48h treats patrons with an authentic Italian culinary experience - Expect to be welcomed with fervour whilst you sample artisanal specialties from Italy that are enhanced with the finest quality local ingredients.
The name 48h derives from the best practice of producing real pizza by making sure the dough has been leavened for 48 hours. At 48h, 48 hours is the minimum time required for the dough to rise. A dough that has been leavened for 48 hours with natural yeast produces an exquisite pizza base which is light, fragrant and wonderfully aromatic.
At 48h, virtuous patience is rewarded with luscious pizzas, packed with garden fresh ingredients. The La Norma was picture perfect and outstanding in flavour. Layers of cherry tomato sauce, fried eggplant, basil, onion, were teamed with a delightful fusion burrata and salty ricotta. Encircled with a puffy crisp crust, this pizza was superb.
Being a gnocchi bar, the restaurant boasts the widest selection of gnocchi we have ever seen in Melbourne. A popular gnocchi dish, the Pesto di menta featuring black charcoal gnocchi tossed in mint pesto, organic broccolini and walnut captivated with its hearty flavours.
For dessert, you cannot go past the 48h gelato and the faultless pannacotta - absolutely delicious!
