About Ti Amo, Sicily!


Osteria GIA invited Lino Sauro, a culinary maestro known for his achievements in winning awards during his profession as a chef. The Sicilian-born chef founded Olio in early 2017 to show Sydney foodies why Sicily is being called the new Italian. Olio is located in The Old Rum Store, an architecturally beautiful setting with a contemporary style dining area plus a lush roof terrace overlooking beautiful Chippendale views. Sauro, who grew up in Sicily, always enjoyed food made with fresh ingredients directly taken from his own plantations, which are the inspiration for his current menu creations. Continuing the secrets of family recipes and cooking, Sauro uses olive oil as the basis of all his delicious dishes. The hallmarks of Sicilian fine cuisine are seafood, wild fennel, raisins, saffron and couscous, which are key ingredients on the menu at Olio.

These two famous chefs are so excited to collaborate and present interesting menus starting from Burrata (smoked buffalo burrata with sicilian almond cream, nectarine), Tonnarelli (homemade squid Ink spaghetti, spanner crab and spicy pork nduja sauce), Rigatoni (mussels sauce, lemon & roasted pistachios). For main course, enjoy Dentice (red snapper filet, harissa butter, broccolini, currants, scallions) and Cassata (sicilian cassata and orange sorbet) for dessert. A special menu that is ready to whet your appetite!
