Petroccitto family introduces Italian-American pizza to city

YET another new and exciting option in the ongoing narrative in the Brisbane dining scene.

The Petroccitto family has introduced Santa Monica Brisbane to the city, an Italian-American pizza, burger and cocktail bar set to bring a new street-style vibe to the city.

With spring upon us and summer just a heartbeat away, this sidewalk-style dining is most welcome.

A signature pizza oven is the heart of the kitchen to ensure pizzas come at you with speed and celebrated toppings.

Burgers promise everything from the classic to the gourmet.

Pastas, salads, chicken wings, arancini balls, spiced calamari...there is a lot to love on the menu.

Desserts can be enjoyed by themselves, over coffee or as a late-night taster or promise a sweet finish (warm chocolate brownie, cannoli anyone?) to a meal.

Putting paid to the Brisbane adage that breakfast is the new black, Santa Monica opens with an all-day breakfast menu with contemporary classics to new discoveries including Italian baked eggs.

Santa Monica Brisbane, 180 Ann St, open Monday through Friday and Saturday for functions. Telephone: 3221 8350.
