a'Mare at Crown Sydney
“It has been a dream of mine to create the best classical Italian restaurant in Australia. I am inspired by the nostalgic romance of dining out; when service was paramount, food was simply delicious and the maître-d knew your name. This is the essence of the a’Mare experience”
Celebrating Italian heritage and romance, a’Mare Bar emulates a nostalgia for glamourous old school Italy with a magnificent harbourside vista. Merging tradition with new world techniques, enjoy elevated, classic cocktails crafted from boutique Italian spirits and seasonal local produce, as well as an extensive vermouth and amaro selection. A delectable range of small plates accompanies the bespoke beverage offering, all served with a side of cheeky Italian charm from Bar Manager Mattia Arnaboldi and his team.
A luxe setting with details nodding to the blue sea hues of the waterside backdrop, pull up a seat inside to take in the intimate theatrics of the bar, or immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the harbour on our outdoor terrace. No booking required, walk-ins welcome.
For the love of Italy
A passion for Italian nostalgia
The wine list has been meticulously curated by Francesca Pellegrino who is known as the conduttore of the a’Mare wine selection. Each of the nearly three hundred references in this sizeable cellar has been carefully selected and allows guests to explore key varietals and regions. With an emphasis on Italian producers, historical roots are also celebrated with a selection of vintages. Let Francesca and her team guide you through a personalised wine pairing or lose yourself in the classical and regional list.
