Baby Pizza & Cafe

Baby Pizza is part of the Chin Chin and Kong family. The eccentric cafe is located in Richmond right opposite Top Paddock. It ticks off all the boxes for cool, hip, funky setting with creative and good food. Baby Pizza has been open for awhile but it always got me curious as to why it didn't receive the same hype as it's sister stores, Chin Chin and Kong. I read reviews and it all rated the place to be average but I prefer to try things myself so I ventured there for dinner with D.

We got there around  8.45pm on a Saturday night so we got a table without any issues.


We decided not to eat ourselves silly (for once) and just got 2 pizza and a salad to share. 


First pizza was the malanzine, this had eggplant, buffalo mozzarella, basil, cherry roma tomatoes and chilli served with a fior de latte cheese. The pizza base was nice and thin and had just the right amount of topping to 
not have the base too soggy.





Second pizza was the polpette which was a meatballs pizza. It also came with san marzano tomatoes, chilli, basil and pecorino. The intensity of the pecorino was good match to the meatballs. 


As a side we got the cavolo e pieselli salad which came with cabbage, peas, chilli, raddish and parmesan. This was a huge salad, it was quite and relied on the parmesan for taste, I found there wasn't enough on it but once we asked for more, it was perfect. It was lovely and refreshing, went well with the pizza to balance out all the heaviness. 


Instead of a dessert I opted for their granita drink of the day which was apple. Light and refreshing. D went with a tomato juice mix.


Overall 16/20 I think it hits the right spots for me. The menu has a wide range of selection and good choices with your non conventional traditional Italian menu. I am looking forward to going back and trying more things on the menu.
