Step Back in Time and Savor Authentic Italian: Welcome to Zecca Pasta!
Zecca is a laidback, casual eatery housed in the iconic art deco Rural Bank building (built in the late 30’s) and what better way could we pay homage to this building’s past than with our name, “Zecca”, which means “mint/money press” in Italian. Zecca di Venezia is a sixteenth-century building in Venice which once housed the mint of the Republic of Venice!
The true food of Italy is what we serve you here at Zecca, and we are bringing the old, sometimes lost, recipes back to life.
Forget about the mass-produced, flavorless boxes on the supermarket shelf. Here at Zecca, we're taking you on a journey to the true heart of Italian cooking, where passion for tradition meets the bounty of Australian soil.
No trendy twists, just the real deal: we revive rare, forgotten pasta shapes (Ben's personal obsession!), drawing inspiration from cucina povera, cucina regionale, and cibo di strada. It's Italian comfort food at its finest, made with the soul of the past and the freshness of local ingredients.
