Italian
Sicilian is the unsung hero of cuisines in the global food scene, a cultural melting pot of influences from Greece to France, Spain to the Middle East.

Sicilian-born, award-winning chef Lino Sauro opened Olio Kensington Street in early 2017 to show Sydney why Sicilian is the new Italian. With quality produce and dishes that reflect Sauro’s menu strong connection to his Sicilian roots, Olio Kensington Street boasts true Sicilian service with a modern approach to many iconic and classic dishes including incredible seafood and handmade pasta.

    Food was average. The arancini were really good but unfortunately everything else was average. The black ink crab pasta lacked flavour and had very little crab. The ragu pasta was nicer but not something you’d want to go back for. Servings were generous though. We didn’t try dessert. The service was a real problem. We had to ask 3 different waiters to have any request done. Maybe the staff were new but a few of the waitresses had no idea about anything.

    Incredibly expensive for a very ordinary food. Very expensive seafood basket, 1/2 the food was overcooked and burnt.

    Great experience. Amazing food including Burrata,Arancini,Swordfish and Squid ink pasta,all those are a must. We couldn't get our first option wine but received the chef's suggestion which was an amazing match with the food. Our waitress was very friendly,helpful and always on top of the service. Staff was very nice to let me change the time of my booking. Very satisfied that we picked up Olio over other options for my birthday's celebration thanks to one of our friends working there suggestion. Thanks a lot Olio.

    Absolutely great experience. My husband and I came for lunch. Service was exceptional as they were quite accomodating - I did not know the seafood platter had to be pre-ordered, but when we asked they were happy to do so. And no regrets, it was beautiful! We finished off with the Olio and Millefoglie for dessert and they were a brilliant palette cleanser. Ambience was lovely, music was great (not too loud, you can actually hear each other talk), so great atmosphere for those that want an intimate or cosy meal. We will definitely be going back!

    Food was delicious but surprisingly only a small selection of options. Very seafood based so if you're not a big lover, maybe you should give it a pass. Service was disappointing despite how nice the staff were. I felt like I was on a table outside of either waiters service. No one knew who was meant to be looking after us or checking in on us. Mistakes in drinks and desserts and overall a low sense of urgency. Despite these mistakes, I would have hoped staff would be more deligent but they weren't. The bill and the eventual EFTPOS machine took forever to come out. Not the biggest deal but another gripe to an overall poor service - my friend didn't get a birthday dessert treat despite it being specified in the booking and at least 8 other tables experiencing it. Not even a mention as we were being sat?

    A return visit for Friday lunch. The menu offers a good range of choices. My swordfish was a generous serve and perfectly cooked. Matched with an excellent Italian white wine available by the glass. The others at lunch were similarly happy. Not cheap....but definitely good value

    Absolutely amazing, the food, the service, the atmosphere. We did the chefs banquet, and everything we picked was delicious, the crab pasta and steak AMAZING, the best thing was 1000% the desert, had low expectations on the icecream but OMGGG... that was the best desert I have had in my life.

    The kingfish sashimi lacked flavour, and the beef carpaccio was overwhelmed with garnishes that took over any flavor that might have been in the beef. The Wagyu beef was tough and clearly lacked marbling. The swordfish was okay, but over cooked. The Olio 2.0 dessert looked unappealing and tasted worse. The meal did not live up to the expectations we had going in. The service was very good.
