Some seven years ago we escaped what was fast becoming an overpopulated town on the outskirts of Geelong in search for a more tranquil, semi-rural lifestyle and following the recommendation of a long term local resident and friend Tom, we eagerly assessed our options. It really only took "one look" and we fell in love with the former patch of barley field, we were destined to purchase, build upon, and ultimately call our home. All that said, we haven't looked back.
We feel extremely proud to be Bannockburnians and to have been accepted as part of its wide reaching community, so much so that as a family, we've developed a strong desire to make a positive contribution through giving some of us back. It is for this reason, and in conjunction with our love of both Italian cuisine and it's culture, that taking ownership of Mainstreet Pizza & Pasta was the only and obvious choice.
What crazier example could there possibly be than to be both a Local resident and a Local Business Owner, thereby becoming totally accountable for our actions and reputation, especially when the business provides the popular, much loved and so often desired pizza and pasta. Well if nothing else proves our willingness, that should!
Furthermore, and as the new local owners and managers of Mainstreet Pizza & Pasta we are extremely excited, proud and passionately driven to both reintroduce and reestablish that which Vince (Mainstreet Pizza & Pasta's founder and original owner) and we, consider to be of utmost importance to our loyal customers and the community at large ...... two words "CUSTOMER SERVICE"!
Italian cuisine has always provided a means of bringing people together. Even the Italian term "alfresco" is a prime and common example of one envisioning the banquets and feasts comprising gourmet food prepared from home grown or local produce, the regional wine, and the merriment shared amongst the gatherings of family or friends, all whilst relaxing, joke telling, reminiscing on old days, and creating further new memories. Of course, there's also the (very) loud laughter.
According to real Italian sources (our parents) the traditional meaning of the term "alfresco" is to eat in the open air, which as further defined by them, was generally necessary due to the size of the gathering, versus the host's inability to cater for such large numbers within their internal kitchen and confined living spaces within their homes. Therefore, back in their day, it actually wasn't so fashionable, but more of a necessity.
