Surry Hills latest pizzeria pairs kickass Italian eats with cocktails fitting of Garibaldi himself
Ever wondered what a kiss from the most beautiful woman in the world would taste like? Andrea, the talented Italian bartender at Maybe Frank, reckons he's nailed it in his crafted cocktail, The Sofia, inspired by Italian screen siren – and all-out hot stuff – Sophia Loren, and featured on the restaurant’s cocktail menu. It’s a light, floral combination of Cocchi Americano Rosa (an Italian aperitif wine), tequila, sherry and geranium.
As for food, this place is all about pizza, with the chefs resting the yeasted dough for up to three days before shaping it to not be too thin, resulting in a pizza that has a smooth, lighter texture than most. The Margherita is a standout – with a charred, bouncy crust and the perfect balance of tomato sauce and mozzarella. The Caprino vegetarian pizza includes an array of char grilled veggies with crumbly goat's cheese, and the meat-based slices are equally as epic; the Parma ham finely sliced, paired with mushrooms that are buttery and tender and melting into the cheese.
