Our Story

Silvio’s Italiano is founded by Paul Spinoglio, a local resident and owner of the popular JBN Café at Park Beach Plaza.

Silvio’s Italiano was a long-time dream for Paul. The venue is a tribute to his father, Silvio. He was 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. He worked side by side with him for many years in the Whitsunday Islands, and they travelled together as well.

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.

It is a unique venue that offers an Italian style deli that is attached to a 160-seat casual style café and bar. The café is open breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and includes a fantastic Vesuvio wood-fired pizza oven that will offer traditional Italian style pizzas made from 100% Italian stone ground flour.

There will be Italian beer on tap, fresh hand-made pasta dishes, and a cosy bar to enjoy cocktails and wines.

Silvio’s Italiano is located in Park Beach Plaza, on the northern end opposite the Westpac Bank. For those that haven’t visited Park Beach Plaza lately, you will be amazed at the transformation of this end of the plaza. It has been re-invigorated with undercover parking, covered walkways, easy access, and is fast becoming the entry of preference for many visiting the shopping centre.

We can’t wait to see you soon at Silvio’s Italiano.
