Café Gigi in Sydney is the latest success story of the Fuscaldo family, which has a long and rich history in the Australian foodservice scene spanning more than half a century. Arriving in Australia in the 50s as migrants, Giovanni and Lucia Fuscaldo embarked on a courageous voyage that would take them from Rome to Melbourne – and the new life that awaited.

A brilliant cook, Lucia’s culinary skills soon began to get appreciated by the local Italian community. They started a side business making fresh pasta and sauces from their humble home kitchen to meet the growing demands for authentic Italian cooking. This side business eventually grew and by 1964, the Fuscaldo family opened their first fresh pasta retail shop in Melbourne.

Today almost 60 years later, the next generation of the Fuscaldo family is keeping that tradition alive, managing their ever-growing portfolio of food business with passion and innovation.
