Modernity and Tradition

Over the past 40 years, the Fasano Group has experienced four significant moments. It began with the opening of the first restaurant, where Gero Fasano discovered his passion for gastronomy. The inauguration of the second Fasano defined his gastronomic identity. The third milestone was the opening of the Fasano Hotel in São Paulo, introducing the Group to a new sector. The fourth crucial moment was the partnership with JHSF in 2007, driving international expansion. With 10 hotels operating in Brazil, the United States, and Uruguay, Fasano’s excellence also extends to its 30 restaurants, in addition to the Emporio Fasano.
