– devoted to hospitality –
The idea was born shortly after the lockdown, Andrea and I spent nearly 3 months of solitude on my family’s property in Beaudesert; building vegetable gardens, cooking on open flame and sometimes doing absolutely nothing. Being given an unexpected amount of time to think about our lives and future, we quickly realised going back to a “normal” lifestyle was not going to be achievable, and so began the dream.
After a conversation with Mum in August 2020, (one that I started at 19 years old upon realising that hospitality was the best career in the world and refused to let anyone tell me otherwise), we discussed the possibilities, recognised the potential and Rosmarino began to take shape. What started as a cool, intimate wine bar with a few cheese boards and prosciutto, has now grown into a 175sqm restaurant with a menu aiming for a hat, and an out-door courtyard.
Thanks to Chef Dario Manca’s inspiring obsession with bread, flavours and modern Italian cuisine, our plans for Rosmarino skyrocketed. Now with less than 3 months to go before we open our doors, there is so much more work than we could have imagined, the days are getting very short, and we’re absolutely loving every second. We look forward to meeting you soon.
