FROM ITALY, WITH LOVE

Hospitality is in our blood.
Our founder, Filippo Navarra left Sicily and journeyed to Australian shores, where his instinct for entertaining and old-fashioned hospitality came into play and was extremely well received. Growing from one venue, to another (another, and another…), Navarra is now Sydney’s leading venue and hospitality group – influencing the game with innovation and harnessed creativity.
