If you’ve not visited Little Red Kitchen lately, you’ll find exciting changes.

New owner, Vicki Bridgstock explains she has kept six of the ‘Little Red Kitchen Favourites’ and a few others that a pizza restaurant can’t do without – such as the ham and pineapple, supreme, pepperoni and vegetarian. 

“I also devised six Italian pizzas that people are really loving,” says Vicki. 

There is the Salsiccia, using locally-made Italian sausage with Italian herbs, red wine and garlic on a pizza with roasted red peppers and red onion. Also Funghi Bianco pizza, which is made with local mushrooms and thyme on a bechamel sauce base with white truffle oil.

Italian food is all about family, so I have created an atmosphere and menu that welcomes families."

She also makes her own lasagne, Bolognaise and cannelloni and the desserts.

Weekly specials may include Chicken Cacciatore or Italian Lamb Shanks, and entrees like Baked Ricotta or Arrancini Balls.

“My home-made Minestrone kept many people warm over our cold winter months,” says Vicki.

“I have the best team of staff. Maddie, Shane and John on pizzas, Ely is our made-to-order pasta king, and Alena and I work out front. I am very proud to provide employment for these wonderful people”.

“We would love to become a great place where you can celebrate any special occasion. There is no charge for bringing in a birthday cake (‘cakeage’) – or I can even organise one if needed.”
