St Domenico Pizza Bar
This pizza joint in Richmond could well have been shipped direct from Italy. St Domenico serves authentic Neapolitan pizza that’s a real contender for the best slice in the neighbourhood.
The Stagioni flour for the hand-stretched dough, along with the specialty cheeses and cured meats (including the hard-to-get San Daniele prosciutto) are all imported from Italy. Alongside the classics, there are gluten-free bases and vegetarian options. There was no space for a wood-fired oven, but instead, St Domenico employs an Italian stone oven, which reaches similar scorching temperatures.
But if you’re not here for pizza, you’re here for the gnocchi, which comes three ways (gorgonzola, pomodoro or pesto) and is handmade on-site. There’s also a lengthy selection of antipasti and salads, plus classic Italian desserts including gelato, tiramisu and sweet calzone.
A retro neon sign hangs alongside a shiny glass cabinet filled with cheeses and hams on display. To drink, there are Italian beers including Peroni and Moretti, and a tight list of offering of Italian wines and a few local options behind the bar.
