New Menu Paired Wine Dinner at Pazza Market & Cucina

About the Event

Spring is in the air and it’s a season of change. To celebrate, Pazza Market & Cucina at The Collection at UTC has just unveiled its first Carne e Pesce (meat and fish) menu items and will host a paired wine tasting event April 23 to showcase the latest additions.

Opened a little over a year ago with a menu centered around pasta, pizzas and salads, Pazza Market & Cucina has now expanded its offerings with its first-ever meat and fish focused entrees. Featuring authentic Italian Cuisine built on homemade pastas, sauces and sides, the restaurant felt the time was right to bring a few heartier items to the menu:

Ribeye Steak: A classic 12oz Ribeye served with a side of Roasted Potatoes and a Cacio e Pepe sauce
Risotto Dello Chef: A rotating dish pairing Risotto with a meat side; current offering is Saffron Risotto made from Arborio Rice with a Lamb Shank
Fish of the Day: Alternating daily, a fresh filet pan seared and topped with a lemon caper sauce over lentils

“Bringing our guests the absolute freshest and most genuine Italian meals is our top priority,” said Pazza Executive Chef Patrick Money. “Expanding on our already popular base of pizzas and pastas, we felt the time was right to add some classic Italian protein-centric dishes with more options for our meat and fish loving guests,” he added.

To celebrate and introduce the new carne e pesce menu items, Pazza Market & Cucina is hosting a special six-course paired wine tasting event on April 23 at 6:30 p.m. with options to taste bites of the new dishes paired along an assortment of imported Italian wines. Tickets cost $99 and include tastings of a variety of Italian red and white wines such as paired with samples of several new and existing menu items and a dessert. Reservations can be made at or calling (619) 347-0371.
