Our South Yarra 48H Pizza & Gnocchi Bar opened in 2015 and quickly became a local favourite. Owners Fabio Biscaldi and Michele Circhirillo have been serving seasonal and artisanal small plates, handmade gnocchi and pizzas inspired by dishes that they grew up with.
For us, 48 hours is the minimum time required for the dough to rise. A dough that has been leavened for 48H with natural yeast will make your pizza light, fragrant and aromatic… just like in Italy. Natural yeast has been used for generations in Italy. In fact, back in the day, only one person in the village would have natural yeast and they would use it to barter goods with. Bread was made once a week, and in some villages, just once a month, so natural yeast had to be bartered or families would go without their bread…. a sacrilegious thought to any food-respecting Italian!
At 48H, we want to respect and maintain these traditions and introduce you to true Italian flavours, remastered for today’s refined palates.
Thanks to a strong following, the duo expanded and opened their second home in Elsternwick in August 2017.
Buon Appetito!
