48h Pizza e Gnocchi Bar South Yarra

Its biggest claim to fame is as the home of Australia's best pizza, but, as the name suggests, 48h Pizza e Gnocchi Bar has a few more tricks up its sleeve. With two southside outposts, the restaurant's offering is inspired by the authentic Italian flavours owners Fabio Biscaldi and Michele Circhirillo grew up with. That translates to a generous range of classic gnocchi dishes, most crafted on gluten-free flour for a lighter, softer finish.

Though, with around 15 varieties on offer (most of them gluten-free), you're faced with pretty some tough decisions. Try the activated charcoal-infused pecorino gnocchi — tossed in a cheese wheel with cherry tomato sauce, pecorino and tomatoes — or perhaps the seasonal al tartufo, teaming porcini, asiago, house-made sausage and truffle paste.

And, if you're hooked after that, sign up to one of the restaurant's popular monthly gnocchi masterclasses.
