Red Gum Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta
- 431 Highbury Road, Burwood East
- 9887 9566
One of a handful of shops on this stretch of Highbury Road, this feels like a haven for smart locals.
Clean and neat, with room for a few eat-in diners. The wood-fired oven adds authenticity.
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.
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 fridge stocks soft drinks to grab when you pick up your order.
Your go-to for a lazy lunch or munchies for home movie night.
