Our Story

The south of Italy, is full of history, wonder, and romance.

It is often referred to as Italy’s heart, especially when it comes to the gulf of Naples.

The wonders of the Azure Coast, Sorrento, Positano, Capri, Amalfi etc… Stir your emotions and give you visions of a Southern Italian holiday filled with colour, movement, culture, and people who love to celebrate, life, love, family and food.

Salvatore’s address of his ancestral home in Italy was ‘Via Campanella 46’.

From an early age his passion for food was ignited, encouraged and nurtured by his family. Farming, hunting, growing, gathering, harvesting and the preservation of foods were a way of life. Being the youngest in a family of 10, much of his life was spent in the very busy family kitchen with his beloved Grandmother, Mother and Sisters, who would prepare feasts for the family on a daily basis. Many of the family traditions of old were passed down to him, and he gladly shares these traditions right here with you at Via Campanella Cucina + Bar.

Salvatore truly hopes that you will enjoy his hospitality as he brings you a taste of Sorrento right here in Melbourne.

Buon Appetito!
