Our Story

The Year Is 1973:

Gala Supreme wins the Melbourne Cup, Alvin Purple is the number one movie in Australia, the Sydney Opera House is officially opened and Papa Gino’s opens its doors for business. Papa Gino’s has been part of the Carlton landscape for more than 50 years, still under the original ownership of the Brosca Family. Many things have changed in Lygon Street Carlton but not Papa Gino’s, still serving the generous portions of food that has made it a Carlton landmark. So come in and try our fabulous food and find out for yourself why Papa Gino’s has remained one of the most popular restaurants in Carlton.


Fresh and great quality produce is at the heart of everything we do. We strive to deliver the authentic. 





We look forward to welcoming you and your guests, like family, and like friends.
