The 400 Gradi restaurant group is the creation of chef and V.P.N. Principal Johnny Di Francesco, whose family hail from Naples in Southern coastal Italy – the home of ‘world’s best’ pizza.
Johnny is the first Australian ever trained in Naples to the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana VPN rules and he’s the association’s Australasian Principal, travelling the region ensuring pizzerias are of the highest standard before officially inducting them into the Association.
Appearing regularly on the ‘Regional Italian Cuisine’ program and having appeared at the famous Caesars Palace during the Las Vegas International Pizza Expo, Johnny also regularly holds seasonal Masterclasses – fast becoming recognised as Melbourne’s Mr. Pizza!
With Johnny at the helm of 400 Gradi East, you’re guaranteed delicious, authentic Napolitan pizza.
