Doltone House venue and catering collection, now in the twenty first year since the Signorelli family commenced the leading hospitality empire, formally announce and celebrate three milestones today, National Family Business Day, 19 September 2016.


Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf has won the Function / Convention Centre Caterer category at the 2016 NSW Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence held this week in Sydney.


The Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently judged awards program that celebrates exceptional service and culinary talent across the state. The Awards for Excellence is the only program in Australia where the judging criteria is determined by consumers who rank what is important to them in the dining experience.


The Awards are judged by an independent team of trained judges who anonymously visit the venues to determine the winners. The scores are based on the entire dining experience from food to the customer service experienced when the judges anonymously dine. Doltone House now moves forward to the National Awards programme.


A few weeks earlier, at a venue showcase that hosted some 800 event organisers throughout the course of a day filled with a programme of great food, entertainment, industry experts and three inspirational guest speakers, Doltone House launched SoHo, a new event space at our historic Jones Bay Wharf location designed by award winning interior design, Greg Natale. SoHo is ideal for C-level meetings, lunches, dinners and dining with an exceptional elevated view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.


Read more about our exciting milestones as we officially launch our new website that has three main sources of inspiration; business events, weddings and other celebrations that can be referenced at ease with a gallery of more than 1200 hero images of the venue locations, food, styling and What’s On pages that is set to fill the social calendar.


“We are thrilled to achieve these key milestones and reap the benefits of the legacy of our family business to become an industry leader”, said Executive Chairman of Doltone House, Paul Signorelli.


2016 continues to set the bar that Doltone House is renowned for; consistent high quality, distinction and integrity in all areas of the business. Watch SKY NEWS on Tuesday 20th September, 730pm as Peter Switzer talks to our CEO Anna Cesarano on all things family business.
