A lockdown obsession for Rinaldo Di Stasio and Mallory Wall, Di Stasio Pizzeria is poised to open in Carlton in mid-November. The third venue for the high-profile restaurateur couple sits behind the King and Godfree complex on the corner of Lygon and Faraday streets and has glamorous echoes of their Di Stasio Citta pleasure palace in the city. Designed by architect Di Ritter of Hassell, also responsible for Citta, the pizzeria has three separate spaces inside, adorned with Reko Rennie artwork and Shaun Gladwell sculptures, and a courtyard bar centred around a fountain imported from the Roman countryside. Chef Federico Congiu, who has worked with Di Stasio for five years, is making his own jersey milk mozzarella fiore di latte for the pizzas. Congiu has sourced five growers around the Yarra Valley to grow and preserve San Marzano tomatoes for pizza toppings and is having special durum wheat flour milled in Tamworth.

    Staff were amazing and had no issues at all with us bringing our pram into the courtyard. Lovely to sit out there and I would definitely recommend it. Pizza was delicious but unfortunately the pasta weren’t as good, plenty of flavour but too rich. Overall the restaurant has lots of potential and I bet with the right dishes would be great.

    This was my second time at Di Stasio and i was appalled by the service and the food. I was seated at 6:45pm and ordered my entrees, we had finished our entrees, and didn’t receive our mains for another 40 minutes, my partner had to ask the waitress for an update on our mains. She said that “food will be on its way” we ended up not receiving our mains until 8pm, we asked the waitress for the bill and she was doing other jobs to make us stay, we had an event to attend to which we had to cancel our food and leave. I will not be returning back to that restaurant, also $15 for bottled water is ridiculous. It is too over priced and ended up spending $54 on two entrees.

    Food was amazing! Service was good although there were times we felt pushed and rushed (understanding during busy times this can happen) The real issue was the water charge. We weren’t advised there would be one ever. I asked for ‘normal water’ and was extremely shocked to see I was charged for it. Nobody advised us that we would be charged for water. I believe you should advise customers there will be a charge. That was a very unpleasant surprise and something I’ve never experienced. I fine done quite a bit and almost every time I am advised of the water charge. I feel a bit robbed like scammed into it.

    We had a really wonderful evening. The staff were friendly and attentive at all times. The food was delicious and consistent for us all. One tiny recommendation… it was a very cold night and we felt the room was little bit cold. Just a small thing, but it would help the ambience. We loved our time…thank you.

    Great atmosphere, great food, great drinks and great service. What more can you ask for? Staff were super attentive and always ready to help. Food is amazing, the carbonara was delicious as was the pizza. Extensive wine list makes a pairing for anything and the cocktails were great and they aren’t afraid to give you your fair share of alcohol within them. Definitely try the mousse and dessert cake for dessert to finish the night off right!

    Lovely place and the food was good. However there seemed to be poor lighting where we sat and couldn't read the menu as it was a little dark.
