This popular Dutton Park pizza joint moved to Woolloongabba in 2020, because brother-and-sister owners George and Danielle Diacos knew they needed a bigger space. Now, Little G is in the space that used to house Corella.
On first look, the new digs are a total change of pace for Little G. The Dutton Park restaurant was so old-school and poky the Diacoses had to cut a hole in the wall to make room for their pizza oven. By contrast, those who visited Corella will remember it as a modern and moody space, with slate, copper and wooden finishes. The Diacoses have kept the fancy fit-out but carefully lightened the atmosphere with a bunch of plants, olive trees and the Little G menu projected on the wall.
What hasn’t changed is Little G’s neat menu of pizzas, arancini and rotating Mediterranean-inspired specials such as chermoula lamb ribs and the restaurant’s popular fried chicken. Pizzas include margherita; prosciutto and pear; hot salami with pickled red onion and stracciatella; and mixed mushroom with truffle. All are made with Australian low-protein 00 flour and cooked in George’s “lucky-charm” Moretti Forni stone-based pizza oven, which has been hauled down the hill from Dutton Park.
For drinks, Little G now backs up its house-made lemonade and ginger beer with a clutch of craft beers and a neat collection of small-producer wines such as Jumpin’ Juice riesling and Brothers Koerner grenache.
