Dig into gourmet pizzas at The Burrow, West End

Dig into gourmet pizzas at The Burrow, West End

Pietro Agnoletto ran the infamous The Pizza Caffé at UQ’s St Lucia campus for 15 years. Renowned for its thin-crusted, traditional Neapolitan pizzas, hungry students and theatre-goers alike have drooled over Pietro’s superb doughy creations. Now Pietro is lending his pizza crafting knowledge to the team at new West End haunt The Burrow.

Serving up authentic Italian pizzas – the recipes stemming directly from the home of pizza, Naples – off-beat beers and ciders, and a divine drop of coffee, The Burrow is already a hot spot among locals.

Sneaking open the doors last week, the owners (couples Alan & Sarah and David & Noni) have been overwhelmed with the response. With long wooden tables shaved down from whole trees, a focus on sharing gourmet pizzas and hand-drawn chalk ‘art’ by kids on the wall-length blackboards, The Burrow has a real community feel.

There’s even a pizza straight from the menu of previous restaurant Ottoman – featuring Turkish-style slow-cooked lamb, spinach, mushroom, capsicum and mozzarella – which is a dedication to the owner Shevki, who built the front porch area of the restaurant with his bare hands. And The Burrow also make its own smoky barbecue relish and aioli (apparently the chips are a must order).

A place for shelter and comfort, burrow into this den of pizza dreams for a Vanilla Cider Spider and afternoon chats with friends.
