We came back for pizza, but went one step further with the feed me menu this time. Plenty of delicious food, and took home the pizza we couldn’t finish. My favourites tonight were the Buffalo cheese, the pork sausage pizza and the passionfruit panacotta. But the food never disappoints. My kids even tried and loved the potato pizza, which is now an new favourite alongside the traditional Margherita. Easy to book online, and as we had a party of 8 (5 adults, 3 kids, and a pram), got to sit outside on a warm spring night and had the outside to ourselves (the 3 outdoor tables are fixed, so chose your company, or shuffle around, which kids are good at). Friendliest staff, welcoming of kids, observant, and food served in a timely manner. Opens at 5:30pm so good for young families (or cinema goers) for early dinner. Street not too busy so quite relaxing!

Please prepare the food with love as the 2 entrees and 2 pizzas were below par and felt they had been rushed. also it is never nice when you make your guests feel like they have to hurry up and get out. Disappointing as the ambience is great, service also missed a bit. Been proud of your place so we can too

Would have been 5 out of 5, but we tried to order tea and there were no options... I would expect them to have green, peppermint and camomile

Sensational! We could hear each other but ambience was great, we loved the pizzas and desserts. Wines/cocktails were wonderful and staff were friendly but not intrusive. We'd all recommend - some locals and some interstate guests.

Anchovy Bandit has brought a little bit of New York feel to the suburbs with vibrant, bustling atmosphere attentive staff and excellent food. Love the booths and or sitting at the bar and the wine list although small and unique is more than adequate, so would definitely recommend.

Dessert was ABSOLUTELY amazing.
Service was timely, friendly and helpful.

Didn't have any peppermint tea... but other than that - great!

Booking online seemed a good idea. But when the three of us arrived, and they tried to get us to accept what was clearly a table for two, it was nearly over before it started. However, common sense prevailed, and luckily a pair of diners was just finishing their meal and they were able to offer a more suitable table. The service thereafter was good, the food very good, and in spite of the high level of background noise, a good time was had by all.

Waitress probably on her first ever night - never waited so long for a drink on a pretty quiet night but very good pizza crusts and when it finally got to us good Italian wine as well. Italians dont put broccolini on pizza for good reason though! Stick with the traditional not the avant gardeand you won't go wrong. Bombolini also excellent.

A lot of promise in a busy buzzing Saturday night room but let down a little by the food and service. Interesting pizza varieties nice enough but undercooked with a soggy bottom (too much topping maybe?). Sadly only offered one drink throughout the night so only had a glass of wine and would've had probably three if staff had bothered. Shame because it markets itself as a bar! Might try again midweek but there are others doing this better at the moment. Still worth a look tho.

Another great experience in this place off the back of a cinema visit. Packed but they have their service sorted out now and a lovely selection of wine by the glass.

Food quality was excellent. The starters, especially the “big bocconcini” and “damper”- (sorry forgotten what they are called) were quite subtle but delicious and the pizzas were a real contrast, very flavoursome. Only one panna cotta, between 4 of us, another would have been nice. That was the only criticism.
We have been once before where we didn’t book, it was a bit tricky, we sat at the bar and just had pizza, it was still very nice but would definitely recommend the set menu.

I have heard good things about Anchovy Bandit for quite a long time. I travelled 40 minutes just to visit and I wasn't disappointed at all! The food was amazing the portions were large and the service was absolutely amazing. I would recommend to anyone looking for something a little bit different and refreshing!

Food and service absolutely amazing! Some of the best I’ve experienced. Quite a small space though and makes it hard to have a convo when there’s larger, louder groups all around. Overall a great experience. We sat at the bar which was surprisingly good as I enjoyed watching the bar man mixing cocktails all night

Anchovy Bandit is our regular hip pizza eatery before or after a movie at palace cinema. Always guaranteed to enjoy a wood oven pizza from a varied selection of fresh toppings which are perfected in ratio to dough! A good Wine selection and cocktails which are married perfectly with our meals and the dessert selection is rather gorgeous, particularly the bomboloni served warmly hot from the kitchen, dusted with cinnamon sugar, ready to be dipped into fresh lemon curd.... Great atmosphere, always buzzing with people from all ages. Also the staff are ever friendly and whom are always ready to accommodate and have you complete your experience, feeling content and fulfilled and rather joyful.....

We had a wonderful time the meal was fantastic and the service was great. It was a little loud but that didn’t bother us let us focus more on our own conversation. We were sat at the bar my first thought was that wasn’t ideal being date night but it turned out to be very cozy and comfortable. We will certainly be back!

Fantastic pizza and sides. Wood oven bases that compete with the best in town. Great service in a bustling, fun environment. Nice range of beers and by the glass wines too.
