Maluco, Liverpool’s much-loved pizzeria, with updated interior and some tweaks to its menu.

The Castle Street-based restaurant has introduced a new menu that’s packed with Maluco’s popular 18” hand-stretched pizzas, new sides including loaded pizza fries as well as serving pasta dishes for the first time.

New additions include an entire pasta section such as chicken Kiev pasta, with chicken and bacon in a rich creamy sauce topped with crispy chicken skin crumb, as well as Rondelli, rolls of fresh pasta inlaid with ham and cheese topped with a creamy sauce and baked in the oven.

Other pasta favourites include traditional bolognese, a vegan pasta dish with sunblush tomatoes, red peppers and spinach and the American Hot made up of chicken, chorizo, spicy sausage and red onion in a spicy tomato sauce.

Guests can also choose to tuck into their favourite pizza topping on a bed of fries.

Plenty of Maluco’s much-loved pizzas remain on the menu including What The Duck? Lo Pan Loco, Return of the Mac and Pollo Kiev.

There’s also an entire menu dedicated to vegan guests.

Sean Flaherty, Head Chef at Maluco, says: “We wanted to introduce tasty pasta dishes to the menu to broaden our offering for guests, whilst continuing to serve up our 18” wood fired pizzas that we’re known for. The pizza fries were a no-brainer – they’re absolutely delicious and who doesn’t want their favourite pizza topping with the addition of fresh cooked fries?”

How does it work?

Rodízio is an ‘all you can eat’ style of restaurant service common in Brazil. At Maluco guests pay a ‘preço fixo’ and the servers will bring samples of pizza to each guest at several times throughout the meal, until the guests signal that they have had enough.

Pizzas are both sweet and savoury so anyone still hungry can sample their home made dessert pizzas. If you fancy a more traditional serving then they offer pizzas by the slice or the full 18’’ inch.
