    Excellent food however the kitchen was very slow. We waited 40 minutes for mains. We had zuchinni flowers, arancini and two pastas. Everything was delicious. Just very sloooooow.

    Great friendly service and lovely atmosphere. Great food really well presented although the portions are very tiny. We shared 3 entrees 2 main and sides and a dessert between 2. Would not be value for money if we hadn’t received the 50% off.

    Food is very average especially for the price tag. Even with 50%off. One of the entrees we ordered king salmon tartare, $34 full price, there was very little salmon tartare and came on top of this thick black pancake thing (which was not mentioned on them menu at all) but it made up 70% of the dish. For a $34 entree you would expect decent amount of salmon. It was really quite disappointing to say the least. Friday night, restaurant was barely 1/3 full. It is clear why this is the case.

    Dear Mandy, we normally are very happy to receive and evaluate all our guests reviews ( good and bad) but this time we really believe your feedback is absolutely pretentious and not reflecting the truth! if you guys came at Olio to fill your belly just because the 50% off, and expecting to have a 67$ food meal for 2 on a friday night and also commenting about food ingredients cost that you dont even have idea, then please go somewhere else, We do offer this Fork promo just hoping that our gourmet guests would have chance to try as much of our signatures possible utilising the 50% offer and NOT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR HARD WORK AND VERY HIGH COSTS WE SUSTAIN! regarding the crowd on friday i believe u are telling another untrue story ( u were sat to outdoor space that we only use when inside the dining room are fully booked! over all again i find this absolutely offensive and inappropriate! have a lovely weekend lino sauro chef-owner

    Service was good but I noticed a lack of communication, wasn't sure who to ask... I paid and then they came again to ask if I wanted to pay... On the other hand, the staff were nice and happy to help. We liked that one of the senior waiter /chef came to explain us more about the menu. recommendations... He was great! Food was nice, very small portions though Tiramisu was really good!!

    My interstate friend was the one who wanted to try Olio today. The restaurant itself looks amazing and my zucchini flowers were quite tasty. Miso cod was okay but I didn’t feel wow’ed. What was really strange was that my friend’s cocktail looked identical to mine, when we ordered 2 different drinks. Also, my friend ordered the pork neck main and the waiter asked if she wanted some “truffle” to go with her pork. She said yes, not realising the truffle costed an additional $60. This wasn’t explained properly. This left a sour note to our otherwise enjoyable meal.

    Food portions were quite small. I ordered tuna as a main and it was pretty much a starter size.

    Portions are smaller than regular size, but with the fork offer that makes it perfect, Recommend the zucchini flowers and the cappelini and zuppa :)

    The highlight was the bread and truffle butter and delicious cocktails. Sadly everything else was ok but nothing special. Cod was sold out so we had the kingfish but it was really small and a little dry. pappardelle was silky but the ragu just needed a little more pep. Dishes were beautifully presented but in the instance of the chocolate tart was a bit more style over substance as the plate was ridiculously huge and the dessert was tiny on it. Actually the only real flaw was the base of the chocolate tart was so hard i kept making clanging noises as would have to chisel away at it with spoon - tasty and crumbled when eaten but it was so difficult to break off a piece with the spoon. Nothing was bad, just Okay.

    Beautiful fit out but some of our dishes were disappointing. There were 5 of us and 3 dishes were nice but 2 were average. Service is great but food needs a little extra.

    Fantastic food, the seafood, pasta and pork were great. Loved the pistachio tart dessert. Service could have probably been a little more attentive but a great night all in all.

    Amazing quality food. We ordered the arancini, papardelle, charred octopus and of course the salt baked fish, absolutely amazing. The head chef came out and prepared the fish for us. Everyone was super lovely. I will definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant.

    The food itself was nice however, the portions were alot smaller than the other tables around us, who I assume did not have the 50% deal. It's not really a deal if your paying half price and receiving half the portions. I've been to other restaurants prior to this with the same deal and the food portions have been normal so I am unsure why they've decided to half ours eg. When our wagyu came out, there were 4 tiny pieces of wagyu on the plate and this was supposed to be a main. We noticed that the table next to us had a lot more. The service was also not the best. They weren't attentive and even brought out the dessert menu before we got our last main. And the waiting time in between each dishes were quite long. Not a great experience for us overall considering this was the first time we've come to this restaurant. We left hungry after.

    Disappointing experience, we waited 25 minutes for our dinks, we ask 4 times to have them still no response for the maître d’. Then we experience further issues with our fish course, only half the fish got served, I complained at this point and the maître d remove some drink for our bill. Thenwhen I trying to pay the waiter snatched the bill from my hand and put the drinks back on the bill. I was to embarrassed of said anything in front of my guest. I be never experienced such a bad service in my life!!!

    A great experience with a group of 11. We had the degustation menu and all the food were of decent portion. Service was slower at times but overall, a place worth going.

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.
