Our culinary world

Welcome to Zsolt’s Italian Pantry

The name of Zsolt Zachár is widely known amongst the residents of Pécs: he is well-known for his ability to create something long-lasting and of importance and does it in an overly passionate manner. His relationship with the Italian kitchen is legendary in the mediterranean city of Pécs: he aimed to build a top-notch culinary place right next to his Italian restaurant which has been open for almost three decades. The twist in the concept of Elefantino,- which is the little brother to Zsolt’s restaurant, the Elephant- is that Zsolt uses the 100% Made in Italy ingredients sold at the counter to serve the food he prepares for his guests. As a result, there's a much bigger selection on the spot than you might think at first glance: that's when it's really worth letting your culinary imagination run wild!
