Nonna’s Pizzeria & Deli – Opening Soon
“Just like Nonna’s” – three little words that are the Holy Grail of compliments when it comes to Italian food. Soon Nonna will be serving up her family-style feasts at South Bank, when Nonna’s Pizzeria & Deli opens its doors on Grey and Little Stanley Streets. The eatery is the latest project from the Olé Group (Olé Restaurant, Mucho Mexicano, Downtown Istanbul), which is currently transforming its recently closed Mister Paganini into this refreshed concept. The group has acquired Mister Paganini’s neighbouring space, with the multi-faceted Nonna’s set to span over 400 sqm with the capacity to fit roughly 200 patrons. The bar and eatery will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week, across Nonna’s Deli & Espresso, Nonna’s Pizzeria and Bar Italia. The Deli & Espresso bar will serve up a morning breakfast menu alongside pastries and Campos Coffee, and the likes of piadina sandwiches, house-made pies, jaffles and more at lunchtime. The woodfired pizza oven will also be fired up from lunch through to dinner, where the Nonna’s Pizzeria crew will hand stretch their house-made dough for a range of pizzas, alongside generously portioned modern-Italian family-style dishes. From 4:00 pm, an impressive vibe-changing curtain will be pulled across to close off the deli and reveal Bar Italia, a moody New York-style bar pouring Mediterranean-inspired sips – think negronis, spritzes and more. With rich flavours and the freshest ingredients on the menu, Nonna’s Pizzeria & Deli aims to bring together the best of Italy, showcasing its northern, southern, coastal and country regions. The bar and eatery is due to open late March to early April – we’ll have full details for you when it does!
