Macleay Street’s Buzzing As Snack Kitchen Serves Up Unpretentious Italian Bliss

Eat, Sydney / 12 January 2024

From anchovies to charred sardines, welcome to the art of in-between plates.

Macleay Street, teeming with culinary energy, welcomes a newcomer who whispers more than it shouts. Snack Kitchen isn’t overtly flashy; it’s an intimate invitation to experience Italian charm through shared plates, vibrant glasses, and a welcoming embrace.

Think less grand spectacle, more sun-drenched trattoria. Maurice Terzini, a veteran of Sydney’s dining scene, teams up with his son Sylvester, bringing their shared passion for Italian heritage to life in a space buzzing with understated elegance.

Forget elaborate menus and suffocating decor. Snack Kitchen invites you to breathe, to linger, to let the conversation flow as freely as the wine. Luminous white walls and sleek lines become a canvas for the true stars: rustic plates groaning with artisanal delights and clinking glasses filled with Italian sunshine.

Sylvester, having honed his craft at iconic establishments, takes the reins here. The menu is his love letter to Italy, a symphony of small plates begging to be shared. Start with tartine topped with creamy burrata and plump figs, anchovies dancing on crostini, or charred octopus singing the songs of the Tuscan coast.

No rigid courses here, just culinary freedom. Build your own feast, as the plates create their own rhythm. And pair the dishes with an extensive wine list, that rotates monthly through the dynamic duo of Australian and European gems, keeping your palate on its toes.
