We are excited to announce that on Thursday 9 February 2017, chef and restaurateur Alessandro Pavoni along with his partners from their respected two hatted Mosman restaurant, Ormeggio at The Spit, open Sotto Sopra in Newport on Sydney’s northern beaches. The new trattoria has the relaxed approach of a neighbourhood restaurant but uses sophisticated cooking techniques, centered around an Italian wood-fired oven.
Joining the established partnership of restaurateurs Alessandro Pavoni, Bill Drakopoulos and Victor Moya (also head chef at Ormeggio), is Mattia Rossi, who comes to Sotto Sopra as co-owner and head chef, from Rome via Ormeggio and Chiosco, where he was previously head chef.
Pavoni says, “Growing up in the mountains of Italy we often cooked on fire. With Sotto Sopra, I am so excited to bring this food of my childhood to my Sydney home, while utilising incredible Australian produce. I hope that this relaxed neighbourhood restaurant will soon become a part of the local community and a go-to venue for authentic Italian food on Sydney’s northern beaches”
