The crew behind Love, Tilly Devine are opening a new Italian pasta and wine bar. Say ‘ciao’ to Ragazzi.
The crew behind Love, Tilly Divine in Darlinghurst and Dear Saint Eloise in Potts Point are no strangers to a great wine bar, and now they’re adding a new family member to the hospitality mix. Say ‘ciao’ to Ragazzi, the sleek Italian pasta and wine bar arriving to the CBD. At the helm are co-owners Matthew Swieboda and Nathanial Hatwell, who’ve teamed up with cooking talent chef Scott Williams (ex-Bacco Osteria).
Set to open in August in Angel Place, the 38 seater venue is positioned as a relaxed neighbourhood hangout, which somewhat jarringly, you’ll find tucked into a tight fold of the bustling city. A 10 seater bar will give you quick access to Ragazzi’s impressive 250+ wine list. Honouring low intervention and small batch drops from Italy, you won’t tire of this wine list easily, with 20 drops also available by the glass.
As for the food menu, you’ll find a tight pasta list, all of which is made in house and will change daily. If you’re lucky, you might also spot whole goat on the menu, which will be used in a variety of dishes. At the bar, a small array of snacks are designed to pique the appetite, drawing on chef William’s time spent in Spain.
Ragazzi is predicted to open in early August. Watch this space for more information.
