The warehouse-style space that sits opposite the wharf area of Woolloomooloo is one of three Fratelli Fresh cafés in Sydney and with advertising agencies and theatregoers surrounding it, it always has a trendy atmosphere. Get there well before your tummy starts rumbling because there are only a few tables outside on the pavement and the ones inside are nearly always full. There’s nearly always a stool at the bright red mosaic apperitivo bar, however, which offers a daily selection of Italian beers, prosecco and freshly-made juices. As for the food, daily Italian specials are chalked up on a towering blackboard like ragu, fresh salads and antipasti snacks drizzled with fabulous extra virgin olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar. If you like what you’re eating, Fratelli grocery products are on sale in the adjacent Vicino Casa di Fratelli.
