Ormeggio Executive Chef Alessandro Pavoni on the Ormeggio Terazza overlooking middle harbour

Alessandro Pavoni

Executive Chef

Alessandro began his career in Brescia, in Italy’s north, working at Carlo Magno with the famous Iginio Massari and Giuseppe Maffioli. After working in various Michelin star venues such as La Rotonde in France and the two Michelin starred Villa Fiordaliso on Lake Garda, Alessandro broadened his culinary horizons working in Bermuda at the famous Restaurant Lido before moving to Sydney permanently in 2003.

 

He assumed the role of Executive Chef at the Park Hyatt in 2005, managing a team of over 30 chefs. In 2009, Alessandro’s dream of owning his own restaurant became a reality with Ormeggio at The Spit. Ormeggio has been a hatted restaurant since opening, achieving national acclaim in 2011, appearing on Australia’s most loved cooking show, MasterChef. Alessandro then expanded to the opposite side of the jetty to open a casual trattoria, Chiosco by Ormeggio in 2014, which evokes memories of summers spent on the coastline of Italy.

As a highly regarded pioneer of contemporary Italian cuisine, a’Mare is Pavoni’s latest venture, a classic fine dining experience showcasing elegant service and the finest seasonal ingredients which opened at Crown in Barangaroo in 2020.

Andrea Rezzi - Ormeggio.jpeg

Andrea Rezzi

Chef

Roman born Italian Chef Andrea completed his chef studies in Italy and worked in London with the famous Tuscan Frescobaldi family. This was a wonderful opportunity for Andrea to both explore his fine yet traditional Italian cooking, as well as excite him with the challenges of opening a new restaurant, learning a new language and experiencing a new culture. What a learning ground indeed. He moved on to Sardinia, in the famed Cala di Volpe hotel, the very same as Alessandro Pavoni’s experience, and onwards to various restaurants and hotels throughout Italy and London.

 

Andrea joined the Chiosco by Ormeggio team in 2021 and we were proud to have him begin his first foray into leading a team as Chef.

In 2024 Andrea stepped into the Chef role of our flagship Italian seafood fine-diner, Ormeggio at The Spit. It is exciting for Andrea to lean into his seafood skills, and continue to take inspiration from his Italian roots, albeit in a more contemporary and precise format. In his time at Chiosco he developed a loyal following of fans with his skills, technique, knowledge and overall ‘Italian-ness’. He proved himself as not only a great cook but also an ambitious, creative and reliable chef with a great passion for his work. Andrea is a welcome addition to the Ormeggio Team.

 

Jan-Broder Timm Ormeggio at the Spit Mosman Middle Harbour Restaurant Manager

Jan-Broder Timm

Restaurant Manager

Introducing Jan-Broder Timm, Ormeggio’s new Restaurant Manager 2023.

Having worked in multiple Michelin star venues in Europe, Jan arrived in Australia in 2016 looking for his next experience in the unique casual fine-dining scene in Sydney. With his skills, experience, wine knowledge and passion for the industry he enjoyed great career success since then, and fortunately for us chose to stay here! Working in Sydney and hearing guests and food critics refer to a great lunch or dinner as an ‘experience' rather than just a ‘meal’ profoundly affected Jan and brought a completely different aspect to how he viewed the hospitality profession.

You might recognise his face from his stint with our friends at Pilu at Freshwater, or from other iconic venues such as Park Hyatt Sydney and Cottage Point Inn.

Jan has joined Ormeggio as Restaurant Manager in 2023.
