Food means everything to me. Whether it be listening to my Nonno’s stories of his restaurant, learning tricks of the trade from my chef brother or simply devouring every dish my mum places in front of me, food to me is family and thus, food is love. With this love in mind, I endeavor to find the best restaurants and cafes in Brisbane and to share them with those I love: fellow foodies. I’m a sucker for a traditional pizza and the way to my heart is with a cracking cocktail. Feed me these and I’m yours.
