Stars of Wollongong 2022

Owner I Nonno's Olive Tree Cafe Albion Park

Introducing local barista extraordinaire, Mario! As the owner and operator of Nonno’s Olive Tree Café, Mario has a love for coffee and people. In his workday, he will meet and serve a variety of people, and this has fueled his passion for interacting with his local community. He says that the best part of his job is that he gets to interact with his customers and meet new people. 

Mario strives to put his time and energy into Nonno’s and likes to go out on each limb for his customers, he just hopes that he won’t pull a limb with his dance moves! He has joined Stars of Wollongong to make a difference and show his support for Cancer Council. While he has not had any dance experience, his wife sure thinks he can move, and we cannot wait to see him busting a move on the stage.

Let’s go Mario!
