Come Celebrate Italian Craft Beer at Vizio

Our friends at Vizio Caffé e Cucina are celebrating Italian Craft Beer for the Month of May, it’s a month-long celebration of Italian craft beer and cuisine that is sure to delight Beer aficionado’s.

Every evening throughout the month, an exclusive four-course shared menu will be on offer showcasing authentic Italian dishes matched with some of Italy’s best craft beers for $65 per person.

The beers represent a wide range of styles and producers, from well-established Italian breweries Birra Del Borgo and Brewfist to the more up-and-coming Les Bières du Grand St. Bernard and Birra Anima.

Matia Zoffoli, director and general manager at Vizio, explains: “We love Italian craft beer at Vizio and give it the same importance as our favourite wines, so decided to put on an Italian Craft Beer and Food Month to celebrate the unique styles found in Italy and show Sydneysiders the best of what the country has to offer. Many people haven’t tried Italian craft beers matched with traditional Italian food, so this is the perfect chance to do that.”

For entrée, diners can enjoy Pan Fried Scallops with butternut pumpkin, chestnuts and sea asparagus complemented with La Bassa, an easy drinking Italian lager from brewer Brewfist. The pasta course will follow with Ravioli alla Genovese filled with slow cooked veal, Parmesan fondue and Barolo jus. The matching beer for this course is the Blou, an amber rye weizen from Les Bières du Grand St. Bernard.

For main, a Red Snapper Fillet will be served with truffle potato and spring onion alongside the My Antonia imperial pilsner from Birra Del Borgo. To finish, a decadent Dark Chocolate Mousse with Amoretti, apricot and salted caramel gelato will be the perfect dessert partner to the Dante dark ale from Birra Anima.

Located at the Hyde Park end of the vibrant William Street strip, Vizio is a family owned and operated café and restaurant serving international breakfast and lunch and authentic Italian dinner. The business is run by the Fuscaldo and Zoffoli families with brothers Alessandro and David, daughter Katia and son-in-law Matia bringing their wealth of experience in Italian hospitality to their latest venture.
