Born out of a shared appreciation for everything Italian that ferments…Darlinghurst has a newcomer to the block, Fermento, brainchild of Diego Mazza and Giorgio Colosimo, respectively hailing from Calabria and Milan in Italy.
This authentic Italian new haunt launches with a delectable menu including dishes such as ham & truffle pizza with fior di latte mozzarella, smoked leg of ham, mushrooms and tartufata ($26), home-made prawn ravioli with lemon butter sauce, thyme and roasted pine nuts ($28), preceded by the hero antipasto dish; eggplant parmy rolls with buffalo mozzarella, Napoli sauce, Parmigiano, basil sauce and balsamic reduction ($21).
All of the pizza dough is made in the house through the fermentation process enhancing the structure and flavour of the dough, enjoyed with expertly selected wines from Il Mercante and 12 Bottles or a classic Negroni.
With a ferment of food and wine, diners can enjoy the flavourful but straightforward venue style, with live music on a Monday and Thursday evening to give your experience a unique and warm ambient!
Fermento has also partnered with Darlo Bar in Darlinghurst to offer a late night pizza and pasta menu if you fancy a more casual dining experience.
Executive Chef & Co-founder Diego Mazza says of the new opening “We love dough, which ferments and becomes beautiful pizza, we love grapes, which ferment and become delicious wine. We love people in a state of fermentative energy, oozing vibes!”
