Grab your mates on hump day and challenge them to see who can eat the most slices of pizza at The Noble Gentleman. The legends at The Noble Gentleman are testing your bellies with unlimited pizza for $35 per person on Wednesdays from 5pm. And fear not parents with young ones to feed: kids under 12 eat free.
Eat as much pizza as you want for as long as you want in the comfy ambience of this sophisticated bar. The pizza is served slice by slice to your table right out of the wood oven. Turn on a small light on your table to signal for the pizza to keep coming or switch off the light to pause feeding and chat to your friends without full mouths.
Discover delicious wood oven gourmet pizza varieties in Italian or Brazilian style. Unique flavours include the Atum / Tonno, a tuna pizza with Spanish onions and kalamata olives, Salmone, smoked salmon with capers and sour cream, and Pescador / Pescatore, a seafood combination of prawns, mussels, calamari and barra. There are 14 pizzas on offer including the contentious pineapple and ham pizza made especially for kids.
Accompany your pizza with a cocktail or one of the many, many wines on offer. The Noble Gentleman is primarily a wine bar and cellar door after all, so there’s always a different local SA winery being showcased each month. Since pizza is designed to share, treat your beverages the same by sharing a bottle. If a bottle is a bit steep for your cheap Wednesday, there will be a variety of drink specials on offer too.
Back to the pizza, The Noble Gentlemen’s gourmet pizzas keep it simple with well-balanced sauce, cheese and toppings, which is hard to achieve, especially on thin bases. And being the thin pizzas that they are, you can keep eating more and slices without a groggy feeling sneaking up on you. The flavours I predict will be the favourites at your Wednesday group hangout, work knock off or date are: Diavola (classic salami), BBQ Chicken and the namesake pizza The Noble Gentleman featuring ham, salami, mushrooms, capsicum and kalamata olives.
The no-meat-fans are covered too. The classic Margherita impresses with fresh basil and a drizzle of evoo (extra virgin olive oil), while the 4 Fromaggi is the ideal cheese pizza because of its light and creamy quality. There is also a Vegan pizza on offer with tomato, mushrooms, roasted capsicum, Spanish onions, sun dried tomatoes and chili.
Crust-lovers rejoice over schiacciata – seasoned pizza bread. The options include Garlic and Rosemary, Padano and Olive Tapenade which are also all vegetarian friendly. When you need a pause from tomato-based pizzas, cleanse your palette with the Padano topped with wild rocket and shaved grana Padano parmesan – yum!
And if you’re still on the fence about spending $35 on pizza, no matter how much you get, I have the food to push you over: dessert pizzas. There are three dessert pizzas including Nutella with roasted almonds, Dulce de Leche and S’mores. Dulce de Leche is a popular treat from South America made from heating condensed milk to create a thick, caramel sauce. In combination with banana and cinnamon on pizza base it is definitely deserving of repeat slices. But the real dessert pizza you need is the S’mores pizza: it’s as simple and delicious as enjoying chocolate, marshmallow and biscuit over a campfire.
Getting dinner and dessert in a picture-worthy CBD spot for $35 is nearly unheard of, so turn around your mid-week slump with The Noble Gentleman. Arrive Wednesdays from 5:30pm onwards and settle into a feast.
