Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers
Love gnocchi? You’re in the right place. After making a mark on Brisbane’s casual-dining scene with its Australian-first gnoccheria concept in Paddington and more recently with a second venue in South Bank, Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers arrived on the Gold Coast in early 2020. The 60-seat restaurant is located within Smith Collective – a residential and retail hub in Southport – and specialises in authentic handmade Italian gnocchi. The menu is kept intentionally simple with a choice of six gnocchi variations, plus sides and snacks like marinated olives, Italian salad, truffle-salted potato chips, and golden salt-and-pepper calamari. The gnoccheria is equipped with an all-Italian wine list – plus, a different Queensland winemaker will also be featured, rotating monthly for a local option. There’s also spritzes by SOFI on tap, bottled Italian beers and a range of digestifs. Just be sure to leave room for the Sicilian ricotta cannoli, a pot of tiramisu or a slice of Nonna’s lemon cake.
