La Rosa Bar and Pizza

La Rosa Bar & Pizza, Sydney

The Strand Arcade, Shop 133, Level 2
193 Pitt Street

Set in the lofty heights of Sydney’s Strand Arcade, La Rosa Bar and Pizza is an exciting new offering from the team behind the hugely successful and long standing Pendolino restaurant. La Rosa opened in June and was packed to the rafters with those who know the Pendolino’s formula well, and those who were keen to see the newest member of Sydney’s growing bar scene.

Owner Nino Zoccali confirmed to Bartender that his pride for the new venture was his passion to showcase dozens of hard to find Italian aperitifs and liqueurs, and the cocktail list on offer showcases just some of what’s available.


“A great deal of care and research has gone into the new restaurant, ” Zoccali stated. “[Having] fifty Italian liqueurs by the glass will, to our knowledge, be a first in Australia and will add a true sense of classic Italian hospitality.”

The bar holds centre court in La Rosa, and guests are able to walk right past the kitchen on their way inside giving an all access look into the engine room. “I believe that La Rosa Bar and Pizza will be a great addition to the Sydney CBD,” said Zoccali, “the thought of opening an authentic and fantastic new pizzeria and bar is very exciting.”
