Zona Blu first opened its doors and welcomed Weston diners to sample a taste of Sardinia over seven years ago. Over that time the restaurant has become a fixture in West Broward’s culinary scene with its uncompromising quality and unique dishes and has continued to delight discerning Weston diners with a taste of the beautiful Mediterranean island off the coast of Italy. Zona Blu’s second location, Zona Blu WPB, opened in April at 8170 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. The Palm Beach location offers a Sardinian focused menu, delicious specials, a full bar and a spacious patio for al fresco dining.
Unique, Delicious Menu
Zona Blu’s menu features fresh pasta and seafood, wood-fired pizza, and imported ingredients found primarily in Sardinia, Italy. The restaurant’s cuisine is heavily influenced by Sardinia’s history. “Sardinian food is influenced by flavors from the Middle East, North Africa, Southern Europe, and the Far East,” commented Chef Fadda, “Those influences resulted in one of the most deliciously unique cuisines in the world.”
Zona Blu takes pride in offering dishes that are not typically known outside of Sardinia, such as Fregola, a unique, couscous-style pasta simmered in a double reduction of fish tomato broth, then tossed with extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and the freshest seafood imaginable. Another favorite is Spaghetti al Cartoccio, which has spaghetti tossed with mixed seafood and fresh tomato sauce, which is then covered with a thin pillow of pizza dough and baked in their woodburning oven.
The restaurant also continues to offer foodie-favorite options from past menus. These include Pasta alla Ruota where your favorite pasta and homemade Panna sauce are mixed tableside in a massive wheel of 100% Parmigiano Reggiano. The cheese is incorporated into the warm pasta and creates a dish and experience you will not soon forget.
Culugiornes are homemade stuffed pasta typically served during special occasions in Sardinia. However, at Zona Blu, this dish has become so requested, that their chefs prepare them daily. No need to wait for a special occasion to enjoy them! Fresh pasta dough is filled with a mixture of potato, pecorino cheese, and mint before being shaped into plump dumplings pinched together to form a seal. The pasta is then briefly boiled and served with fresh tomato sauce and basil. This dish is enjoyed by everyone, including vegetarians!
South Floridians typically think of the winter months as tourist season; at Zona Blu, it is truffle season! Fresh deliveries of black and white truffles arrive weekly and are offered as an entrée enhancement. Their most popular pasta is Cacio e Pepe con Tartufo. A wheel of Pecorino Sardo cheese arrives tableside, fresh pasta is tossed until blended with the cheese, add black pepper, and finish the plate off with shaved black or white truffle. We guarantee you’ll be transported to food heaven!
Zona Blu also offers full catering services for families and businesses. Families can even opt-in for a chef to come along with your catering order to prepare their famous Pasta alla Ruota. Local businesses receive 10% off catering orders.
Be sure to take advantage of Zona Blu’s popular weekday specials. During lunch hours (11:30 am – 3:00 pm Tuesday-Friday) select pastas are $15 and select pizzas are $10 for dine-in, carry-out, and delivery.
