Chippendale’s burgeoning Kensington Street precinct has received another injection of exciting new international food talent. Sicilian-born award-winning chef Lino Sauro (Gattopardo, Singapore) opened Olio Kensington Street in January 2017 to show Sydney why Sicilian is the new Italian. With a wealth of knowledge under his belt, Sauro’s menu reflect a strong connection to his Sicilian roots.

Olio (Italian for oil) has both indoor dining and a sought-after rooftop terrazza complete with lush olive trees and views across the rooftops of Kensington Street and the vertical garden of Central Park making this a highly sought-after function and events space. The venue can be hired exclusively and can accommodate up to 150 people.
