Bam Bam Italian is brought to you by the hospitality folk behind The General Food Store (est. 2011); The Grub Club Event Catering (est. 2014) and Incy Wincy (est. 2017).
We are so pleased to be sharing our passion for wholesome Italian food and vibrant hospitality with our fellow hills residents and their families.
Owner Paul 'Dougie' Douglas has had over twenty years experience as a chef; beginning his career working in some of London's top fine dining restaurants before traveling to New Zealand and Australia where he continued to gain experience in the hospitality industry.
In 2011 Paul and Belinda teamed up and launched their first venture, The General Food Store. Over the years, their customers have requested more of this hospitality, and so the desire to provide the region with a new restaurant experience was born.
Both Paul and Belinda have traveled to Italy a number of times to visit family and explore the many beautiful cities on offer. With each visit, they fall more in love with the cuisine and hospitality that is ingrained in Italian culture. Paul has worked at many Italian establishments including: Sartoria (London); Restaurant 2, under the guise of Marco Lori (South Yarra); and Ladro (Prahran). He understands that Italian food is more than just pizza and pasta. It's about fresh, quality produce and seasonal eating. Something we are truly passionate about.
We look forward to feeding you!
