Vicolo is an Italian café located in a Classical Victorian warehouse erected in 1887, located on Kent St in Sydney’s CBD. The venue was designed by D’Ettorre Architects.

“Being Sydney’s only surviving example of a warehouse with a double system of carriageways and a rear courtyard, I was asked to restore the ground floor space to create a natural aged patina and rustic interior befitting to the historical interior. A jam factory in a previous life, this cafe is designed to draw lovers of coffee off the street with its aroma and gleaming custom brass tables and counters,” explains Renato D’Ettorre
