Pizzeria Violetta is a celebration of Naples; the original home of Neapolitan (denominazione di origine controllata) pizza. Renowned for pizza with charred and blistered crust and a soft and elStic center, a true Napoli flavour.

Using the highest quality 00 flour, the dough is hand stretch, before cooking it in a Stefano Ferarra wood fire oven - blazing at 400 degrees - for just 90 seconds.

This traditional cooking method is dictated by the Verace Pizza Napoletana, originated from Napoli in 1788.

Enjoyed our meal at Violetta--good pizzas (esp the GF crust) and great salads! The wines are good value, which is much appreciated.

Great Pizzeria with awesome Pizza! Really nice ambiance to the place and it good to be able to see your pizza being made. Pizza was very tasty, not overloaded with toppings and it had that great wood fired taste.

The service is great, the food was good, we had the betroot salad, primavera pizza, calamari and tiramisu. The calamari was the best.
We were sitting outside and found the chairs and table a bit uncomfortable.

Appears to have changed management and no longer impressed with the service - waiter was rushed and non caring, cleared table while people were eating, spoke too quickly, also served unlabelled wine and was unable to tell any information about the brand or alcohol content etc. Had to also get our own menus and request water and salt and pepper for the table. The food was still nice but service had decreased significantly since our last visit last year.

The restaurant was full and I mean full of flies. The wine was hot. The food greasy
The air conditioner was not on. This is Brisbane. Who has a restaurant without air
Not a good evening

Lovely pizza’s in a pleasant environment but how about continental background music in stead of bland pop. It would add to the Italian atmosphere.

I will certainly go again.

Food was terrific and the wine was perfectly paired. Bonus: if you sit outside you get to watch people attempt reverse parallel parking.

We love the food here! Best pizza in Australia. We’ve tried many pizzeria’s in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney and this is the most authentic and delicious.
The staff are wonderful, very attentive without being overbearing. It’s a pleasure Not having to compete with any mobile phones to get attention.
Our go to place for a treat.

Nice restaurant. Outside - lovely. Food just ok. Bases soggy and I prefer a little more flavour and punch in my pizza. Different toppings like pear, rocket and blue cheese and pumpkin, goats cheese and rocket would be nice. Service bad. Not enough staff. Lovely waitress but just under too much pressure to do her job properly

Service was quite slow. Pizzas brought out before the entree and were kept warm - hence not crispy. Food is excellent.

I usually love it here, but on this occasion it fell a little short of a great night out. One chef in particular was very excessively noisy and banging things (far from the ordinary fun/busy ambience and clatter of this restaurant), and was also speaking down to and loud/aggressive toward another member of staff, directly behind us in the back of the kitchen. It was also a very quiet night at the restaurant yet, as a party of 5, we were ushered to a small table in the back when there was 2 larger and more suitable tables available during the time we dined. The meals were fantastic, as usual, however. Other than a rather disappointing change of staff, from every other time we’ve dined here, Violetta still delivers.

Authentic and very tasty Italian pizzeria reminding me of great ones I visited in Tuscany, Florence and Rome. Superb friendly service and a menu that is interesting and not too long. Great European wines by the glass to compliment the food. A+

The pizza's here are brilliant and the quality unquestionable. For a family local dining, I feel the cost is a touch over done.

I nice cosy restaurant for everyday dining. Not really for small children, as it is very small and outside the is a semi busy road. Great pizza's though!!
