Zuzza at Disfida

March 2010

Keen Sydney restauranters (those who eat out habitually) will remember the Zuzza family — Guiseppe and Antonietta Zuzza opened The Mixing Pot in Glebe in 1980, handing over to their son Peter around the middle of the 90s. In 2005, Peter sold it to the staff and dropped out of the business until January, when we announced he’d bought La Disfida (109 Ramsay Street Haberfield, Ph 9798 8299).    

I finally got to try the Zuzza Disfida and, as I suspected, it’s terrific. As Peter told us in January, there’s been very little change to the look of the place and only small changes to the menu; the wine list has been beefed up considerably with Italians. And, as befits a casual pizzeria, he’s managed to find interesting examples at reasonable prices with a good smattering of wines by the glass — the 2008 Antonio Caggiano Fiagre made with the fiano grape was a good find and gorgeous with the octopus salad. Pizzas are thin and crisp of crust (if you like anchovies, ask for extra on the Napoli) and the antipasti are very good indeed. Zuzza does it again.
