Revered restaurateur Maurice Terzini will open a CicciaBella osteria within Lang Walker AO’s $3.2 billion Parramatta Square, in west Sydney.
The venue will be a suburban outpost to the Bondi Beach eatery which opened last October in the former Da Orazio space at 75-79 Hall Street.
Mr Terzini’s first restaurant, high-end diner, Otto, was established in Cowper Wharf Road, Woolloomooloo, 20 years ago.
Later, he began trading from Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, also in Bondi Beach.
The businessman is one of the members behind exclusive fashion label Ten Pieces, too.
CicciaBella – which Mr Terzini told Broadsheet is inspired by ‘cucina povera’ (peasant food) dishes from southern Italy, often with just three or four ingredients, is scheduled to open in Parramatta in September.
It will be managed by Nic Wong, who recently took over at Bondi from founding head chef, Mitch Orr.
Parramatta Square, proposed by the billionaire’s Walker Corporation, will contain about 290,000 square metres of commercial area.
An office at 6-8 Parramatta Square is set to be Australia’s biggest, with c120,000 sqm of lettable space.
Parramatta – also dubbed Sydney’s second city – is 20 kilometres from Pitt Street Mall.
