Centrally located in Waterford City at 53 John Street, and beside its renowned sister restaurant Bodega, Burzza specialises in real Italian style wood fired pizzas and proper hamburgers.
Pizzas are a true slice of Italy. Dough is made from fine Italian 00 flour and fresh yeast and is hand kneaded, thrown and slowly proved by an Italian pizza chef with over 20 years’ experience from the Luciano region in Italy.
Sauce is homemade from fresh local tomatoes and herbs and the traditional wood fired oven was shipped from Naples, in Italy. With 13 pizza options as well as weekly specials, there is something for everyone. Enjoy Italian classics such as pizza alla diavola with nduja salami, spicy soft calabrian sausage and sweet salami to Chef Jamie's pizza; boilie goats cheese, fresh rosemary and wild rocket.
Beef burgers are sourced from one of Waterford's finest butchers from his farm in Kilmacthomas. 6oz patties are made fresh each day to our secret recipe, and chargrilled. Tasty and messy as they should be, they are served with skinny fries.
Burzza also offers light bites such as its antipasto platter, Toonbridge bruschetta, pecorino bruschetta, Toonbridge buffalo mozzarella ball, chicken wings, caesar salad and more… Add to this a selection of gorgeous and sinful desserts such as homemade teacakes, waffles, tiramisu, affogato, and artisan ice cream milkshakes.
With a casual and cosy atmosphere and friendly staff, Burzza is the type of restaurant that is is equally good for a family meal with the kids or for a relaxed bite with friends.
Sourcing of produce is very important for Burzza, where the philosophy is all about buying the best produce possible for each dish, while endeavouring to keep it local. Diners can expect lots of fresh, seasonal and local toppings and fillings along with products imported from the Luciano area in Italy.
Drinks includes a nice selection of wines matched to the food on offer as well as local craft beers and ciders, prosecco and a great selection of prosecco cocktails.
