My fingerprints are in every part of Tocco while you will usually see me on the floor chatting and making sure you have an amazing experience I also love to spend time in the kitchen and particular talking with my dough and playing with the pizza oven.”

Enzo Ninivaggi – Our Executive Chef Enzo and Arturo have known each other for many years. After receiving a Michelin Star while working at Colour Hotel on Lake Garda Enzo and his family decided Brisbane and Arturo’s Tocco Italiano was a journey of adventure they wanted to take.
