About Us


Coming ‘Straight Outta Naples’ the SPQR experience of super authentic Neapolitan wood fired pizza has been a Melbourne favorite since 2016. Using our signature sourdough base, San Marzano tomatoes, plus the finest local and imported ingredients we guarantee a premium ‘pie’ every time. Pizza x Music x Art is the motto, SPQR is more than just pizza and we dish it up seven days a week.

Since then, we’ve opened SPQR Stadio at the MCG, working with Delaware North to serve premium ‘ready to go’ pizza across four locations…



Tom Gaden, one of the founders of S.P.Q.R, produces music and DJs under the moniker ‘Tom Showtime’.

It felt natural then for the Liverpool St restaurant to have a DJ booth handmade to showcase turntables in the front bar area, now affectionately known as the ‘Beatzeria’.

Tom also curates the soundtrack for each venue.


S.P.Q.R celebrates Melbourne’s street art culture, by curating and inviting many of Melbourne and Australia’s best artists to create unique pieces for each of our dining rooms, resulting in a constantly evolving gallery.

Today, there are over 26 pieces of art in the Liverpool Street restaurant…

From Scratch Dough

In 2020 we opened our factory out in Coburg, specifically designed and built to be the home for our fresh dough and part cooked pizza base business.

You’ll see our part cooked bases in all the best food stores in Melbourne, and we supply quite a few restaurants and pubs, too.
