Does Zero95 Make Melbourne’s Best Pizza?

Zero95, the beloved restaurant and pizza bar with locations in Doncaster and Dromana, has been serving up exceptional Italian food to locals for 10 years. Does Zero95 make Melbourne’s best pizza? The suburban gems whisk diners away to Southern Italy with their authentic Italian flavours and warm hospitality and the restaurants should be on everyone’s go-to lists for the best pizzas, pastas and Italian bites, all perfect for sharing.

A Slice of Italy in Melbourne

Zero95 offers a true taste of Italy with undeniably some of the best wood-fired pizzas in Melbourne, made from traditional recipes that have been passed down through generations. In their custom-made pizza ovens imported from Napoli, Zero95’s team meticulously makes their Neapolitan pizzas with the freshest ingredients and then cooks them for a precise 90 seconds, resulting in flavours that keep their customers coming back for more!

Melbourne’s Best Pizzas

While all the pizzas are a must-try, Pizze Classiche (tomato based pizza) highlights are the San Daniele (Rosso Gargano tomatoes, San Daniele prosciutto, buffalo mozzarella & basil pesto), Frutti di Mare (Rosso Gargano tomatoes, mozzarella, rocket & seasonal seafood) and Stromboli (Rosso Gargano tomatoes, mozzarella, Nduja, caramelised red onion, capsicum & olives).

With a section of the media dedicated to Pizza Bianche (white based pizza) highlights include the Amalfi (ricotta cheese, mozzarella, prawns, chilli, parsley & lemon wedge) and Etna (mozzarella, yellow capsicum puree, hot salami, pistachio dust & burrata).

Beyond the Pizzas

Zero95 also offers irresistible food beyond their renowned woodfired pizzas with Stuzzichini (small bites to share) such as Salumi Board (a selection of Italian cured meats and an option to add buffalo mozzarella) and Nonna’s Meatballs (beef meatballs in rich tomato sugo, 4 pieces) and Antipasti (entrées) that include Parmigiana di Melanzane (layers of eggplant, mozzarella, tomato sugo & fresh basil) and Calamari Fritti (dusted in semolina with lime, black pepper, spices and aioli).

Then there’s the Pasta Fresca section that rivals any of the pasta dishes in Melbourne. From the simply perfect Gnocchi Sorrentina (potato gnocchi pan tossed in tomato sugo and served with torn buffalo mozzarella & fresh basil) to the Spaghettini Pescatora al Cartoccio (selection of seafood simmered in rich tomato sugo, touch of garlic and chilli & served wrapped in paper).

Plus, there’s a selection of delicious salads that can be enjoyed as shared sides or on their own. Kids are also well catered for with a delicious section of choices for those 12 and under, making Zero95 ideal for those of all ages.

Desserts to Die For!

For dessert enthusiasts, Zero95 offers an authentic Dolci menu with highlights such as Warm Date & Amaretti Pudding (served with butterscotch sauce and vanilla bean ice cream), Sicilian Cannoli (with house-made ricotta dipped in chocolate and pistachio) and the classic Tiramisu, providing the perfect sweet ending to the meal.

Well Priced Wines in Melbourne Restaurants

To accompany Zero95’s food menu, there is a curated selection of Italian and Australian wines with almost all available by the small or larger glass, carafe or bottle. And with the bottles of wine averaging around $45, there’s every reason to toast.

And, of course there are choices of cocktails, beers, hot drinks and Affogato so everyone is satisfied.

From Sicily to Suburbia

The 095 area code, representing a small town with a storied culinary history in Catania, Sicily, serves as the cornerstone of Zero95’s ethos. Founded by four Italian boys with a passion for food and their heritage, Zero95 pays tribute to their familial roots by using traditional recipes passed down through generations. With a dedication to authenticity and quality, Zero95 brings the flavours of Sicily to the suburbs of Melbourne, serving up the Italian dish and pizza perfection that Doncaster and Dromana locals love and those further afield should travel for.
