What began as a passion for cooking on the streets of Plati, in Calabria Italy, has found its way to Wagga Wagga!

Our story begins when Giuseppe’s parents, Pasquale and Maria Barbaro, migrated from Italy, to Griffith, NSW. A farming family, the Barbaro’s believed fresh produce to be the basis of a wonderful meal, and instilled this belief in their youngest, Giuseppe.

From the time he was old enough to walk and talk, Giuseppe’s passion for cooking flourished, and as he grew, he soaked up the rich influences of his family and the community around him, as he learnt to cook in the traditional way.

At 15, he began working his first job in a pizzeria, and when he came of age, Giuseppes restaurant in Griffith was born, allowing the diversely multicultural community to experience authentic, soul-nourishing Italian flavours, made from the heart.

Today, our story finds us in Wagga Wagga, where Giuseppe’s traditional food is being delivered by Fatima Zaidi, who has known and worked with the Barbaro family for 10 years now.

Like Giuseppe, Fatima discovered her passion for cooking through the Barbaro family recipes, that have been passed down through generations, for many years.

There truly is no clearer a definition of ‘family-run restaurant,’ than Giuseppe’s!
