Founder of Polito Wood Fire Ovens, Antonio Polito, migrated to Australia from Paravati in Southern Italy, where he developed a passion for wood fire cooking.


Introducing the wood fire oven to Australia, Antonio found people were eager to embrace the joys of Italian cuisine. As the business developed and grew, Antonio passed on his skills to the younger generation of his family, who have strived to keep apace of the latest design and innovation developments, while maintaining their commitment to preserving the art of authentic wood fire cooking.

Established in 1988, Polito Wood Fire Ovens is a Melbourne- based, family owned and operated business. Handcrafted and built to last a lifetime, a Polito Wood Fire Oven is designed to withstand rain, hail, shine, and everything in between!
