    Service was fantastic! Our food was yummy. A couple of the dishes were a little plain but so many others made up for it!

    Not worth even with the deal. Calamari only had chargrill flavour, was rubber feeling and was cold. Steak to finish, was near to cold too from the inside. Must've been sous vide earlier. Wine list is ok.

    Dined on 50% deale. Food was presented nice. Enjoyed the entrees and the Chittara pasta. Didn't enjoy the Kobe Wagyu. Firstly it's not from Kobe as conceded by the staff so it is misleading. It came out medium rare when I asked for medium and it also lacked the fatty marbling and the tenderness/melt factor you would expect from Wagyu or Kobe. Ok for a regular pub steak. Did not meet expectations based on the premium way it was described.

    The food was excellent, displaying both creativity and a perfect combination of flavours and textures. However I felt the service was not to the same calibre. We had to ask for the menus and nobody mentioned specials or walked us through the menu items.

    Service: the biggest problem was food taking an hour to arrive and I wasn’t aware. Being pregnant with diabetes I needed to eat at regular times to regulate blood glucose and avoid indigestion, eating late unplanned made me really gassy and could not enjoy the meal Food: me and my friend did not find the food anything amazing. My friend ordered a medium wagyu, the steak was served very rare (got blood and juice, not even medium rare). It was so chewy I could see her having trouble cutting it. My Murray cod was the best thing, broth tasted delicious and fish was soft. Salad had too much oil and leaves were super big to be picked up/eaten delicately. Pickled onions tasted nice and lifted up the whole salad. My friend also had some scallops that looked delicious, too much sauce in my opinion With the above two comments although it had a nice ambient (music too long for talking), I don’t think it was good value for regular price (but we booked with 50% off promotion). Don’t have a reason to go back

    Pasta not bad but portions so small like entree size, ends up being the most expensive pasta

    Food wasn't as great as expected. Seafood wasn't fresh and can taste the fishy smell from the two infused seafood dishes we ordered. The restaurant was nicely set out and cannot fault the service.

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.
