It starts with the dough. Full of flavor and easy to digest, our naturally leavened dough made
with our proprietary mother, is crafted over five days. To achieve its
unique flavor profile, we developed one strain of starter with apricots
from a local farm and added a mother starter said to be more than
300 years old - curated from the Neapolitan island of Ischia.
It doesn't stop at pizza - our focus on in-season, reginionally specific and high quality ingredients has also led to our beloved and unique takes on Sicilian classics and inventive new takes on antippasti, insalate, pasta, and beautiful steaks, chops and fish.
Our expansive beverage program encompasses inventive takes on classic cocktails, an expansive and regional wine list, and craft beers.
Utilizing ingredients such as blood orange and basil infused grappa, house infused fennel vodka, and fine spirits, you're sure to find both new cocktails and old classics, always done right.
Our experience isn't exclusively for small gatherings or date nights - Monzu is set to accomodate and host parties of any size up to 150.
We also bring our menu outside of our walls, and can cater and deliver our fare for as many people as you can invite.
Accompanying your fine food and drink, we host live music and bands that gives your time here a warm and relaxed experience.
