A taste of Italy in Coffs Harbour

Silvio’s Italiano is founded by Paul Spinoglio. Silvio’s Italiano  is a tribute to his father, Silvio, an Italian immigrant that came out to Australia on the boats looking for opportunity after World War II. Silvio started life cutting cane, before becoming a restauranteur, and a publican. Paul’s father taught him the fundamentals of everything he knows about hospitality. Silvio’s Italiano represents the great man that he was and also all those things that Paul and his father both loved to enjoy together like food, wine, and good conversation.
