Palazzo Salato is a 120-Seat Roman-inspired Trattoria Now Open in Sydney

We’ve got your weekend plans sorted – a heritage-listed building in Sydney’s CBD has just had a major facelift, transforming into a 120-seat trattoria with an impressive 600-bottle wine lost and the hand-rolled pasta of your dreams – what more could you ask for?

Located in the heart of Sydney on Clarence Street, Palazzo Salato is housed in a building steeped in history (the old Redoak Boutique Beer Cafe, to be exact) and the fit-out of velvet banquettes and custom art couldn’t be more on-point. As the newest venture from Matt Swieboda, Nathanial Hatwell and Scott McComas-Williams – known for Sydney’s OG small wine bar Love, Tilly Devine – we couldn’t be more excited for what’s in store.

Taking inspiration from the very best trattorias of Rome, you’ll feel like you’ve been teleported to the streets of Italy, with the help of a faultless menu and a Europe-inspired wine list. Executive Chef Alex Major and Head Chef Vincenzo Romeo will be serving up handmade pasta with a focus on protein from Australia’s best sustainable farmers. Think scarpinocc filled with Andean Sunrise potato, spaghetti alla chitarra with bottarga and egg yolk, and blue-eye trevalla with pipis, flat iron steak with Salato butter, marron alla griglia with grappa, just to get those taste buds tingling.

Meanwhile, Group Sommelier Jade Febvre, Head Sommelier Julie Barbero and Head Bartender Jordan Grocock will guide guests through a list of 15 cocktails and 600-plus bottles crafted by some of the world’s most sought-after producers. Indulge in Burgundy from Domaine de Chassorney, hard-to-find Barolo from Giuseppe Mascarello and aged amari from the ’60s and ’70s.

The grown-up, a little fancier (but still fun) next step for the Love Tilly Group, Palazzo Salato is the next best thing since spag bol, and we sure know where we’ll be going when the Italian cravings strike.

Palazzo Salato is now open at 201 Clarence Street on Monday to Friday from 12pm to 12am and Saturdays from 4pm to 12am. Check out the link below to make a booking and view the menu.
