About

a'Mare at Crown Sydney

Inspired by the nostalgia of dining out when service was paramount and food was simply delicious, acclaimed Chef and Restaurateur Alessandro Pavoni welcomes his latest venture a’Mare to the Sydney landscape. With an ever-changing menu that evolves with the finest seasonal Australian produce and Italian ingredients, dishes are focused on the simplicity of these ingredients, the regions from which they came and the stories behind them.

“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 what I envisage for a’Mare at Crown Sydney.”

Experience

For the love of Italy

Inspired by the nostalgia of dining out when service was paramount and food was simply delicious, acclaimed Chef and Restaurateur Alessandro Pavoni welcomes his latest venture a’Mare to the Sydney landscape.

The a’Mare dining room is inspired by the palazzi of old school Italy - Venice, Milan, Rome and Lake Garda with distinctly Italian details throughout the dining room including luxurious furnishings, and the stunning ornate ceiling with the magnificent blue hues of the harbour backdrop.

Food philosophy

A passion for Italian nostalgia

Alessandro’s love and passion for Italy is evident through the dishes and his recipes, a means to represent the nostalgia of his childhood in Italy. With an ever-changing menu that evolves with the finest Italian produce coupled with the inspiration from local growers and suppliers, dishes are focused on the simplicity of ingredients, the regions from which they came and the stories behind them. Enjoy classic Italian dishes with an a’Mare twist and be enticed by the theatrics of finishing touches being completed at the table to deliver a memorable dining experience.

Wine

The cellar

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 his team guide you through a personalised wine pairing or guests are encouraged to lose themselves in the classical and regional list.
