Genuine Italian chefs, good food, wine, and things to buy
Everything that's good about eating and drinking in Italy comes together under one roof in August with the Italian Wine and Food Festival.

Italian food features from street-style pizza for the whole family to fresh-pasta for the connoisseur! This festival has food, drink, entertainment and information. This will be terrific for everyone from the spaghetti-eating children to the most steady Italian-speaking wine lover.

Genuine Italian pasta

Sydney, your Italian adventure awaits!
Australia's favourite Italian festival will return to Australian Technology Park on Sunday 26th August 2018.


You can journey through Italy with over 200 wines to taste, meet winemakers and importers, or attend an Italian wine masterclass. You can also feast on pizza, pasta and Italian snacks in the pop-up restaurants. Featured here will be some of Sydney's favourites:
Via Napoli
Lucio Pizzeria
Plus more still to be confirmed

Sydney's top Italian chefs will be sharing their love of cooking on the main stage. One of these chefs is Sydney's favourite Sardinian chef, Giovanni Pilu who will be on the main stage cooking from the heart on festival day. Also on the stage will be Silvia Colloca and Stefano Manfredi.

Yummy food!

You will be able to eat/taste your way through the Italian market, while you sip on an authentic Italian cocktail from the Negroni Bar. Or else you can also relax in the festival wine gardens. The festival is all about celebrating wine, food and culture together in a unique Italian style.

Your Comment
Mutti products are the best. Passata, Polpa, baby roma, cherry tomatoes - no juice added. Always used in my 'cuccina' in 'minestra', casseroles, 'sugo' for pasta. Best import from Italia for cooking, Saluti.
