Sicilian-born award-winning chef Lino Sauro (Gattopardo, Singapore) helms the kitchen at Olio Kensington Street to show Sydney why Sicilian is the new Italian. The menu reflects a strong connection to Sauro’s Sicilian roots, pioneering freshly sourced, local produce and seafood. Sauro sources his signature olive oil – the base of all his dishes – from his family’s Sicilian farm. Located on the second floor, in the beautifully restored The Old Rum Store, Olio features a contemporary indoor dining room and rooftop terrazza overlooking Chippendale. Designed with a modern and inviting interior, Olio can cater for up to 150 people for cocktails, or 100 seated. For smaller groups the terrace can cater for 60 standing or 40 seated. Whether you are looking for a sit-down or stand-up function, a tantalising feast or a formal meeting, the answers lie within the historic walls of this unique district. Kensington Street offers some of the most charming spaces for private functions.
