sold by the slice.
THE PIZZA MAKER

If you are from Melbourne and love wood fired pizza then you know Frank.
He is one of the most successful pizza makers in Australia's culinary capital and since 2012 his Neapolitan
Style Pizzeria "Il Pizzaiolo" has been a staple of Melbourne's pizza scene.
Frank is not only a successful owner but like all artisans a constant learner.
After years of study and research, Frank is proud to introduce A Slice Of Rome, his new concept that elevates
the traditional street food of Rome into a new and contemporary culinary experience.
