Australian Open 2019

400 Gradi Serves Up!


Heading to watch the tennis at the Australian Open this summer? Don’t miss a chance to get a serve of Italian cuisine before heading in to watch the pro athletes serve up action on the court.

Positioned with Aperol on Gram Slam Oval, tennis-goers will have the perfect opportunity to grab a spritz and a slice of pizza – just remember to drink responsibly of course. Is there a better way to experience the tennis? We didn’t think so.

For those fans that can’t make it to Rod Laver Arena, there’s no need to miss out. Order a couple of our award-winning margherita pizzas, before heading into Zero Gradi in Brunswick – right next door to 400 Gradi – to pick up a tub of Aperol Zero: Aperol infused Italian gelato packed with the flavour of sweet orange and just a subtle hint of bitterness.

Created by the tastemakers of 400 Gradi and Aperol, the limited edition Aperol Zero will be the sweet treat you need while watching the tennis from the comfort of your own home! And with the mercury rising in Melbourne, there’s no better time to keep down the heat with a scoop or three of Zero Gradi gelato.

400 Gradi founder Johnny Di Francesco and chief gelato maker Matteo Veronese worked closely with Aperol to create a flavour that brings a taste of European summer to Melbourne city, and also gives a nod to a celebrated cocktail.

Scoops of this hand-churned gelato are available every day during summer, along with the traditional Italian flavours you adore: chocolate, bacio, pistachio, hazelnut and margherita if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, plus many more.
