Paul Spinoglio

Silvio's Italiano

Introducing Paul Spinoglio, the heart and soul behind Silvio's Italiano. Paul, a cherished Coff’s Harbour resident and owner of the popular JBN Café at Park Beach Plaza, has brought his long-held dream to life through this unique venue. Silvio's Italiano is more than just a place to eat; it's a tribute to Paul's father, Silvio, an Italian immigrant who embraced Australia as a land of opportunity after World War II. Silvio's journey from cutting cane to becoming a restaurateur and a publican left an indelible mark on Paul, shaping his profound understanding of hospitality. Drawing inspiration from their shared love for food, wine, and meaningful conversations, Paul has crafted Silvio's Italiano to symbolise his father's legacy. The 160-seat café and bar, complete with a Vesuvio wood-fired pizza oven, echoes the essence of Italian culture. With hand-made pasta dishes, Italian beer on tap, and a cozy bar for cocktails and wines, the venue reflects their passion for authentic flavours.
