Red Gum Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta

 

THE VIBE

One of a handful of shops on this stretch of Highbury Road, this feels like a haven for smart locals.

THE DECOR

Clean and neat, with room for a few eat-in diners. The wood-fired oven adds authenticity.

THE CROWD

It’s quiet about noon on a Thursday, but things will no doubt start hotting up (literally) as dinnertime draws closer and the oven gets a workout.

THE FOOD

Pizza is the drawcard, with faves such as the margherita and original creations. We love the light, crisp crusts and moreish toppings of prawns, pesto and parmesan on the Red Gum, and the mozzarella, marinated tomato and homemade meatballs on the Mama’s Meatballs.

THE DRINK

The fridge stocks soft drinks to grab when you pick up your order.

THE VERDICT

Your go-to for a lazy lunch or munchies for home movie night.
