If you’re looking for a new HOT SPOT for Italian dining, Zona Azzurri is the one. The 140 seater restaurant is the latest addition to the ever changing restaurant scene in the inner-city suburb of Alexandria.

Thankfully new places are popping-up and hopefully they will bring back the once buzzing scene of this lovely street.
