For La Osteria manager Paul
Celestino, continuing the family
tradition of offering Canberrans
authentic Italian cuisine was a
natural, and almost inevitable, career
"My parents opened up La Rustica
24 years ago in this spot, so I ve
grown up in the industry," he said.
"I was four years old when my
parents opened this space. It s always
been in my blood."
Despite taking a break and selling
the business to his cousins in 2004,
the Celestino family returned to the
hospitality industry, opening La
Cantina restaurant at Narrabundah
When his cousins decided to move
on from La Rustica, the opportunity
to either lease out the restaurant or
come back to pursue another
business venture arose.
"That s when I made the decision
that I wanted to be in restaurants
again," Mr Celestino said.
Having run the restaurant in the
early 90s, Mr Celestino said for his
family Kingston always felt like

Proximity to Legislative Assembly a priority for offices
The ACT government has called a
Registration of Interest process for the
private sector to build new or renew
existing office space in Civic to
accommodate ACT public servants.
The main criteria for eligibility to
participate in the ROI are that the
accommodation must be located
within a 10-minute walk of the
Legislative Assembly and is able to
provide 40,000 square metres of office
The need for renewed
accommodation has been identified by
the Whole of Government
Accommodation Strategy and is
supported by the Governing the City
State report written by Dr Allan
Hawke. The strategy recommends that
the ACT government adopt a hub and
satellite approach that will see the
long-term administrative and policy
functions consolidated into one or
more buildings in Civic.

apprentices designed to develop prac-

cooking nutritious meals.

access to affordable, secure housing
was critical to successfully complet-
ing their training.
Apprentice House has recently
opened its doors to apprentices
following construction of the new
