ZaZa's Cucina Italiana is celebrating its first year in operation this month! The past 12 months has seen the casual and energetic neighbourhood eatery forge a strong relationship with the locals, constantly serving soul satisfying Italian food. Open seven days a week, ZaZa's has worked hard to build an outstanding reputation, and develop a loyal customer base, who are not only local, but travel from far distances to indulge in a night at ZaZa's. A favourite among the customers are the Pizza's, beautifully made by master pizzaioli from Italy using the best locally sourced produce. ZaZa's hasn't been afraid to open its door to a wide range of events, from the Cheese Night held in July to the showcasing of local artist Sammy McKay's latest work in November as well as the introduction of the exclusive Cubo Food & Wine Club in December and enjoying a ZaZa's Christmas and New Year with regulars and newcomers. The first year was full of emotion, passion and innovation and there is only more to come in the New Year.
In addition to the locals, ZaZa's has had the pleasure of serving to some of Australia's culinary icon's such as pastry king Adriano Zumbo and Masterchef Australia judge Matt Preston. Internationally acclaimed singer Tina Arena has been a local fixture too!
During its first year ZaZa's had the honour of being included in -Melbourne's Top 25 Best New Italian Eateries' (Weekend Herald Sun Dec 2013) and won the People's Choice Award for its entry in the Good Food Guide's -Shoot the Chef' photographic exhibition, as well as having its kitchen hailed as one of the best in Melbourne.
In 2014 ZaZa's will continue to inspire its customers and create food and experiences that will have them begging for more!
