Chi Siamo

About us

What is ‘Briscola’? It is a popular card game played by Italians. Briscola is not a card game to be played alone. Nor is Italian food something that should be eaten alone.

Briscola is first and foremost a pizzeria, loved by locals and frequented by travellers. We have been awarded 2014 ACT Best Pizzeria and 2015 ACT Best Italian Restaurant at the Restaurant and Catering Awards. 

At Briscola, we focus on using the best products from Italy or regional businesses. Our coffee is locally roasted by Lonsdale Street Roasters, our meats are from Red Hill Butcher, our gelato is locally churned by Gelatomio, our regional wines include Four Winds Vineyard, Lerida Estate, Pankhurst, Brindabella Hills, Long Rail Gully & Clonakilla. Our beers include Pig's Fly and Kosciuszko, and our cider is by Bilpin. Our ravioli is locally made by nonna.



Briscola’s pizza recipe has produced Canberra’s favourite pizza since the birth of its predecessor ‘La Posada’ in 1998. Using imported Italian tipo ‘00’ flour, the dough is twice risen before being hand-stretched when you order + topped with local & Italian produce. The kitchen focuses on crafting intimate sharing plates, which explore the simple & fresh flavours of Italian cuisine, just like dining at Nonna’s table.



Briscola’s drinks list is crafted on the defining aspects of our identity: Italian and Canberran. Italian wines, artisan beers, a collection of aperitifs & digestives are featured alongside our cast of regional wines, beers, locally roasted coffee and locally churned gelato.



From corporate luncheons to birthdays, farewells and special occasisons, at Briscola we are experienced in providing the perfect Italian sagre (feast) for your group event. Our banquet menus cater to a range of budgets and dietary requirements. For more formal events we also offer a range of set menu options.

Our banquet menu is available above or feel free to contact us to asist with your specific needs.

Briscola is available for private functions by arrangement.

We also do CATERING!
