The verdict

Celebrated Sicilian Chef, Lino Sauro, is moving into Kensington Street with his newest restaurant, Olio. He’s spent the last 10 years in Singapore, heading up the kitchen at Gattapardo, and now it’s Sydney’s turn and oh boy, you should definitely have your stretchy clothing at the ready.

Aptly named, each dish will start with olive oil sourced straight from his family’s farm in Sicily, but you can expect classics like saffron, wild fennel and seasonal seafood on the menu as well. Lino’s out to prove that Sicilian is the new Italian, ditching heavier foods for lighter options. And with influences from North Africa and Mediterranean Europe, we may just agree with him.

Olio is opening in the restored Old Rum Store, joining the ranks of Bistrot Gavroche and the soon to open pop-up private kitchen. It’s set to open early in 2017, so keep your eyes peeled.
