We’d been craving an authentic Italian restaurant for a while and when Andrea and the team invited us down to Double Zero Pizza that’s exactly what we got! With the roaring pizza oven, Italian chef and Sicilian Andrea at the helm, Double Zero is definitely a taste of Italy on the Gold Coast. The menu was fantastic, we went for the Parmiggiana di melenzane to start, homemade thick slices of grilled eggplant served with Napoli sauce and grilled mozzarella. The sauce was perfectly balanced and cheesy eggplant is just a dream, anyone who disagrees must have a problem…
We then went for the classic margarita and a gorgonzola and fig pizza. The chef worked his magic, the crust was doughy and light with the base being thin and crispy, the signature of a good Italian pizza.
The salty gorgonzola was balanced amazingly with the sweet figs, a combo I hadn’t tried before, but one I’ll be choosing again soon! The smell of the fresh ingredients and the pizza oven baking away makes the restaurant really warm and cosy. Being just off the Gold Coast Highway, set back from the beach, it’s in a perfect and easily accessible location.

We’d like to thank Andrea and John for their hospitality and the amazing food.
