Where It All Began
Nestled amongst the rugged cliffs of central Italy, the small town of Villa Santa Maria emerges from the southern slope of Monte Vecchio. Known throughout Italy as “the homeland of chefs,” it is here where the Bar Novanta story begins.
It is in Rome, in 1982, that Amalia’s second child and co-founder of Bar Novanta, Barbara, was born. The young Barbara quickly proved that the true taste of Italian cuisine runs deep in the blood. Growing up and working closely with her mother, Barbara not only learned and then perfected Amalia’s unique dishes, but went on to add her own distinct touch to the cuisine as well as going on to specialize in Italian dolci.
In 1990, the family moved to Melbourne, Australia. Little did they know back then that in just under three decades, they would be bringing the uniquely blended tastes of the Capital city, and Villa Santa Maria, to the streets of Melbourne’s north.
1990 was the year a proud culinary tradition landed on the tarmac of Tullamarine airport.
1990 was the year Bar Novanta landed in Australia.
2018 is the year it all comes together.
