About us


Onde was founded by Gerry Acquaro in 2002, when our first Extra Virgin Chilli Olive Oil was produced and bottled in a  2 Lt wave bottle with functional gold tap which has become the trade-mark of  “Onde”. The name was chosen one evening whilst enjoying a few glasses of  wine with friends, when it was suggested that we use the Italian word for wave (Onde) to reflect the unique shape of our bottle. Further family input was provided by Nadelle Panozzo (friend of the family) who at the young age of 16 years designed our logo of which we are very proud.

I saw a need for Traditional Home-made products in the market place. Therefore I utilised my Italian experience of cooking and my background to market & develop products with a distinct Mediterranean flavour with flair and elegance.

On the 1st May 2007  Onde Fine Food Licensed Café  was open with owner Gerry Acquaro created a distinctly unique & quaint Tuscan style Mediterranean café. Located in the picturesque coastal village and quiet back street of Mornington Victoria. Onde manufactures & retails unique home-made gourmet products such as infused extra virgin olive oils, marinated olives, goat cheese, traditional Italian biscuits, chocolates products, nougats together with selected local & imported exquisite giftware.
Onde has become a multi award winning café. It provides a tranquil, friendly and relaxed environment, causal dining with innovative traditional freshly cooked Italian homemade gourmet meals, delicious cakes for breakfast or lunch, and enjoying casual platters al fresco in our front and private rear Tuscan style courtyard.
