An authentic taste of Italy
Enjoy an authentic taste of Italy at Babydoll's Wood Fired Pizza Restaurant. Relax with a glass of prosecco and selection of antipasti under the olive trees or on the rustic veranda, or watch our chefs prepare your bowl of delicious fresh pasta in the open kitchen or bake your authentic Italian pizza in the wood fired oven.
Our chefs prepare fresh sourdough pizza, pasta dishes and seasonal salads. We love that our sourdough is made from scratch in-house and left for 24 hours, before we top with the finest Italian olive oil, tomato sauce and buffalo mozzarella. Delicious!

Babydoll the Gorilla
