Melbourne-based chef Johnny Di Francesco, has had a passion for Italian cuisine since his first job at 12 years old, working in a pizzeria after school. His love for italian food followed him to his adult years, leaving his engineering degree for an extended trip to Italy to explore his passion for the country’s cuisine. 400 Gradi’s launch in 2008 has since expanded across melbourne and other parts of the world.


If it’s the authentic Italian restaurant you’re after, you can’t miss 400 Gradi. 400 Gradi adheres to the guidelines of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) — the world authority on traditional Neapolitan Pizza. Johnny was the first Australian inducted into the AVPN and is the principal of Australasia for the association — you can’t get more authentic than that.
