Navarra venues pop•up•project dine-in experience located in Sydney’s inner west will be returning
after lockdown restrictions lift with an outdoor Italian dining experience taking you back to Italy.

The famous pop•up dining movement where you can finally dine-in and socialise is where Navarra
Venues turned their luxurious event venue into a temporary pop•up•project.

“Our freedom to spend time with family and friends in a social setting has been taken away and now
people will return and be able to have the choice to select a pop•up•project. This is our new concept
that was born out of lockdown. What is even better is that a major pop•up dining under the stars on
the bay will also be available a week after October 11,” said CEO Sal Navarra

“When lockdown first hit our venues and only dining resumed we were in an awkward position as we
predominately focus on corporate, social, and wedding events. This left our venues barren, not a
single person on site and that meant no money was being generated from a business perspective,
and no laughter or joy could be heard in our spaces,” Mr Navarra said

“Dining in was permitted yet events were left behind and this is how we developed the idea of the
pop•up•project movement. Giovannino, Marie, and I are always innovative in our approach as we
carry on what my Sicilian parents Filippo and Sarina Navarra first began. Our Montage venue was
where it was most popular and so the baby was born. A temporary dining setting will be available for
people to gather, eat fine food, and socialise,” he said

At present we have the Glassroom, DV Terrace, The Lobby, Marquee Terrace, and now our Montage
dining under the stars is set temporarily in Montage’s courtyard. By day Montage is operating as a
café and at night Montage upon reopening will transform into an Italian Piazza filled with couples,
families, and friends.

This is where the Italian atmosphere is recreated and will run free for everyone fully vaccinated as a
start and continue once full freedoms are reached as you dine outside on Piazza Montage. Executive
chef Carlo took the time to fine tune a menu along with his team that will please all taste buds ranging
from arancini pumpkin to a prawns hot pot as your starter right through to a selection of pasta,
burgers, and woodfired pizza. This will also include a selection of desserts such as affogato, freshly
made gelato and pizza alla nutella.

If you choose to dine-in in one of our internal pop•up•projects at Montage there will be a choice of
three menus to choose from catering to all palettes with add ons and swaps to your delight. Nothing is
more Italian than your traditional starter of Italian smallgoods, olives and wood fire Pugliese focaccia,
Italian Sicilian pasta with rich tomato sauce and fried eggplants, twice roast pork belly, or even a
sharing side of rucola, radicchio, parmigiano, pear, balsamic ( fresh and crispy salad with an Italian
touch). In your sharing dessert, a delectable assorted Sicilian cannoli cannot go astray.

The three menus start from $109 per person and this dine-in experience is nothing short of simply
enjoying as they say in Italy life’s little pleasures where you can have a glass of wine or two and
converse with your dearest friends and family

“As they say in Italy ‘buon appetito’ and may I see you at our Lilyfields’s waterfront Montage to
experience a little bit of Italy right here in Sydney,” said CEO Sal Navarra
