Tuesday, 13 December 2016:
Free pizza alert! Queensland’s biggest pizza giveaway will take place at Brisbane’s iconic Eagle Street Pier this Friday, 16 December when Fratelli Famous Pizzeria makes its debut in the Sunshine State.
Fratelli Famous, the fast-casual spin-off of the popular Sydney and Melbourne Italian eatery Fratelli Fresh, will give away 500, build-your-own pizzas from midday on Friday when it fires up its custom-built pizza oven for the first time.
The feel-good Friday giveaway marks the start of parent company Rockpool Dining Group’s expansion in Queensland, which is the largest growth market for the business as it looks to double in size in the next 24 months.
With a supercharged pipeline of Fratelli Famous Pizzerias and other fast-casual diners planned for Queensland, Rockpool Dining Group is leading the charge into what is expected to become Australia’s fastest growing dining sector over the next five years. Premium and casual restaurants are also part of the Group’s expansion plans for the state.
Opening just in time for the festive holiday, Fratelli Famous Eagle Street Pier is located on the ground floor of the iconic waterfront precinct. The 62-seat pizzeria features a large al fresco area and a spacious, light-filled dining room.
Customers build their own pizza by choosing one of three bases: sourdough, classic Napolitana, or gluten-friendly; selecting from a number of sauces, seasoning and cheeses; and unlimited toppings.
A custom-designed Wood Stone dual wood and gas-fired oven cooks the Famous, hand-stretched pizzas to golden, blistered perfection in under two minutes.
Nine signature pizzas are also available, including Great Balls of Fire, Spicy Vegan, and classic Margherita. The menu also includes a breakfast pizza, dessert pizzas, build-your-own salads, and a rainbow of house-made gelatos, including salted pistachio crunch, hazelnut nocciola, tiramisu, and raspberry sorbetto flavours.
Customers can sit back and enjoy the balmy summer weather with a range of Italian craft beers brewed by Urban Craft Brewing Co, as well as house-made acqua frettas and sodas.
During a daily happy hour from 3pm-6pm customers can purchase a large pizza and craft beer for $20. A pizza, soda and gelato deal is available all day ($16 for an 8-inch pizza or $20 for a 12-inch pizza).
Diners can avoid the queue by ordering online with delivery by Deliveroo. Those who order via the Famous App will enjoy their 10th pizza and salad on the house, and a free birthday pizza.
Fratelli Famous joins Rockpool Dining Group’s Saké Restaurant & Bar and Bavarian Bier Café at Eagle Street Pier.
The first Fratelli Famous Pizzerias opened at Westfield and World Square shopping centres in Sydney’s CBD in August and October respectively, using the country’s first Wood Stone pizza ovens.
