Zucca Rossa

While none of what we experienced at its official friendly welcoming night reflective of a red pumpkin, the di italiano atmosphere of the place, enhanced by its menu, made for a foodie’s sweet dream and the name Zucca Rossa make that little more sense.

A favourite restauranteur of mine who once owned a jewel in the city’s restaurant crown, Scusa Mi, Mario di Nardo is the name behind the newest addition to the city’s food scene, bringing his years of experience in gastronomy and Italian cuisine to an area that prides itself on great food, a stylish atmosphere and wonderful wine.

Occupying a space that was once an old post office, Zucca Rossa is in prime location to welcome-in party goers from all walks at all times, playing on its bar-come-fine-yet-affordable dining experience, tucked away behind the understated but appealing facade. Needless to say, I like it.

The kitchen takes pride in sourcing some winning produce from across Victoria, utilising only the best cooking methods garnered by a selected team of seasoned professionals, while the intricacies of the interior decorating, with its exposed natural resources and other funky textures keep the guests intrigued with a sense of coolness between sittings.
