Pizzeria Violetta Opens in Wongabel Street
Georgia McDermott | On 07, May 2015
A once relatively unheard-of street in Kenmore, Wongabel Street, is fast becoming a bustling food hub; its latest success isÂ Pizzeria Violetta.Â
Restaurant owner Renata Roberts blew our heads off back in 2012 when she oped her renowned and notoriously chilli-charged, Chinese restaurant Sichuan Bang Bang. Now right next door she presents her newest culinary sensation, Pizzeria Violetta.Â
Pizzeria Violetta boastsÂ an open-plan kitchen so patrons take part in a multi-sensory dining experience.
Expect to see the pizzaiolos tossing and kneading dough before masterfully creating a work of art, pizza-style, and plunging it into the huge oven.
Sounds of Italy bounce across the room as the strictly Italian-only staff chatter amongst themselves.
The impressively large pizza oven commands the attention of the room, firing away atÂ a scorching 400 degrees and taking only ninety seconds to cook a pizza to perfection.
The menu features an extensive list of brianche and rosse-based gourmet pizzas, light salads and Italian wines.
The chef offers a daily selection of mini bites to accompany a few drinks at the bar or to share amongst friends as an appertiserÂ before the main event.
The fragrant rosemary and garlic bread is a must-try item on the menu, as is the Maiala pizza which isÂ generously topped with mozzarella, and lashings of salami, pork and fennel sausage, pancetta and chilli oil.
For those adventurous eaters and chilli lovers out there, be sure to try the Diavola pizza with spicy “inferno” salami.
Pizzeria Violetta has become an instant hit and from 5pmÂ customers are fighting for a table, sipping drinks at the bar while they eagerly await an opening.
They do not take bookings on Friday or Saturday but every item on the menu is available to takeaway so you’ll never go without your Violetta fix.
Be sure to add Pizzeria Violetta to your list of must-try Brisbane eats!
