Da Orazio has reopened it’s doors with a new sister venue

Bondi’s treasured Da Orazio + Porchetta has reopened its doors, and its new sister venue, Ori’s Bar, is joining the party.

The venue is in the same spot within The Hub Hall Street, the red entry door is back, and you can expect old classic dishes making a comeback to the menu, as well as a selection of new dishes and a chic new interior.

Classic comebacks include the rotisserie porchetta with foccacia; fregola fruit di mare; as well as the antipasti Italiano plates for two and four. New dishes include brick chicken – pollo al mattone; scarpetta – baccala and fried pizza; mortadella cacio e pepe; and an Italian version of saganaki. “We couldn’t resist bringing back the classic favourite dishes but I’ve been working on some exciting new dishes, inspired by growing up in Italy. And wait until you try the new pizzas. We’re using a new dough starter, and let me tell you, it’ll be easy to devour two margheritas!” – Orazio

Though the location is familiar, the 90-seat restaurant has undergone a complete makeover. Orazio collaborated with Loopcreative to create a casual and chic space that is reminiscent of basking in the glow of an endless Italian summer.

Da Orazio is open seven nights, from 5 pm til late. Lunch on Saturday and Sunday from midday.


Ori’s Bar, located next door, is a classic Italian bar offering pre-batched cocktails, an all-new snack menu, and a jukebox loaded with 80s and disco tracks.

Their signature cocktail, the Orazio was made especially for owner Orazio D’Elia. It combines the Vodka, sweetness of watermelon, citrus of handmade Limoncello, and freshness of mint and cucumber. This cocktail captures memories of Orazio traveling with his Nonno to Italy to buy a watermelon for his fruit shop.
