New culinary team launches Roman Grill

La Rosa The Strand, sister restaurant of The Restaurant Pendolino, recently announced the unveiling of its new Roman Grill, while welcoming a new leadership team.

Launched in 2011, La Rosa The Strand comprises a restaurant and wine bar in Sydney’s historic Strand Arcade, offering an extensive list of premium, boutique Italian wines hand-picked each year by group sommelier, Cristian Casarin, and executive chef and owner, Nino Zoccali.

The menu at La Rosa The Strand has always been inspired by Rome, but after years of research and travelling, and—more recently—a dedicated culinary tour of the Lazio region, Zoccali decided the restaurant should focus much more strongly on the eternal city’s cuisine and culture.

“We’ve kind of unintentionally always had a strong Roman focus at La Rosa The Strand. Initially it was largely about our style of pizza—thin and super crusty, unlike the Neapolitan relative which is much softer,” Zoccali said.

“We’ve also always had classic Roman dishes on the menu, like our Trippa alla Romana and Roman-style pigs’ trotters. But in the past few years we’ve spent time in Rome researching and refining what we do and we’ve slowly fallen more in love with the amazing city and its unique dishes.”

Zoccali, Casarin and La Rosa The Strand’s new co-head chefs, Pablo Tordesillas Garcia (ex-Ortiga, Brisbane and The Resident, Sydney) and Joseph Giuffre (The Restaurant Pendolino), recently toured the Lazio region, travelling the coast and gaining insights along the way.

“With the addition of the new culinary team—both of strong Latin origin—it’s been quite a natural evolution for La Rosa, and our recent research trip to Rome, its hinterland and coastal region has driven some exciting menu developments,” Zoccali said.

The Roman Grill menu—launching in August—will centre around La Rosa The Strand’s new custom-made volcanic rock grill, Roman rotisseries and stone ovens.

Beyond the Roman Grill, the entire La Rosa offering, including a wine list that celebrates the Lazio region, will showcase Roman flavours.

“We were amazed by the simplicity and freshness of the food we enjoyed throughout Rome and its surrounding cities. We loved seeing real, authentic Italian food being cooked the way it should be, and we’ve brought that inspiration home and are excited to share it through the new menu at La Rosa,” co-head chef Giuffre said.
