IL PADRINO Mobile Woodfire Pizza catering based on the Mornington Peninsula is the culmination of years of international experience and a passion for quality wood fired pizza. Ultimately resulting in the introduction of the IL PADRINO Mobile Woodfired Pizza truck.

Nino apprenticed with many of regional Italy's finest pizza chefs, where they learned the subtleties, skills and knowledge required to achieve pizza perfection... della pizza perffeta!

The joy of being surrounded by people having fun while feasting on our delicious pizzas gave us the vision to build the IL PADRINO mobile pizzeria.

We have certainly grown over the years and have 2 mobile wood fired kitchens. Our Il Padrino food trailers consist of a wood fired oven, mounted on a custom built trailer, with all of the features of a true self-contained commercial kitchen, including food grade stainless steel surfaces, refrigeration, prep benches sinks and hand basins, hot and cold running water and integrated waste facilities, all compliant with Australian standards for food preparation and hygiene.
