A post on Mosman Collective’s Facebook page has ignited memories and sadness of long-lost Italian cafe Pasta Zu, famous for its delicious take-away meals.
Yes. We’re talking to the lot of you who’ve been pining for its array of pasta dishes, probably since the Military Rd mainstay closed in 2018 after 20 years on the strip.
We took for granted that the eatery would forever be the go-to for an easy night’s dinner or a weekend feast for a crowd.
The Spit Rd shopfront is open Wednesday: 2pm-5:30pm (Selling frozen stock) Saturday: 10am-2pm (Fresh and frozen stock).
But now, there is a five-star take-away and home delivery option, a niche little business, that is deserving of a Mosman Collective shout-out.
GF Pasta di Casa, located on Spit Rd, has an impressive range of ready-made Italian meals available half-days on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The rest of the time, they’re shopping, rolling pasta, blending sauces, sautéing vegetables and/or proteins. Oh, not that you’d ever guess, but the ‘GF’ stands for gluten free. For non-gluten intolerant peeps, the initials simply mean ‘great food’.
