Italian Street Kitchen to Open in Neutral Bay

A little slice of Roman street life is coming to the lower north shore.

A hub of homemade Italian street food is coming to Neutral Bay, bringing with it all the crispy arancini, homemade meatballs and cannelloni you could fit in your face. Italian Street Kitchen is the lower north shore's new feasting haven, inspired by the street food fairs of Rome with its communal, tasting-focused dining.

Steered by Sydney restaurateur Mauro Marcucci, owner of Baccomatto Osteria, and owned by the Seagrass Boutique Hospitality Group (The Meat & Wine Co., Ribs and Burgers, the upcoming Hunter & Barrel), Italian Street Kitchen will feature interactive food stations where you can feast on antipasto (arancini, fried & baked cheese, salumi & formaggio, meatballs et al) or nibble on a morsel of their lamb or chicken open flame spit roast, or dive into freshly-made pasta and woodfire pizza.

Designed by Otto Design Interiors (Kurtosh, Ribs & Burgers), the Italian Street Kitchen space will apparently channel a stripped-back Italian street vibe — natural timbers, polished concrete and plaster, refined black steel, open kitchen and an area to display fresh produce and home-cured meats.

Italian Street Kitchen opens 5/19-21 Grosvenor Street, Neutral Bay this October.

    I came to your restaurant and ordered some takeaway. It was a busy saturday night and I was waiting patiently in the corner on one of your bar stools. After about 30 minutes one of your extremely rude employees comes up to me and tells me I have to move as a "PAYING CUSTOMER" would like to sit there. I inform him that I am also one of these paying customers and that I'm waiting for my order. He again rudely informs me that he doesn't care and that I have to move. So I ask him if he thinks it's OK IF I STAND HERE IN FRONT OF THE COUNTER FOR 30+ MINUTES. To which he replies yes that's fine I'll go check on your order. What do you know it's been ready for ages sitting on the counter with a whole lot of other orders. By the time I get home the food is pretty much cold. Sort your staff out!
