Shop 225 is located at the last tram stop of route 58 at Pascoe Vale. It has indoor and outdoor seating area, and a small garden area at the back where people can book for private events. It is most popular for its wood fired Italian and vegan pizzas. Offering many varieties of vegan options as well as gluten free ones.

We visited the shop on Friday afternoon and were happily welcomed by the staffs. They gave us few minutes to look at the menu and then assisted us on what we should get that will favour our taste. Since we were craving for cheesy stuffs, we finally decided to get the Bianca Gamberi (stracciatella cheese, prawns, parsley, pancetta) and Spaghetti Carbonara. We were also asked if we wanted the pizza to be gluten free and yes we did.

It only took around 10-15 minutes before our food was served. Just by the look and smell we could already tell that they’d taste amazing. And we were right, it was one of the best pizzas we ever tasted. We never thought prawns would taste so good on a pizza, but it worked. The pizza base was not too soft but also not too hard to cut. The creaminess and amount of the sauce was perfect. Its size was also great for 2-3 people share. The spaghetti might look simple and plain traditional. However just like the pizza, it tasted amazing. The balance of the creaminess, savoury and sweetness was just right. They also gave us grated parmesan so we could even add more cheese to our pizza and pasta.

Lastly we also tried their tiramisu and they also served us their special Cannolis with chocolate hazelnut vegan calzone. The tiramisu was definitely a must for me. It was not too creamy nor sweet, which made every bite felt light but still contained enough tiramisu flavour. The cannolis were a great option for vegans. Served with the vegan “nutella”, which surprisingly tasted really good. We were full and very satisfied at the end. We had an enjoyable and delightful meal. The service was really awesome. Would definitely pay a second visit to Shop 225.
