The elegant, coastal-inspired Italian eatery coming to Broadbeach

Exciting news fresh out of Broadbeach today involving beloved Italian eats by people whose culinary talents have wowed us for quite some time already.

Yes friends, it’s a new Italian eatery adding to The Oracle Boulevard’s already thriving dining scene. Orzo, which translates to ‘barley’ in Italian, will be the (no doubt very fine) work of Social Eating House and Bar’s owner and executive chef, Matthew Jefferson, along with his wife Dayna who will gift us with sophisticated coastal Italian cuisine.

And we are quite excited about it.

The newbie is expected to open late November and we’re told to expect an elegant, relaxed vibe also reflected in a menu focusing on sustainable, local produce that will span breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Italian food all day long, what a treat.

The menu will feature housemade pastas paying homage to southern Italy with mouthwatering dishes like Cacio e Pepe – pasta, Parmesan and freshly cracked black pepper, gracing the impressive menu.

There’ll also be delights like house-cured meats, fresh seafood, a variety of cheeses (AKA the love of our lives), traditional Italian wines, cocktails and of course, the classic spritz.

With both indoor and outdoor dining options, Orzo intends to invoke a relaxed dining experience transporting us to the shores of the Amalfi Coast, a place we are certainly happy to go all day, every day.

The interior will be bright and airy with a warm colour palette and textured finishes. The epitome of a Coastal hug they say.

We’re in love already.

If you’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the next-level goodness that is Social Eating House and Bar, you’ll know everything about it is unparalleled. From the service, to the quality of cuisine and everything in between, we’re absolutely thrilled the same but an Italian version.

Bring on November and all of the exceptional Italian eats thank you very much.

Stay tuned for more details when Orzo officially opens.

LOCATION: Oracle Boulevard, Broadbeach
