New Italian Food: Bella D’Auria

Posted By on Tue, May 10, 2011 at 12:41 PM

The former owner of Café D’Auria is back with a new Italian restaurant opening this summer at 4445 E. Broadway Blvd.

Bella D’Auria will serve “Naples-style Italian food,” according to Chef Lorenzo D’Auria, who will be heading up kitchen operations. A trained sommelier and cigar expert, he will also oversee those aspects of the business when it opens this June.

“The food at this restaurant will be about flavor infusions. When you taste one entrée, you will taste seven different flavors,” said Chef D’Auria, before delving into a mouth-watering description of mussels-and-clams done D’Auria-style.

The restaurant will take extra steps to accommodate diners with dietary restrictions. Diners will be able to leave a description of their specific needs—gluten-intolerant, vegan, specific needs related to other health conditions, etc.—and the chefs will come up with dishes that meet those restrictions.

The restaurant is expected to have an upscale “Las Vegas” feel, with a lengthy glass bar and LED lights. Projectors will light up the walls with images of Italy. There will be college nights, classical-music nights and other entertainment throughout the week.

Coffee and ultra-affordable breakfasts will available by morning, and the full menu will be available even into late-night.

“I just want Tucson to know that there is a restaurant coming that cares about them, and that it makes real Italian food, too,” said Chef D’Auria.
