Italy’s Most Beloved Panini Purveyor Is Teaming Up With Maybe Sammy For The Aperitivo Hour Of Our Sanga Dreams

Cool Sh*t, Drink, Eat / 30 January 2023

Ditch that soggy lunchbox sanga and smack your lips around  Italy’s ‘Best Designer Sandwich 2022’.

This February 8th, mark your diaries to embark on a flavourful tour of Italy’s best without the airfare. One of the world’s most celebrated panini purveyors, Alessandro Frassica of Ino Panino, is bringing his signature sandwiches to Sydney for two pop-ups in February at Sammy Junior in Sydney’s CBD and Maybe Sammy in The Rocks.

Head in early because you know these babies are going to sell out fast, with just a limited number of sandwiches available between 12.30 – 3.30pm. The sandwich menu will reflect the freshest ingredients Alessandro sources in Sydney, created with a signature Italian touch, by the master himself.

For those that aren’t familiar with Ino Panino, the multiple award-winning Florence eatery is visited by celebs on the reg, and has acquired the reputation of being the best in the biz. Thrust together by the foodie gods at a party in Italy, Stefano Catino, co-owner of Sydney’s Sammy Junior and Maybe Sammy, and Alessandro Frassica commenced planning of a panini-in-residence gig.
