Toto's Pizzeria signToto’s claims to be the first pizzeria in Australia, but this is not the case. Lucia’s Pizza Bar, in Adelaide’s Central Market, opened four years earlier. Toto’s may well have been the first in Melbourne,  opening on 7 July 1961 in Lygon Street, Carlton. Salvatore Della Bruna operated the business in partnership with Franco Fera and, from 1968, with Silvio Tuli and Salvatore Mercogliano. The pizzas were, and remain, Italian-style (no Tandoori chicken pizzas here!)
