Sydney’s favourite Italian festival is back! Everything that’s good about eating and drinking in Italy comes together under one roof in August with the Italian Wine + Food Festival. Just as the appeal of Italian food runs from street-style pizza-fun for the whole family to fresh-pasta finery for the connoisseur, the festival has food and drink, entertainment and information to suit everyone from spaghetti-loving kids to the most engaged Italian-speaking wine lover.
Sydney’s top Italian chefs are turning out in force to make it a day to remember, with much-loved locals Giovanni Pilu (Pilu at Freshwater) and Stefano Manfredi leading the charge. Feast on pizza, pasta and Italian snacks in our pop-up restaurants from Sydney favourites Marta, Lucio Pizzeria plus more still to be confirmed. Plus there’ll be cooking demonstrations with chefs and providores on the Main Stage.
Shop like an Italian and taste your way through the Marketplace, brimming with salumi, cheese, pasta, bread, coffee, olive oil, pastries and gelato featuring Vannella Cheese, Buon Ricordo, Cow and the Moon Gelato, Truffle Traders plus more.
Explore over 200 Italian wines by the region, plus Italian-centric Aussie wines, or take an Italian Wine Masterclass curated by our team. Meet winemakers and importers, learn more about the grape varieties, the regions and best of all, how good they taste. For something stronger, there’s coffee from Espresso di Manfredi’s baristas, Moretti Beer on tap, or sip on an authentic Italian aperitivi from the Negroni Bar, serving up Negroni’s and Venetian Spritz all day!
Proudly presented by Mutti, the festival is all about celebrating wine, food and culture together in inimitable Italian style.
