n 1986, George and Patrizia Simone embarked on a journey to North East Victoria, a region that fondly reminded them of Italy, to open Simones restaurant. Patrizia presented dishes fondly remembered from her childhood and Perugia. With Nonna Maria making her traditional pasta and George introducing local and Italian wines, this family affair started to pave the way for the future.
Being recognized and awarded with many accolades from The Age Good Food Guide and Gourmet Traveller alike, the restaurant became an institution of North East Victoria. In 2009, Patrizia was created a Legend of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in recognition of her chef skills and passionate promotion of seasonality and regionality through her work with local food and wine producers.
Now, Anthony and Hope Simone lead the way to continue the family passion and tradition. They have both worked in leading restaurants both internationally and regionally. They now add their skills and interpretation to the successful evolution of Simones Restaurant.
