In 2015 Tonino Amadio, who hails from Le Marche, a region in the centre of Italy that hugs the Adriatic Sea, created Just Italy...a small Italian pasta shop nestled in the heart of Oakleigh. The philosophy was very simple; to offer authentic Italian food, house made products and uncompromising hospitality.
Three years later, Tonino met Sam Colosimo. A general conversation about business and their love of Italian food commenced, as did a new chapter at Just Italy as Sam joined the business.
Although the business continues to grow with new locations opening around Melbourne, Tonino and Sam's core value remains the same; re-creating Italy in Australia.
One point of difference at Just Italy is Friday's Aperitivo Night...
Sam says, “Most people don’t believe us when we first tell them the food is free if they buy a drink. But what we’re doing here is extremely common in Italy. When you go to a bar for aperitivo, you also enjoy free food.”
Come on down to a Just Italy location near you and experience a little piece of Italy.
See you at the bar.
