Olio Kensington Street
Olio Kensington Street (Italian for olive oil) is located in the beautifully restored The Old Rum Store with a contemporary indoor dining room and lush rooftop terrace overlooking Chippendale.
Sauro comes from a long lineage of self-sufficient Sicilian farmers where he grew up with meals that were created with the quality produce grown on the property. This translates into Sauro’s menu with dishes that reflect a strong connection to his Sicilian roots and passion for fresh and sustainable produce.
Keeping it in the family, Sauro sources his olive oil – the base of all his dishes – from the family’s Sicilian farm.

It’s was Great food and the staff were great.
Good food and service
Celebrated our first wedding anniversary with dinner at Olio (as we had our wedding lunch there last year) and we were treated like old friends by the staff. Amazing food and service, with wonderful touches like a happy anniversary cake.
Amazing foods and fantastic hospitality services within gentle vibes. You should try this awesome restaurant :)
Our dinner experience has been outstanding from the beginning to the end.
We enjoyed the ambience, the service, the wine and the food was just amazing.
Chef Lino Sauro is a Maestro in his job and I would recommend this experience to all my frends.
Thank you to all the staff at Olio Kensington Street!
Restaurant was great , food was awesome, just needed a little more on the mains.
Staff were really friendly and very competent. We were there for our anniversary, treated us with some champagne and some beautiful extra desert.
Really good would go back again.
Dear Peter absolutely happy to hear from your experience at Olio We are very glad that you guys had a very good time with us. Looking forward to have you here again soon Lino
Food and service were fantastic!...will definitely go back and tell family and friends about the restaurant- my cousin recommended it to me!
A great location and fantastic food. Not too formal, great spot for a semi-fancy, very tasty lunch or dinner.
We loved the Sicilian waitress and the food and wine were delicious
Very beautiful place, a pity that no more customers were enjoying the food due to this situation, but still we felt a really good atmosphere. More intimate.
Food was absolutely phenomenal, every bite we had felt like a party was being held in our mouths. Polipo and scallops are a must as starters if you go there. All four of us had pasta as a main dish and none of them disappointed. Ravioli and papardelle were our favourites and the cheesecake for dessert was something next level. The semifredo and cannolo were ok but cannot compare to that cheesecake.
Definitely coming back, looks perfect and ideal for celebrating a special occasion.
Dear Javier your kind words make us very happy and give us more reason to keep on although the adverse circumstances!
Amazing flavours. Attentive service and the chef serving was a great touch ti the experience.
Dear Vic great to see you at Olio ! looking forward again
Have been a fan since it opened a few years ago.
The degustation was excellent and each dish inventive, attractive and delicious.
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
For us, superlatives apply here!
Dear Berry ! absolutely flattered about our comments! thank you so much for the long time and precious support
Loved this restaurant. Food was delicious and the wait staff were exceptional. The interiors were beautiful too. Would highly recommend to anyone.
The food is amazing there, a bit pricey but worthy of it. Highly recommended. Also try their Italian white wine, very beautiful wine .
Sensational! Always great food and great service.
The food portions are quite small and the food was nothing special. It does say that they recommend 2 dishes per person. For the price you pay, however, it was not worth the experience. The service was not the best. I got the bill and waited 5 minutes for someone to help me with the payment. He then just drops the EFTPOS machine onto the table and walks away.
Really pleasant meal at Olio ... octopus starter a standout.
Loved my entrees .( octopus and calamari)
Lobster pasta was good but not outstanding.
Cannolo with ricotta was perfectly made.
We will definitely coming back .
It was lovely to experience Sicilian cuisine especial now when we can't travel to Sicily, so we got lucky and Sicily came to us :)
Fantastic food and service - a place we will return to again and again
All well presented, though service a little disjointed. Raspberry and gin cocktail was delicious. Food was tasty and delivered promptly. Appetisers and petite fours a lovely touch. Ambience and decor lovely.
We had the set menu and although the food was delicious, it was not enough and we were both hungry on the way home. The service was very uncommitted and the sommelier was not very knowledgeable.
Was great restaurant and the food was sensational. Ambience was a bit off because of COVID restrictions but overall great restaurant
Very poor service and food.
The desserts were very bland
Our group had the degustation menu and it was great value. It would have been helpful to have had some further information on what each course was. We understand the wait staff was new but this would have improved the over-all service and enhanced the quality of the dining experience. Food was very good and great value. The wine list was very good as well providing some good choices. Will definitely come back again in the future!
Lovely ambience and soft music in the background, good food especially desserts
Lovely restaurant , fantastic ambience with good food n excellent service!
Thank you very much Leno n staff for a very enjoyable experience celebrating my son’s 21st Bday.
We will see you all again...👍
I had a wonderful time at Olio. I was dining alone and the staff made me feel very welcome. The food was fantastic, my stand out was the Squid Ink Pasta with Crab meat. I am looking forward to returning once COVID-19 restrictions are completely gone! Highly recommended.
Such a beautiful restaurant. Exceptional service and really nice food. One of my favourites!
Dear Julia always great to have you at Olio and thank you so much for your amazing support
We had the degustation with matching wines. Each dish was superb in taste and presentation, and delicious Sicilian wines. The chef and waiter were attentive and seemed delighted to be working again! I enjoyed the space between tables due to current restrictions. A wonderful evening.
Dear Helen Thank you so much for the lovely comments!!!
The restaurant charged $5 for water without the waiters telling us first
Dear Angela we really want to apology for the unpleasant incident we do normally inform our guests that free flow of still and sparkling water is chargeable 5$ for the whole time you spend with us
Great ambience and beautiful decor. Service was somewhat attentive but knowledge of the menu was not. Tableware and food presentation was a delight however portions were small and pricey. Highly recommend the squid ink pasta and the tiramisu!
dear Betty, we are very glad you ad good time with us and we Truly appreciate your sincere and constructive feedback!
Very pleasant dining experience for our first outing during this Covid times. Loved the ambience, food was good and the service great!
