It is with much sadness that we inform you that Beppi Polese, founder of Beppi's Restaurant, passed away on Tuesday 22nd March after a short illness.  

Beppi was 90.

As a key part of his world, we hope that you can join us to celebrate the life of this wonderful man.  Generous, courageous, traditional yet refined, he will not be forgotten.  We will ensure that his legacy lives on at our place - Beppi's.

There will be a public service, next Wednesday, the 30th March at St Mary's Cathedral, St Mary's Rd, Sydney.  This will commence at 10am.

As you can imagine, we are all deeply saddened by the loss and feel very blessed to have shared him with you - the customers he lived to serve.

Kindest wishes,

The Polese family and all the team at the restaurant.
