Sicilian-born restaurateur and chef Lino Sauro has impressed Singaporeans with his restaurant Gattopardo and now has Sydneysiders talking. Olio’s dining space takes on a loft appeal with large windows that lure in the sun to light the area whilst the exposed bricks and bare ceilings make a trendy statement. Even the crockery is selected to perfectly complement the food in a harmonious relationship.
In true hospitable Italian fashion, a selection of breads and a welcome dish are presented to start, leaving you keen to sample the upcoming dishes. Ham and cheese make a perfect partnership and Chef Sauro’s burrata and prosciutto di Parma is one that is just beautiful. The dish is accompanied by fried bread, mushrooms and lettuce leaves. The ravioli is a standout dish: pasta parcels filled with king prawns, topped with black truffle and burrata sauce.
PSST! Olio is Italian for olive oil and they just happen to have olive oil that you would be happy to drink as a beverage!
