Olio Polipo Sicilian food Olio desert

Fine nuova Sicilian cuisine from mulit-award-winning chef, Lino sauro

Chippendale’s burgeoning Kensington Street precinct gets another injection of exciting new international food talent. Sicilian-born award-winning chef Lino Sauro (Gattopardo, Garibaldi Singapore) opens Olio in early 2017 to show Sydney why Sicilian is the new Italian. Olio (Italian for olive oil) opens in the beautifully restored Old Rum Store with a contemporary indoor dining room plus lush rooftop terrace overlooking Chippendale.

Sauro comes from a long lineage of self-sufficient Sicilian farmers where he grew up with meals that were created with the quality produce grown on the property. This translates into Sauro’s menu with dishes that reflect a strong connection to his Sicilian roots.

Keeping it in the family, Sauro sources his olive oil – the base of all his dishes – from the family‘s Sicilian farm. Typical of the region, seasonal seafood, wild fennel, raisins, saffron and couscous are hero ingredients on Olio’s menu.
