Trattoria Centrale (formerly Za Za Trattoria)

207 A 20th St. N (downtown)
205) 202-5612
Weekdays 6:30am - 6:30 pm, Friday night and Sunday brunch. Take the attention to excellent quality ingredients and great service learned from Frank Stitt and apply it to a casual yet sophisticated downtown pizza place and what do you get? Trattoria Centrale, a relaxed, progressive Italian cafe featuring a rotating selection of pizzas along with a variety of seasonal salads and soups and a daily pasta special. Roman-style pizza by the slice, gourmet salads and soups. Pasta of the day includes dishes such as orecchiette with rapini, proscuitto, onion and pecorino; and bucatini all'arrabiatta. We hear breakfast/brunch is just as awesome, with omelettes, frittata, pastries and more. The pizza dough takes more than four hours to make, so for half or full-size pizzas, order a day in advance. Here's a descriptive post from the BhamSandwich blog:, and you can read about our first impressions here.
