Series overview

Gino D’Acampo is back in his beloved Italy for this brand new seven-part series, but this time he is joined by his wife Jess and their three children, as he takes his family to explore the hidden gems of Sardinia and the very best of Southern Italy.  

Gino wants his British born and bred bambinos to discover their Italian roots and where his passion for food began. He takes them on a journey from the Mediterranean island of Sardinia to his crazy hometown, Naples and from the stunning Cilento coast to rustic Calabria and sun-soaked Puglia.
