About Farina 00

Farina 00 is the home of woodfired pizza in Melbourne’s Northcote. Located on St Georges Road, just a short walk from Batman Park, Farina 00 takes its name, we suspect, from the 00 flour that traditional Roman pizzas demand. While this restaurant is known as the neighbourhood’s best Italian pizzeria, there’s more than just the classic pies being fired up in the kitchen. A good range of authentic antipasti and main courses, desserts, a non-condescending kids’ menu (little palates can be just as gourmet!), and oven-fresh foccacia are also available.

More about Farina 00, Northcote

It’s difficult, but we’re going to leave Farina 00’s famous pizzas to one side for now. The consolation prize is that we get to hover over this Northcote neighbourhood Italian restaurant’s menu in other delicious ways. Entrees here include pungent arancini made with black truffle, porcini and parmesan, and a fantastic antipasto platter stacked with cured meats, Italian cheeses, olives and marinated vegetables. A wonderfully down-to-earth but humbly luxuriant selection of authentic and inventive Italian main courses underlines the notion that Farina 00 is one of the best Italian trattoria-style restaurants in Melbourne, though it’s endearingly quiet about it. Spinach and ricotta ravioli come served with burnt butter and sage, while the crispy pork belly is paired with an apple and balsamic reduction, while the gnocchi gorgonzola offers homemade gnocchi with a genius pairing of the strong Italian cheese and roasted walnuts.

What you’ve probably been waiting for is a rundown on what Farina 00 is perhaps most well-known for, both in its home turf of St Georges Road in Northcote and by Melbourne pizza fanatics on the look out for the city’s best Italian discs. Farina 00 uses a traditional stone, wood-fired pizza oven of the sort mandated by the True Roman Pizza Association (no kidding) to turn out a menu stacked with delicious pizza pies. Classics ranging from the humble margherita and marinara to more elaborate Italian classics like the capricciosa meet modern (and to some blasphemous) variations like the Mexicana and the Aussie favourite pizza supreme. Ratcheting up the opulence, Farina 00 also do a long line in gourmet pizzas, with the Farina 00 Special heavy with ingredients like mozzarella, Atlantic salmon, tiger prawns, citrus fennel, and garden peas. Farina 00’s cosy restaurant, warmed and perfumed by the pizza oven, is the perfect place for a romantic rendezvous or a get together with friends. Book now!
