    Great food, awesome fitout and location service a little average. Highly recommend ordering the octopus, so great! Service was a little slow, particularly when trying to get the bill, we were left waiting a while

    This restaurant has an outstanding ambience. The decoration, music and lighting creates a perfect atmosphere. Great selection of wines. However, a few dishes that we had did not make sense in flavour. Apart from that, the gnnochi was superb.

    Being Sicilian I have a high expectation when eating out that I always compare it to the amazing cultural home made cuisine I grew up with. Let me say in no uncertain terms Lino’s OLIO is up there with the best I have ever experienced. I urge you to not bother looking anywhere else if you want to have a Sicilian food experience you will not find anywhere in Sydney. Do yourself a favour you will be back again and again and you will also meet the most humble chef and staff in Lino. Bon Appetite

    Food was great. It's a very large space and atmosphere is a bit strange when it's not a busy time.

    We sat at terrace instead of a beautiful indoor dining due to private function

    Went to try the restaurant with The Fork special. The ambience of the restaurant was great but we felt the restaurant staff were focusing on serving other tables who’s paying full price. The waiter also got our wine order wrong. The food was okay but two pastas we ordered were quite dry with not much content.

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.
