Tazza Kitchen is a high energy eatery centered on made from scratch wood fired cooking, thoughtfully sourced ingredients, craft beverages, and the heads up hospitality of an incredible team of people. Based in Richmond, Virginia, Tazza Kitchen is part of Big Kitchen Hospitality which operates six restaurants throughout Virginia and the Carolinas, and is set to launch a new to-go food brand titled The Big Kitchen in mid-January.
Tazza Kitchen is a casual eatery with locations in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The seasonal menu highlights ingredients sourced from dozens of farmers and food artisans, wood-fired cooking, and influences from Southern Italy and Baja California. The craft beverage program features unique small-production wines, innovative local brews, and cocktails made with premium spirits and the freshest ingredients. All of this served in a fun and lively environment at affordable prices.
