Our Story

Melbourne’s very first and only pizza and gnocchi bar, we opened our South Yarra restaurant in 2015. Following its success and warm welcome from the local community, we opened our Elsternwick restaurant in 2017.

Fresh produce, authentic flavors, and the best of Italian culture and hospitality are at the heart of all that we do here at 48h.

We serve locations around Elsternwick, including Elwood, Ripponlea, Garden Vale, Brighton, East Hampton, Ormond, Malvern East, Carnegie, St Kilda East, Caulfield South and North.

Why 48h? This is the perfect amount of time we need to leaven our dough to bring diners light, fragrant and aromatic pizzas, just like you would expect in Italy!
