ALL ABOUT SICILY
Before moving to Sydney, master chef Lino Sauro operated a very successful Sicilian restaurant in Singapore for ten years.
Sicilian born award-winning chef Lino Sauro (formerly of Gattopardo, Singapore) opened Olio on Kensington Street in early 2017 to show Sydney why Sicilian is the new Italian. Sauro comes from a long line of self-sufficient Sicilian farmers where he grew up with meals that were created with the quality produce grown on the property. This translates onto the menu at Sauro's 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 the star ingredients on Olio Kensington Street’s menu. If your idea of Italian cuisine is pizza and pasta, Sauro’s menu will redefine it!
