After last year being named Australia's Best Italian Restaurant (Informal) at the Restaurant & Catering Australia Awards for Excellence, we're thrilled to announce that we've once again been named a finalist in the 2018 awards.
La Rosa The Strand has been included in delicious. magazine's delicious.100 list, which ranks the top 100 diners in NSW. We were thrilled to take out 41st place, with our sister restaurant, The Restaurant Pendolino coming in at 38th.
Executive chef Nino Zoccali spoke with Openhouse magazine about La Rosa The Strand's unique pasta offering and its dedicated in-house pasta kitchen where, at any one time, 20 different sorts of pasta are being hand-made.
"After six years as a casual pizza, pasta and wine bar, restaurateur Nino Zoccali (The Restaurant Pendolino) has given his Strand Arcade eatery La Rosa a Roman renovation. And the changes are stunning."
