This was the king salmon dish $34 on the black pancake (which wasn’t mentioned on the menu) very little salmon. I don’t understand how this could be priced at $34. Even at 50% off $17 it wasn’t worth the price tag.

    Loved the degustation menu, they even allowed one diner to change one of the dishes. Fantastic service, a beautiful setting, a really lovely evening

    Amazing squid ink pasta and nice , friendly service. Very nice atmosphere as well. The only caveat was one piece of wagyu had a chunky sinew that was quite difficult to bite and chew, and I would have liked my water to be refilled more regularly without asking.

    Excellent bresaola and capasanta, as usual. Tried out desserts for the first time and I highly recommend the fichi crostata (It was a special) or the traditional cannoli - both outstanding. Main courses not for big eaters, but still of very good quality. Great service and atmosphere.

    Impeccable service by the staff. Delicious and beautifully presented food. Highlights were the Raghu pasta and king salmon. We would definitely come back again. Great for special occasion or a date.

    Considering the normal price and venue, the food tastes quite pedestrian.

    Food was very average. The zucchini flowers were soggy & tasteless and the ragu pasta was undercooked.

    The food is overall good and the degustation menu and the price is reasonable. Seafood ingredient is fresh, the spaghetti with sardine taste gorgeous and would be great if it doesn't sit in a mushy sauce . Dessert is OK not our liking. Don't like our table is right at the entrance when half of the restaurant is empty at that stage so it is a timing management. The service is also OK as there is very little interaction for me to comment. I will come here again for the food but hopefully other item will step up more

    we tried tuna steak, wagyu and pork and the urchin pasta, all of them are excellent. dessert is good too.even with no offer its worth to try too. if the portion of beef can be larger it will be great.

    Quality of food was great and we liked every dish. Serving is on the smaller side, as expected with fine dining. We were greeted immediately and kindly by lady at the front desk. The young man waiting on us was polite and attentive. Service wise, very good. Only minor issue was that our starters came separately, as did our mains. Overall, I would revisit.

    Great Sicilian find. The food was excellent. We all had the pastas and the 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our choice. I had the bucatini with sardines and raisins and it was amazing. The staff were friendly and attentive. Will definitely be going back.

About the restaurant

Chippendale’s burgeoning Kensington Street precinct gets another injection of exciting new international food talent. 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. Located in the beautifully restored The Old Rum Store, Olio (Italian for oil) features a contemporary indoor dining room and rooftop terrazza overlooking Chippendale. The menu reflects a strong connection to Sauro’s Sicilian roots. Keeping it in the family, Sauro sources his olive oil – the base of all his dishes – from the family‘s Sicilian farm. Expect to see ingredients that are typical of the Sicilian region such as seasonal seafood, wild fennel, raisins, saffron and couscous throughout Olio Kensington Street’s restaurant dining and terrazza menus.
