Gavino started his catering career at the age of 18 with the Italian air force, as part of the ground crew for the famous military acrobatic flying squadron ‘Le Frecce Tricolori’ (hence the logo). After he left the air-force in 1973 he travelled to England leaving his home town Porto Torres in Sardinia, Italy. He later fell in love with his wife Karen. After 36 years of marriage, three children (Gian-Franco, Bonny and Christian) and a 12 year break in Italy, Gavino has come back to Sutton Coldfield to open his new restaurant Gavino’s!
Gavino’s is an authentic Italian restaurant where the whole family is involved: Meet Gavino and Karen the owners, Gian-Franco the director, Bonny the secretary, Antonio the bar tender. Meet our top Chef Edoardo from Rome who is passionate about every dish that leaves his kitchen.
