There’s a lot to love about Italian food. After all, it’s known the world over as the comfort food of choice.
The good news is that you don’t have to travel all the way to Naples to try authentic Italian food! If you’re on the lookout for an Italian restaurant in Mildura, look no further than 400 Gradi.
From wood-fired pizzas to hand-crafted cocktails, we aim to introduce everyone to the colourful flavours of Italy.
The secret to authentic Italian food is to use the freshest ingredients possible. Whether it’s focaccia pizza or gnocchi, Italian cooking is all about using simple ingredients to make a filling dish.
Did you know that pasta shapes absorb sauce differently? Thinner pastas are best for light sauces (think olive oil-based dishes), while wide strips such as pappardelle can sop up thicker sauces that are cream-based. All of our pasta is made fresh by hand to ensure that you get the perfect bite with every dish you order. Making pasta by hand also allows us to shape the pasta and get the most flavour out of our dishes.
If you’re craving a hefty meal, our Cassarece N’Duja comes with Italian sausages coated in a rich tomato broth (and Grana Padano cheese, of course). Want something lighter to save room for gelato? Try our Linguine Fruitti Di Mare, made with fresh seafood.
Of course, preparing Italian food doesn’t just stop at the ingredients. 400 Gradi takes its name from how we prepare our pizza: fired at 400 degrees for 90 seconds. Our head chef, Johnny Di Francesco, travelled around Italy to learn about preparing Italian food straight from the source.
We’re serious about quality, which is why we’ve made sure that our pizza adheres to the standards of the Associazone Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN). AVPN, founded in 1984, is the authority when it comes to preparing Neapolitan pizza. We strive to keep these standards with every pizza we make — no exceptions.
Oh, and it goes without saying that our menu also includes our famous Margherita pizza! Don’t just take our word for it: 400 Gradi’s Margherita pizza was honoured as the world’s best pizza in 2014 at the Campionato Mondiale della Pizza in Parma, Italy.
At our Italian restaurant in Mildura, we make sure each slice of pizza is made with ripe San Marzano tomatoes, Fior Di Latte and fresh basil. Handmade every time, just for you. This dedication to authenticity is why our restaurant has been the best Italian restaurant in Mildura, Brunswick and the rest of Melbourne since opening in 2008.
At 400 Gradi, we’ve carefully crafted a menu to give you a taste of what Italian food is all about. If you’re ever lost when it comes to ordering, let us know what you’re craving, and we’ll be happy to recommend a dish or two.
Our menu extends beyond pizza and pasta — our secondi menu incorporates fish straight from the market, grass-fed steak and choice veal cuts. These dishes are perfect for when you want to try something new.
We think that food is best enjoyed with friends and family, and this is especially true when it comes to Italian food. That is why we built our Italian restaurant in Mildura around the idea of making memories around good food.
In an effort to make Italian food accessible for all, our menu includes dishes that are gluten, nut and dairy-free. If you have any allergies, please let us know, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
Our menu also includes vegan options, including vegan cheese for your pizza orders. Everybody should have the opportunity to taste Italy’s famous dishes, which is why we want to make it as accessible as possible.
If you’re looking for a place to host your event or gathering, we’d love to have you! Just let us know your plans, and let us do the rest. We have a base menu that includes pizza, pasta, antipasti, desserts and drinks — of course, we’re also happy to work with you if you want a customised menu.
No matter which option you choose, we recommend including our famous gelato piaggio ape to add just the right amount of whimsy and a gorgeous photo opportunity.
If you want a more intimate get-together, we have a secret margarita cocktail that we’ve come up with specifically for memorable nights. And for those looking to start their weekend right, we have our bottomless cocktail special every Saturday and Sunday starting at 3 PM. Aside from cocktail jugs, why not try some of our house wine and beer to pair with your meal?
Whether you’re looking to treat yourself to a nice meal or want to get together with your family and friends, we’d love to have you.
Over the years, we at 400 Gradi have built up a reputation for offering the most authentic taste of Italy you can find in Mildura and around Melbourne. While we think everyone should visit Italy at least once, you don’t have to wait for your plane to land before getting to try the local cuisine.
If you want to take your cultural immersion a step further, we also run pizza-making classes led by none other than Chef Johnny himself! This masterclass is a great opportunity to learn all about preparing pizza the right way, from rolling out your dough to taking your pizza out of the oven at just the right time.
